This is my first 'selfie' ever!  The picture shows me as I am, no doubt about it.  Older than I like to admit, with more pounds and wrinkles than I need, but mostly happy with my life at the moment.

I love my work at Bedon Baptist Church, where I have been the Director of Music for 18 years.  Writing and arranging music for my choirs has become a passion for me.  We are currently preparing music for Advent and Christmas, and I come home humming tunes and wake in the night with the music running through my head. 

I retired from teaching four years ago, when my mother needed a full-time caregiver.  So I spend my days with her, balancing her needs with my own.

I am a grandmother, three little ones so far, and I try to be available for them whenever they need me.  Caring for the youngest in the family and the oldest at the same time is an interesting juxtaposition! 

So, hope you'll pop on by for a visit now and then.  See you soon.


  1. Actually, you were braver than I, Lynn, for I am partially (and intentionally) in disguise. Thanks for stopping by my blog (and I like your photo!)

  2. I am playing as well. Nice to meet you!

  3. Hi Lynn! I am going on this journey too! I don't have grandchildren yet but my mom is 90 and I can see in the future I am going to have to think about caring for her too!

  4. Thank you for the visit and for the wonderful comment on my blog. I appreciate it so much.
    Your self portrait is beautiful--well done for your fist one. When my mom was passing from breast cancer we moved in with my dad to help him care for her. He had been doing it for almost 3 years and needed some relief. It was difficult but well worth the time as it aforded me the chance to give back to a woman that gave so much to me and my siblings.
    OOooo so deep, sorry for that.
    My oldest son is just embarking on a teaching career. He is a graphic designer and will be teaching art! he graduates next week with his second degree.
    I hope you enjoy this blog-a-thon and meet lots of wonderful kindred spirits along the way!
