I've Got My Wings
Poems and Short Stories That Shaped My Life

I am a storyteller. And my life is my story. It has been full of ups and downs, and twists and turns. And God has brought me through it all, with grace and mercy. Come, share the ride! 

 

All those who have crossed my path, been visitors along the trails, or who have traveled before me, have become fixtures on the canvas of my life. Each experience has been painted on in brilliant colors.

 

There is no order in these pages, no structure, or organization in the layout. Each is its own reflection of that moment in time. Life happens. 

 

I’ve Got My Wings is my gift to help you delight in your own stories. Perhaps you will recognize yourself in these lines. Perhaps you will discover your own wings. I’ve really loved learning how to fly. And oh, what a ride indeed!
