The Desert amazes me

After 23 years in Minnesota and learning to deal with -25 and wind chill of 50 below plus 90 inches of snow , ice and 5 months of no green I am amazed at the beauty of the desert!  Everything adapts to the area it lives.

 I hope to bring a friendly smile a listening ear and a solution for those folks who feel the drape of a winter's day covering their lives due to financial stress because of illness and or accident. just like the desert has warmed my heart and life I am available to help you work thru your winter season.
