Please pray for the West Virginia coal miners and their families. My heart breaks for the families who lost loved ones in yesterday's tragic explosion. I have so much respect for the underground miners who risk their lives everyday to provide a better life for their families. My thoughts and prayers are with the miners & their families during this terrible time.
I am a family nurse practitioner, living and working in rural Southeastern Kentucky. In May of 2006, I married my best friend. He makes me laugh everyday and reminds me to not take life so seriously. I love living in Kentucky, enjoying four seasons, southern cuisine, sweet tea, and SEC football/basketball. I am a strong supporter of the coal industry, which helped build Southeastern Kentucky. I am very interested in politics, current events, finance/investment, and celebrity gossip. I also love anything involving water, beaches, sun, and Jimmy Buffett. Prior to meeting my husband, I often said I was looking for a 65 year old, retired man with a sailboat, who could play guitar. However, I am completely content to have a 34 year old husband with a houseboat. I thank God everyday for a wonderful life.
