I've been a member of Beliefnet since 2000. I love coming here. It gives me a chance to vent about things. And I have learned so much from everyone here. Everyone is my teacher.
I'm a widow, an empty nester and a still grieving mother. I lost my husband of 20 years and my 15 year old son back in 2004 in a most unexpected and heartbreaking manner (which I won't go into right now).
My daughter is a graduate of the Univ. Of Hawaii@ Manoa
I am NCSU's oldest freshman (well, one of the oldest). I've returned to college after a 24 year absence, and I am loving it!!! My daughter - who proudly calls me a nerdy geek, a title I am honored to have - is my biggest supporter and boy does she stay on me. What can I say she was on the Dean's List, I have to take her gentle scoldings! "Mom, have you done your homework? Mom, keep your mind off them boys and on your books!" Boy, payback is hell!
I love to travel, dance, walk/lift weights and I'm a diehard Trekkie. I want to learn 4 different languages
I may be alone, but I'm not lonely. I have my daughter and other family and my friends. And I have love in my life. I am humbled by it, and am grateful.
I look foward to waking up every morning. There's so much to see and so much to do. Though my daughter and I have suffered a tremendous loss, life is good.
My belief statement is: IDIC: Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations. As is the Creator, we are eternal multi-dimensional spiritual beings. We are all of the Creator (an energy of Pure Unconditional Love) just vibrating at a different frequency as we experience this dimension (and all the other dimensions and all the other time/space continuums simultaneously). Once everyone and everything finishes here in this Earth Life System it's off to create new realities out in the great unknown, oh the fun......
