I am an educated and independent women in the prime of my life and starting over after the death of my husband. Photography is my hobby and I enjoy grouping it with travel.
I am a mother, grandmother, retired teacher and a widow after 38 years of marriage. I am looking to partially cut the apron strings and trying new adventures. I am looking forward to enjoying my hobbies and venturing into those of the people I meet. I especially want to travel and learn more about our world.
I guess I should mention that I have an ileostomy for 13 years and while it is not ideal it is better than the years I had to deal with UC. I make it work.
I have had the good fortune to meet an ostomate from this site and we have become life partners. This proves that an ileostomy can be a beginning of a new life.
