About Kim Rodrigues

Bloggers Photo

I was born in Buffalo, New York and raised in the Hudson Valley. After graduating from High School, with just one year of college, I joined the Navy. Joining the military was good for me and broadened my horizons as a couple aunts used to say that I was sheltered as a child. I can relate to the forgotten shy child. I met my husband in the Navy. We have 3 children and 6   grandchildren. In midlife, I worked at a school for 15 years as a preschool asst and afterschool director, then at the library for 5 years. I continued to grow and mature, stepped outside my comfort zone. I am a born again Christian and love to write poetry. I am thankful for PS that has helped my writing immensely! I am retired now and have a bit more time to write and read many poets on this site and invite you to read mine too. God bless you!

My thanks to you Kim, because your contest inspired me to write a very cathartic poem about my late husband who passed away July 29th exactly two years ago. I was very happy to receive Ninth place in your Contest. My congratulations to all the winners. There were some really awesome entries and I can tell it must have been terribly difficult choosing the winners. Blessings, Connie xxoo
