About

I’m Debbie from Washington State.   Mom to nine kids most of whom are out on their own but we still have a few stragglers.  Life takes on a whole different perspective when you finally find yourself with “time.”  Time to go places and do things that don’t involve kids!  Of course, with this new-found time, comes decisions.  What exactly do you want to do, where do you want to  go.  Now that can be a dilemma when the past 34+ years you’ve been wrapped up in parenting and making decisions based on the family.  This blog is my journey, it’s my re-birth.  It’s my opportunity to find the me of yesteryear, to re-discover my talents and gifts, and to sprinkle in a healthy portion of magical dreams and outrageous behavior.

      I’ve been absent this past year — so much going on in life — but I’m ready to resume. Glad you enjoyed my blog. Thanks for taking the time to post.

    I am glad to have found your blog (I check out the freshly pressed from time to time – congrads!). I am currently a stay at home mom with 2 kids, both boys and somedays, like today, it feels like a lot more than 2. I am looking forward to reading more about your “re-birth”. While I love raising my kiddos it is nice to dream of what is to come, when there is more me time, and hopefully more traveling in my future. I will be checking back to learn more about Costa Rica!

        Hi there – just wanted to let you know that comment from Nov 3rd was not left by me (Shoes). Carol Newman, or whoever that person is, copied my previous comment and when you click on their name it takes you to some random diesel car website. Crazy!!!
        On another note, I very much enjoy your blogging and am glad you are enjoying mine. 🙂

      Don’t despair — there is indeed life without kids. Now that is funny coming from a woman who still has four kids at home!!! HA HA I guess what I am saying is that I DO see an end to the tunnel. BTW, I really enjoyed reading your blog and look forward to keeping updated.

    Hola, Debbie 🙂 We will be in PV next month, so haven’t made it quite yet. We did spend a week in Washington State doing our volunteer training, though. Please feel free to email me, if you get a chance!

    I am so excited (as is my family!) to find your blog. We will be in the Puerto Viejo area at the end of summer and were hoping to meet with Don Candido Morales while there, as well as spend a few days with with the BriBri in their village. We hope to spend more time in the area in the future. I see you are from Washington and we are headed up there later this week to do some volunteer training to learn to make biosand water filters (which provide a sustainable, low cost solution for safe water that can save lives in areas that need it). We plan to use our new skills to help in Central America. We look forward to reading more of your writing!

      Deborah, I’m sure you will enjoy meeting Candido. I have great respect for him and his son, Enrique. Good luck with your work!
      Debbie

        Just wondering if you’ve made it to PV yet. Tell them hi from Bruce, Debbie, Tim and Kayla. Only been home 2 weeks and miss it already.

      Annelie,
      Don Candido Morales is in Hone Creek, near Puerto Viejo. You can contact him via his son, Enrique Morales at naturalcaribe@ymail.com Candido would be very glad to meet with you. He is an amazing man and healer. Currently he is treating a friend’s wife who lives here in Washington State. After my son’s healing experience, they decided to go down for treatment and will be there for 7 months. Thank you for your interest and be sure to tell Candido that Debbie and Timoteo sent you!!

  7. Hi Debbie,
    I was curious about your website and thought I’d take a look. I want to en-Courage you and support you in your quest in this next phase of your life. I’m thrilled that you have started this blog, and I’m happy that you are a cancer survivor.
    Truly, all the best,
    Akaisha
