A retired English teacher, I reflect on the many facets of my life: retirement, reading, writing, gardening, faith, parenting adult children, grandchildren, loss, grief, healing from grief, surviving the loss of a loved one by suicide, hair loss, alopecia, aging, and living life at the foot of the Rocky mountains.

Happy Birthday to My Wonderful Husband
He is a prince of a man.
I know of few who are so kind.
I was blessed to meet him when I was just sixteen.
He is loved, admired, and respected by many.
He is the much loved father and step-father to eight children.
Seventeen children call him Grandpa.
Many in the city respectfully call him Mr. Wessely.
He was a teacher, counselor, and principal to thousands.
My German Prince
Heidleberg Castle, Heidleberg, Germany
The place where his parents married.
I am the woman who is greatly blessed to be his wife.
We've had a wonderful life together.
I am blessed to have him as my companion.
I wrote this poem for him a few years back as anniversary gift.
