Hello. My name is Brenda. I live in the United States of America. I am 50 years old. I have been married 26 years. I have raised my 5 children to adulthood, which is one of my greatest accomplishments in my life. They all are great people and I am so proud. I had to quit work 5 years ago because of 2 back surgeries that left me disabled. I am in chronic pain all the time. I am an avid book reader now, since I mostly sit and lie around all day. I play on the computer, which has led me here to this site. I met someone who is now a great friend. I want to learn to read and speak his language of Hindi. One thing now on my bucket list is to visit the Himalayas. Any and all help in reaching my new goal is greatly appreciated. I will also help any of you to the best of my ability. I am so excited to begin this new journey in my life!!
