PostSubject: Seventy-five and Seeking   Wed Jan 16, 2013 7:24 pm

I am seventy-five years old and a widow of three years. I live alone and spend most of my time reading, writing, crocheting, and sewing. I was married 54 years to my first and only love and I still miss him dearly. He was my high school sweetheart, a coach, a teacher, and a minister so my life has had a varied existence over the 60 plus years that we were together. I have three grown children, ten grandchildren and six great-grandchildren which now have become my reason for living. I have been a journal writer most of my life. Most of my short story writing and poems are about our life together. I have written a book called “A Book of Stories” -- Stories of the Love and Life of Hoyt and Doris Hammock which is a compilation of short stories of our life. “Doris” is my nick- name. I started writing the book after my husband died mostly for my children and grandchildren as a heritage or legacy to pass on to future generations. I have been a Christian since I was eight years old; there have been ups and downs during the years but never once have I ever wanted to engage in worldly affairs. My son is self publishing the book for our family. I may never publish any of my stories but when I came upon this web site it excited me that there are others like me that want to tell their stories. During my working years I was employed at AT&T as a manager; my duties consisted of checking grammar, formatting, rewriting and researching for my supervisor’s articles and letters; I’ve been retired since October, 1991. I am seeking God's new directions and purpose for my life.

Humor: My mind works like lightning, one brilliant flash and then it’s gone again.

Hello Doris,
Love the humor and I'm delighted that you joined us here at Christian Creative Writers. Before creating CCW, I often wished there was a website to go to where there were other Christian writers who loved the Lord and who I could feel comfortable sharing my work with. Since I couldn't really find anything like that, I made one, LOL. I hope you share some of the stories and poetry about you and your beloved husband with us. I so enjoy hearing about a person's history. I'm so sorry for your loss. One day you and your husband will be back together in the very presence of the Lord rejoicing. What a glorious day that will be, but in the meanwhile, I'm certain the Lord has some interesting things for you to do.

Lora, Thanks for the note, I do plan to share my writing with CCW members; you'll be hearing from me soon. I'm still learning how to use the web site, but I do plan to post "The Mother I Never Knew" right away. God's Blessings on this snowy day. Doris
