Hi! My name is Becky Wester. I was conceived, born, raised, and currently live in the mountains of East Tennessee. I specifically live in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA. Knoxville is a city on the Tennessee River where around 200,000 people call home. Located at the base of the great Smoky Mountains, this paradise offers 4 distinct seasons and one photo opportunity after another.
While Knoxville is my home where I live, "Random Thoughts and Daily Blessings" is my cyber home. I moved into here, so to speak. to have a presence on the internet which allows me to express myself concerning various subjects and opinions via my blog. I may write about my baby dogs one day and the next express concern regarding the fires in California.
I love to write and do so as often as I can. I will never, however, be able to "put pen to paper" to write a book. My ability to focus on one thing at a time is limited. Through a blog, however, I can jump around different subject matters from one day to the next and never get tired of what I am writing about.
As of October 2018, I will be 67 years old. That just doesn't seem real to me, but it is the truth. Of those 67 years I have spent something like 60 of them as a preacher's daughter. That little fact, in and of itself, is interesting and will the subject of some of my blog posts from time to time.
I spent over 32 years of my life working in the field of juvenile justice. My initial goal was to save the world, but I ended up only being able to accomplish an occasional adjustment to a young life. Working with juvenile delinquents is a very challenging but often rewarding job. Those years were filled with writing material and will also receive notable mention in my blog.
I was married to a Knox County deputy for nearly 25 years. Ours was a good marriage for many years that ended in divorce due to life happenings. He died two years after our divorce. Even though I was the one that ended our marriage, I continue to love him to this day. My marriage to a police officer, Jeeper, amateur radio operator, and computer wizard will be the focus of many of my blog posts.
So, kick back and let's get started. I am ready to write and I hope you are ready to read. This is going to be a blast.
Here's to the journey,
