Am I Here Yet? Is the author’s personal story from childhood into her post-retirement years -- or as she calls them, her realignment years. It is the tale of a shy teenager growing into a confident woman who believes she can do and have it all: husband, children, community and business leader, but finds, in the end that the ‘all’ really isn’t what she longs for. It is a story all too familiar to ‘type A’ women who struggle with the push-pull of their professional and domestic lives. Her journey covers marriage, parenting, divorce, remarriage, and a spiritual path that leaves behind organized church life and embarks on a quest of searching that continues today. Many will find a connection with the pain and joy of the author’s teenage years only to be re-experienced through the lives of her children as they work their way through the maze of adolescence to adulthood. Others may recognize themselves as the lone woman on the “boy’s club” boards and committees and the intense need to be the best, to know the most, and to always land on top. It is the story of many of us.
