CHOOSE YOUR OWN AFTER PODCAST
Episode 10 – October 28, 2021 – Full of fiery passion and not afraid to speak her mind, this American now settled in Canuck-land is gracious with sharing her stories that illustrate her most profound moments of growth. Having just turned 64, Deb has learned a lot on her journey to the new life she is now creating for herself: the culture shock of a move from the US to Canada, dealing with fertility issues, divorce after a 35 year marriage, a painful disconnect with loved ones, and finally, finding unconditional love again. We touch on themes like faith, starting over, sports and the arts. Like her writing on our Willowjak blog, we’ve seen and heard her colourful use of language and many musical references and as is written in her own words “here comes the new generation of old ladies, and we’re comin’ in hot.”
Here is a little clip:

I’m trying my best to pay it forward by dealing hope and sharing stories & tips on caregiving and how to survive hard things. I blog a lot about single parenting my adult twin sons who both have autism, and the challenges we face in surviving the everyday challenges and planning for a future full of unknowns.
You’re totally right! We do need to get together!!! Great listen, you have an awesome outlook!
