In my life I have been a daughter, a sister, a student, a home economist, a wife, a stay-at-home mom, a volunteer, and a musician. I bake, I knit, and I paint (well, I used to). I have taught people to play guitar. I've taught them to sew, to cook, to hang wallpaper, to cane a chair seat, and I've taught them how to start a music jam.
I've led a horse judging team (state champs), a song circle, a Sunday School class, and a ukulele band. I've taken children to camp, fed teenagers by the hundreds, hiked to the top of Diamond Head, and helped move a herd of cows. I've tended to sick children (sometimes not mine) and cared for older folks. I've learned to use a smart phone and an iPad.
I think it was all to get me ready to be a grandmother.
