Skills I am grateful to have
There are many things I wish I could do, and I will keep learning to do some, and work on conquering my fears about doing others. There are a few things that I am very thankful I can do. Here are my top ten.
Jennifer BonnI am passionate about running, parenting, education, and self-help information. I enjoy writing articles that will offer readers the information needed to help them in some way. I recently retired from teaching French and Spanish for forty years. I run every day and have done all kinds of races from 5ks to ultra-marathons. I have three children and three grandchildren. I write for several magazines in my area, I am a contributor and in charge of the Pinterest board for a parenting magazine called Screamin Mamas, and I have a second book about to be released through Loving, Healing Press called 101 Tips to Ease Your Burdens.
