This is one of my favorite scenes from Something's Gotta Give. Diane Keaton who is in the middle of tears, is writing a new screen play. Although she is grief stricken she begins a new script. That's the way I feel right now. Although I miss the family, I know that I need to keep on keep'n on. I need to find my new script.
"Who am I?"
Being a mother has been my identity for so long, and before moving to North Carolina, being a Grandmother was beginning to be my new identity. It's the most joyful role I have played.

Now at 66 years old, how does one create a business plan, get excited about things that just don't seem as important as raising a family?
Frankly, I have put off the inevitable stage that a move requires. Reinventing myself. So, this year I will spend time adding new challenges and experiences that will help me to reinvent myself.
I don't want to waste time, after all change always comes bearing gifts.
