Hello! My name is Susan and I am glad you're here. As far back as I can remember, writing has always been a passion of mine. I write about most everything that inspires me including my personal life experiences as a family caregiver, nutrition, and healthy lifestyle. I live in the beautiful state of Colorado with my husband and two rambunctious dogs. I invite you to have a look around. Please feel free to contact me, I love hearing from my readers!
In this moving, soul-searching memoir, Susan tells her story of a troubled childhood with a mother suffering from grief and depression.
Years later, when her mother was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and dementia, Susan suddenly found herself making the difficult decision to care for both of her parents.
She soon discovered that as her mother's disease progressed, dementia enabled her to become a different person entirely. A new relationship slowly evolved, and for the first time, Susan felt hope that she would finally have the mother she always longed for.
After her mother's death, Susan's grief led her on a journey to search for answers that took her back to a place she once called home. After unlocking the secrets to her mother's troubled past, Susan comes full circle with her family legacy and found healing, strength to forgive, and faith in her own future.
