About Me

My name is Pamela. I live in Kansas City, MO, USA. I am a wife to one of the most wonderful men in the world. I am a mother to two children; a boy and a girl. We have two pets; a dog and a cat.

I have two degrees in Social Work. I have worked in public child welfare since I graduated with my Bachelor's degree. My world is jaded because I have spent so much time looking at the ugly side of life.  But I find balance in my world by focusing on the beautiful side of life when I am not working. I love to cook and bake. I scrapbook. I craft. I love my kids and their activities. Filling my life with these warm fuzzy things is how I have been able to stay on the job so long. Plus, I love helping others and watching people grow and develop to the best of their ability!

Life has not always been easy for me. My father passed away in 1998 after a battle with lung cancer. I went through a divorce in 1999 following a hard separation. I was a single mom for eight years before I met and married my second husband. Life certainly through me for a curve ball in 2010 when I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Silly things about me:

  • I love the color PINK.
  • I love to read.  Mostly fiction but occasionally a non-fiction book will catch my interest.
  • I have seen Bon Jovi in concert 10 times in my lifetime.
  • Each year I try to watch every movie nominated for an Academy Awards.
  • I am addicted to Fantasy Football.
  • I love parties. I love to plan parties.
  • I am trying to learn how to take great photographs.
  • I am scared of the water. I have a serious phobia of sticking my head in any type of water.
  • A spider will send me screaming in the opposite direction. (So will snakes!)
  • I love vegetables. Beets use to be the only veggie I would not eat, but recently I have been trying them and I am liking them.

I am sure there is a ton more I can say about myself, but that is all I can think of at this time. The rest will reveal itself in my blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
