About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.

Breathing

For several years now my life has been little more than epic peaks and valleys with portions of peace coming at the oddest times, and, usually, when needed most.  “If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at … Continue reading
