Storytelling: Meet Jill Wilson

jill_wilsonName & Occupation: Jill Wilson, retired teacher

Who are the last three people you called/texted? What’s their significance in your life?
Julie is my daughter and the mother of two out of five of my grandchildren.
Jean is my younger and only sister. She and I share a beginning. She has known me the longest!
Leanne is my daughter in law. Also the mother of two more of my five grandchildren.
I have one more person, which I know makes 4, but that would be my son Jonathan who called me today! The father of my 5th grandchild.

What was a lesson you learned this week? I have been in Florida these last 3 weeks and the lesson I have learned is that I can be content doing almost nothing for that long!! I am always in motion at home and happy to be . But it is possible for me to be still and enjoy it!!

What are you most looking forward to in the summer? Spending some more time with my precious grandchildren! They are growing so fast and while they still like being with us I want to enjoy them!!

If you could could have any superpower, what would it be? My super power might be the ability to have all of our children and grandchildren together for an extended period of time with no work pressures. Everyone would be relaxed and happy.

If you could switch lives with one person for the day, who would it be? I really wouldn’t want to be anyone else even for one day. My life isn’t perfect but it is mine. I feel like I know where I am going just not sure how it will all end.

What’s your favorite part of your home? My very comfortable bed and bedroom where I live to read each night before I go to sleep! I look forward to this part of the day!!

What’s your favorite day of the week? Why? I still love Fridays even tho I am retired from teaching. It always feels like date night!!
