“Me about Me”


Description from Lady425 aka Beth: First, I value freedom. Freedom to do what I want, when I want and how I want. I've watched over the years how people in other countries are treated, especially women, and find myself grateful of where I have been fortunate enough to live my life.
My favorite place to live would be somewhere sunny and warm, preferably near some type of water. I hate being cold.
I adore and cherish all animals and birds. I love being outside and experiencing nature. My pet of choice is a dog - med size. I have been lucky to have had some wonderful companions in my life - dogs that is (lol).
My favorite holiday is Christmas (as some of you may remember by the # of picks I did! LOL I work on X-mas pick all year!
Nine years ago my life was shattered and my heart broken when my husband of 18 years told me that he wasn't in love with me anymore. That led to divorce and my falling into a deep dark pit. It took a very long time to piece my heart back together.
Shortly after that, and 3 failed operations, I was diagnosed with Disk Degenerative Disease (non curable). I face each day in cronic back pain only managable by strong narcotics.
I now live in MD with my partner, Randall, and together we face life's challenges. I spend a great deal of time working on or learing more about beading. It is my passion.
I consider myself very spiritual, but have no definate affiliation with any religion.

    I’m sorry you’ve been through so much, but glad you’ve found a new path, and that beading gives you such pleasure. Art can do so much to lift the spirits–I know I’ve used it that way. Thanks for telling us about yourself and for this lovely pick. You’ve included a lot of my favorites!

    Went through that divorce thing nearly 40 years ago and still remember the shock and black pit that followed – - but in retrospect it was the start of a new and much better life for me. Sounds like you have made a new life, too. Sorry to hear about your pain – - have experienced pretty intense bouts, but nothing chronic. Glad you’ve made it through so much and found a fun “escape” though beads – - aren’t they a fabulous way to lose yourself ???

    Beth, what a moving story of your life. I am happy you shared with us, and that you have a new companion with Randall. My girl Dixie has the same disk disease, and some days are hard. Thank goodness for beading and our friends. Be well!

    It is amazing what a human body and mind can put up with; but what is even more amazing is how we find things that help us cope! Pets, art, beading and especially other persons that can relate and empathize and offer acceptance!
    Beth, you have come so far! And you have such a positive influence on people!! :)
