Welcome to my blog. I have had ALS for 10 years now.

Since I started this blog in June 2008 I've had amazing feedback. Family, friends, people from all over North America, Australia, Scotland, England, and places I can't recall, have commented, encouraged and corresponded. I had no idea when Cynthia taught me how to set this up, how much I would love posting and how many people would read it. I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has helped propel this therapeutic exercise into a daily routine. All of you, both friends and visitors, are now part of my blog family. Welcome.

hahaha! too true indeed!
sorry to have been so absent. two friends and i have been working on some books. one lady lives in germany, the other in italy, and me in the united states. we actually published our first book - it came out sept 25th and it was the #1 New Hot Release on amazon for 30 days. it has been crazy. we didn't know if anyone would even care about the book, so it has been such a fun time. the book is called Tangle It! Journal, it is an art/drawing book. i did most of the artwork. one of the other ladies made it into a book and the second lady is our marketing brain. we are working on our second book which we hope to publish in about a week and a half. my blog is languishing, and i don't get a chance to enjoy my blogs and reading like i wish to. i think i am going to take a break after christmas and try to get back to being in touch with people. so that is my apology and my explanation about where i've been. i always enjoy coming to your blog to see what you are up to and look at all the cool pictures. praying for you every day. praying for your caretakers and all the people who love you and help you. blessings, dear friend. i hope you have a wonderful week. <3

haha! thanks, we are almost done with the second book. proofreading phase now. hopefully it will be out in another week. we got a little too ambitious with this one and it is taking us longer. i wish for a simpler life with fewer obligations. maybe one day. take care and have a great weekend <3
