Welcome to the porch

Glad you joined me on the porch. Welcome to  My Right Side Up Life. The view is amazing, the coffee is plentiful and I always enjoy company.


We must be ready to allow ourselves to be interrupted by God ~ Detrick Bonhoffer

I lost what every woman wants and gained what every woman needs. When a disabling illness shattered the career I loved, crippled my active hobbies and rearranged all my relationships, I thought my life turned completely upside down. Instead, the challenges turned my life right side up.
