About Libby

I’m a wearer of many hats…wife, mother, and grandmother, daughter, friend, activist.I’ve been married for 40 wonderful years. My husband and I, have 10 grown children, and 121 growing grandchildren (with more on the way), and we are the care takers to 2 dogs. Gung Poe Wigglebutt (Black Pug), is our newest addition, and Gabriel Guardian Angel (Plott Hound/Wemaraner), is my Medic Alert/Balance Assist, Service Dog. A  few years back, we lost our senior companions…. George Henry Lester (Fawn Pug), and Gracie Girl (Carolina Dog).

Throughout our lives, we have encountered many hardships, but we continue to grown stronger, and more in love… each and every day.  Our family motto is:
“What Doesn’t Kill Us…Makes Us Stronger”.
It has served us well.

I’m a middle aged, overweight (or under tall) reading, scrapbooking, photo taking, crafting, jewelry making, contest entering, blog hopping, tutu making, animal loving, survivor. My many talents include being able to fold a fitted sheet, while blind folded, spending my children’s inheritance, making my grandchildren laugh, and being able to cook for a crowd of 300 or more, without a second thought…unfortunately, cooking for 2 isn’t working out so well.

Chronic illnesses, and a brain injury, make life a little more difficult interesting, but I’m  is a survivor and so grateful for the chance to be able to watch my family continue to grow and flourish.  I have chosen Joy over Sorrow…an Attitude of Gratitude…and instead of living with a woe is me mentality, I try to look at hardships, as a way to learn and grow. Unwavering support from my husband, my Service Dog, Gabe, and my faith in God, make a very positive impact on my life. We are active members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

I live, love, and laugh as much as possible.

  1. You do what? I counted over ten hat you wear. I love your smile and the positive way you lead your life despite adversity. It is an inspiration to me. I had an auto accident almost 5 years ago and am still suffering the results of injuries. Sometimes I slip in to this woe is me mode. (Although I don’t complain to people) Thanks for sharing your Live, Love and Laugh philosophy.
