Jemma's Tales

A little bit about Jemma and Her Blog

February 08, 2013
Welcome to Jemma's !  I am so thankful to have you- my dear followers! 

Having you follow along means so much to me.

I am really going to do my best to share with you the good, maybe some of the bad and hopefully 

not a lot of the ugly!

A little bit about me.  I grew up on a wonderful wheat and potato farm in Thornton, Idaho.

 I was born to Marjorie and Harold Ward on August 31, 1956. 

 I LOVED growing up in the country and I feel as though I was very blessed!  

I had a beautiful sister who was 14 years older than me, she died

in 1977 in a boating accident on Puget Sound.

I have lived my life with zest and zeal-I have made my share of mistakes. 

Some big and some small.  But through it all I have always had my faith.

I love with all of my heart-always. 

Two of the very best things that I have done with my life is to be a really great daughter and a 

really loving, devoted, and compassionate Mother.( I have 4 children, and  6 grandchildren.)

My dear husband has 4 children of his own, 3 grandchildren- so combined we have 8 children and 

9 grandchildren.

The Holidays at our home bring my more joy than I  could ever imagine-hectic, beautiful and full

of love.

I am a cancer survivor and it changed my life-for the better.

I take not one moment for granted.  I love passionately, forgive easily and trust completely.

When I decided  to blog, my top priority was to create content that was meaningful, informational, 

inspirational and interesting for you and for me. 

You will find crafting ideas, great recipes, gardening tips, some fashion fun and a series dedicated

to the process of aging with style.

If you have any questions, interests, concerns, or comments  I am 

here for you!

Thank you once again for being part of my life!
