Hi, I’m Sandra, wonderfully and uniquely made by God. My name means “helper of men” and I have always desired to help others. I love God, reading, words and writing. Have done so since I was a little girl. I remember when the bookmobile used to come into the neighborhood and the maximum number of books you could check out was ten. I would read them all in that week and look forward to the next weeks’ selection.
I also love my children very much. Each child has given me growth and development because of who they are and their entrance into this world. I am resilient, if nothing else. Having lived in six different states and twice as many cities, there is a lot to share. My children used to joke that their classmates thought they were army brats. Not so. However, they have had experiences that many do not get until they become adults.
I love learning and went back to school late in life to receive my Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design. My greatest love is writing though and the graphic design knowledge just helps me with layout. Photography is a hobby that is used for background and other design projects. Unfortunately, I lost thousands of images last year after upgrading to OS X Yosemite. I have started over. It has helped that publishing some of them on the Internet allowed me to recapture a few. This is one I do enjoy as much as the sunset image used in the header.
Believer, mother, writer, designer, poet and other hats make me who I am. My desire is that you will enjoy the site and be encouraged by the words shared from wearing these hats. The image below was taken from someone’s yard in South Carolina. I love it and use it often. The composition itself expresses a lot about me.
