Hi, my name is Miriam Hurdle. I am a Christian, a wife, a mother, an educator, an administrator, and a rehabilitation counselor. I got my masters degrees in Education, Counseling, and Administration in Education. I went on to get my Ed.D. in Educational Leadership.
I like writing, reading, meditating, gardening, watercolor painting, drawing, exercising, swimming, and doing yoga.
My husband and I like to travel. We have major and mini vacations for 17 years. I love to take photos. Blogging is a good place for me to share everything I love doing. Hope you will enjoy reading.
Now I would like to expound on certain elements:
I am a Christian. I became a Christian was a teenager when my parents were still Buddhists. Some of my siblings became Christians years later. We all prayed for our parents, and they became Christians 20 years later. I cried when my dad sent me the pictures of the baptism.
I am a wife to a wonderful, adventuresome husband. He is a helicopter pilot. He likes to ride dirt bike, motor cycle, mountain bike, and diving. After we got married, he gave up flying helicopter and riding dirt bike because he didn’t want to worry about the chances. After the last diving trip in North Carolina in 2005, he made his deepest dive, he said, “I got my experience.” Then he pretty much quit. As far as his motorcycle, it is not safe to drive on the freeway and busy street anymore. We paid the insurance but he hardly took it out on the street. He finally sold the motorcycle. Now he rides his mountain bike every week. We live in a city, but many bike trails, walk trails, and horse trial are winding through the city and neighborhood. He also runs and goes to the gym regularly.
I have one daughter. She is married and lives in Portland, Oregon. She is also very adventuresome. Along with her husband Will, they do kayaking, camping, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, hiking, and more. They did backpacking throughout the Europe for three months the summer they graduated in 2007.
