About Me

CaptureHello Friends, thank you so much for taking the time to stop by.  I hope you will come back and come often!  As I’m sure you’ve already discovered my name is Dianne Gill.  I am southern as beans and cornbread (don’t judge).  I was born and raised in beautiful sunny Florida.  That’s my roots!   I now live in the mountains of E Tennessee where I have always dreamt of retiring and by God’s grace I got here early.  Though many believe I am a local here, I actually brought this accent with me, Y’all.

I have worked from home for 5+ years now and my profession is in food safety.  Working from home has been quite an adjustment for me.  As you will soon learn I am quite the social butterfly.  I am a mother to Joey (an angel now) and I share my life with my loving husband, Paul and my two dogs, Cooper and Jake.  Paul’s two adult children and their spouses (who I adore) make up our precious Florida family.  The best part (no offense kids) is that we have three grandchildren (EEK) and two grand-dogs in Florida too!  Every year we load up the motor coach and head to Florida for a week or so and love on some babies (most times we bring them home with us)!  I am a big believer in Jesus as well as Essential Oils and all that they both can do for us!

You know, I have had a lot of tragedy in my life and while that is certainly painful I have had to make a conscious decision to not let it end me.  While walking through it we have to try to grow from it, use it somehow to make us better people and also to help those around us.  I consider this blogging venture part of my healing.  I believe the reason God gave me a social personality and compassion for others is because he knew I would need it to get by in this world.  I get fueled by being around people, caring and sharing with them…..I love people!  There is life after loss my dear friends although sometimes we can’t see it through the pain.  I am certainly no psychologist but just a momma whose walked through the unimaginable…….and albeit some days, barely, I am still standing.  My prayer is that I can be a source of hope, comfort, support and friendship to you and all who enter.  God bless.

  4. Dear Dianne,
    I would first like to wish your true angel Joey a heavenly Happy Birthday. I read and write this with tears in my eyes. The words you wrote take us on a journey most many have not experienced. It is unfortunate that I did not get to meet this incredible young man and I know he is incredible because of the beautiful person you are. As I have mentioned before, we are so blessed to have you in our family. You touch lives in such a positive way. Praying for you always and your journey. ❤️😇
