About ME

Welcome to the Potter's Wheel! We are so glad to have you stop by! Although one may be tempted to think you are on a blog about pottery, don't let the title fool you! This is a collection, a chronicle so to speak, of my world as a piece of lumpy clay on the crazy spinning wheel of The Potter. It is my view, as I see it, while spinning wildly in what sometimes feels like an out of control ride at the county fair. Although it appears that way to me and to the casual observer, the wheel is under the full control and guidance of the One. The One who can take a lumpy piece of clay and eventually turn it in to something beautiful in His eyes. My stories will cover so many topics that I have tried to break them down in an easy manner with the tabs below. Look down now!!!! You will find tabs that cover FAITH, FAMILY, CANCER, HOMESCHOOLING, KIDS ACTIVITIES, AND ADVENTURES ON THE ROAD. The posts are best read under the guise of each tab instead of in chronological order. It is part of my LUMPY ADHD, so you will have to deal with it! I hope that something I write will provide you with a "golden nugget" to put in your pocket for your own journey. Get out your motion sickness pills...It is going to be a crazy ride.
Love ya, Lumpy

When I was diagnosed with cancer 5 years ago, I wanted to make a "BUCKET LIST".  Corny and overdone, YES.  However, when you are a faced with the question "What if I die from this horrible disease?" You start thinking of all the things you wished you did before you die.  As I started to make my list, there was a recurring theme.

 1. Visit the Grand Canyon
 2. Visit the Redwood Forest
 3. Go to the Gulf shore in Texas
blah, blah, blah...
As I wrote all of these desires in my raggedy notebook, I realized that one item on the bucket list could take care of several items at once.  With the killing a bird with one stone attitude creeping into my heart, so did the ONE and ONLY real bucket list item.  If I die tomorrow, I am so content and happy with my life, EXCEPT for achieving my goal to travel the country with my family in a RV.  So there it was, one item on the bucket list.  It seems so difficult to achieve five years ago.  

It has been 5 years since I wrote those words.  It has seemed like it may never come to fruition at times.  However, now we are taking the baby steps to make this dream a reality.  Over the course of the next several blog posts, I will start to fill you all in on how we are making this dream a reality.  What steps did we/are we taking to make this bucket list a reality, will be described step by step. 

Please come back soon for all of the exciting details!
