Life as I see it…

It’s been a while since I’ve written a column in Colusa County. Of course, some of you may remember “Thoughts I’ve Had. . .” that I wrote for a few years for another paper. I’ve missed doing it, so when Lloyd offered up this opportunity, I decided to take him up on it.

Life has changed for me since I moved home to Grimes after living in North Dakota for many years.

Just to remind you of whom I am; I was Kathy Bowden when I was growing up in Colusa County. I married, eventually moved to North Dakota where we raised three children. Fifteen years ago my husband David passed, and I decided to move back to Colusa County.

I’ve been a journalist for a number of papers over the years, but about 10 years ago I opened in Colusa, Kathy Craigo Media Consulting. Along the way I’ve added public speaking and life coaching to the public relations services I offer. I feel like the years have helped me to grow personally and professionally, and I’m very thankful to everyone who has helped me along the way.

I have been blessed in my life. Although there has been a long list of challenges, trials and sad events in my life, I have always survived. God has helped me with each step I take, and He has blessed me beyond my expectations.

My kids and grandkids are all healthy, happy and productive. I have wonderful clients, and just recently I have become engaged to a wonderful man.

Funny thing; I never wanted to remarry, but when I met Tom I changed my mind.

If you read this column going forward, you will see that I am a woman of faith and that I firmly believe God has a plan for us. If you know me; you know that I am walking, living proof that I’m right.

My readers won’t always agree with what I write, but that is the beauty of living in a country with the freedoms we are given.

Isn’t it wonderful that I have the right to share my thoughts and that you have the right to agree or disagree with me?

Life is good today.
