76, Kalamazoo, MIMy name is Irene and for the last 8 years I have lived in Kalamazoo, MI. Prior to living here, I lived in Midland, MI where I was born and raised on a farm. I am the 11th of 12 children of Slovak decent. My father came to the US in 1914 and my mother came to 1920. They both came from Lipnica which is now in Poland instead of Slovakia, I graduated from high school in 1959; worked as a secretary at the Dow Chemical Company for two years; then when to the U. of M. for the dental hygienist program. After working for several years, I stayed home to raise my children. I have owned 4 home based businesses & still work out of my home. I am widowed and have 4 children; two daughters that are married & have two children each. My two sons are not married. My family is the most important thing in my life & I try to spend as much time as possible with them. Two grandsons are adopted & one was born with multiple birth problems so I do spend as much time as I can helping out. I try to go to daily Mass & lector on Sundays as well as during the week. My favorite saint is St. Joan of Arc. Joan is my middle name so I have been friends with her for a long time. Plus she was a fighter & over the years I have had to lean on her to help me raise 4 children on my own after my husband died when the children were 7, 9, 14, & 17. I have been anti-abortion all my life. However, the prayers really intensified when my daughter found out they were not able to have children & tried to adopt. They were told that unwed mothers were either aborting the babies or keeping them themselves. So to have two adopted grandsons is a real blessing. Among my favorite pastimes are reading, walking, going out to eat, trying new foods as well as dancing, making scrape books, putting together photo albums & traveling. My favorite singer is Pavarotti, I like all kinds of music except hard rock. My favorite movie is The Passion of Christ. I also like to usher at the Civic center. Three yrs ago I started to search for our ancestors & have found ~100 of them in Poland, Slovakia, Austria & S Africa.
61, Paw Paw, MIThere are several passions in my life. The first is my family. My children have all grown into responsible I hope! and spectacular adults and I am tremendously proud of them. I also have a rather large extended family, so I have no excuse for ever feeling lonely. Another of my passions is teaching children. I have worked in the Early Childhood field for twenty years, and have worked with - and loved - every child who has ever walked through my door. My faith is another, vital, passion. Without it I could not have grown into the woman that I am today. And I hope that it continues to grow and mature in me as long as I need it to (which, of course, will be to the end of my days!

72, Portage, MIHello to you. Lent 2017 is just starting and it feels different to me already. I've agreed to join the Cursillo team for the upcoming 3 day retreat and the initial info meeting has me assigned a presentation (called a Rollo) it amazes me how close I felt to God this past year at my Cursillo. I've decided to step it up and become the best version of myself this lent. I've been widowed longer this year than I was married (25 years). The big question for me is " Does God 's "PLAN" for me include meeting that special person or what? I bet most of us are asking a similar question either to our friends or quietly in our prayers. I have been so blessed with 8 children and a loving and action packed marriage to their mother. I know for fact that my "PLAN" included raising the four at home grow up safely and helping the not at home four get on with their lives. Fifteen grand children later, I often wonder how can it get any better. That's why you get to read this narrative. I think that Gods love for us includes becoming the best version of our selves by sharing our faith by helping others. In return God will enhance our lives more than we can imagine. My future outlook on life has always been positive so I'm prepared for the best. My family has been my focus for many many years and with no one home with me (39 years in the same 1850's home) anymore, I need to start stepping up the ACTION. There are some of my kids that think that Dad will never move, so I need to see if the PLAN differs from that assessment. This isn't really what I expected to discuss, but it's huge on my mind. I'm open currently to suggestions
