Many jump right in to marriage and having babies with childlike naivete. Now within a day of turning 56 years of age, I’m confronted with the depth of immaturity that was my reality especially regarding having babies. My thoughts were continually about myself.

My blog posts entitled, “Person-Driven Life” & “What’s All the Fuss?”, of my “no diary, no sugar fast” for the month of September, brings into perspective the “why” behind the denial of these tasty food groups.
