My name is Linda M Johnson, born and raised in Southern California. My passion for writing began as a means for me to figure out life. It was merely a way to understand certain situations that I never quite understood growing up. Although I still don’t quite understand it all, I have experienced a diversity of situations in family, motherhood, being a grandmother, friendships, and personal relationships which I have learned and continue to learn from. If you’re struggling to understand that special woman in your life, I hope this will help. It took me many years to understand what was meant when someone says to love you first. My understanding of that is the same love you give to others, give it to yourself first.
