Summer Inspiration

Wow, the summer has crept away without a single post from yours truly.  I must be getting old and forgetful— lame excuses for not blogging, I know!  Hopefully, you're enjoying these long summer days.  I know that I am—fleeting as though they may seem. 

Today, I wanted to post a blog from a contributing writer to Penn Central Parent.  Although I'm not a parent of a special needs child, I thought that the piece was really compelling and demonstrates the challenges that those who have Cerebral Palsy may face.  It was refreshing to me that a parent gave a voice to some of the trials we who have disabilities cope with. I hope you enjoy reading the blog as much as I did.

Have a great weekend, all!

A Girl After My Heart

If you don't already know, I'm a huge fan of any kind of art.  While I was perusing the web today, I found this and wanted to share it with you.  I hope that you enjoy it.

Have a great weekend!

Finding Inspiration

I saw this on the news a few nights ago and knew that I wanted to include this story with this week's post.  It proves once again that we can accomplish anything once we are determined to do something.  Hopefully, you will find as much inspiration from this story as much as I did!

Have a good weekend, everyone!

The Best Is Yet To Come


I know it's been quite a while since I've blogged, and I whole-heartedly apologize for that.  I must say that it has been an amazing start to 2017.  In March, I became the proud recipient of the Parenting Media Association's Gold Award for my article featured in Central Penn Parent's Capabilities magazine published last fall—the highest award possible for the publication.  I was so thrilled at this honor that it's still hard to believe!  If you haven't read it, I posted it a couple of months ago.

This week, I spoke in front of a class at Messiah that one of my good friend teaches who also has Cerebral Palsy.  The class is entitled, Disability and Society.  (What a name!)  As I began my presentation, I looked over the small gathering of faces, eagerly awaiting the start of my speech.  I was suddenly struck by the magnitude of the impact I had on the students.  Like I said to my friend, what an awesome group.  It did my old heart really well.  Hehe!

In the past few months, I've been awed at the outpouring of support, encouragement, and overall love I've received.  As I celebrate another birthday next week, I realize the best is yet to come.  I can't wait to see what happens next!

Thank you all!

Winter Wheat

As I think back on the events of this week, I'm reminded of a quote by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who was part of the women's movement and one of my all-time favorite people in history.  In my mind, it applies to the circumstances we find ourselves in this week.  I found comfort in these words and they definitely resonated with my feelings as I tried to find the silver lining in my true sadness about the election.  She said, "“We are sowing winter wheat, which the coming spring will see sprout and which other hands than ours will reap and enjoy.”

Have a good weekend, everyone.

A Quick Post

Just a quick post to tell my readers that I'm going out of town next weekend, so I will not be blogging next Friday.  Thanks to all who read my posts and my latest article for The Capabilities magazine.  As you know, your support means a lot!

Have a good two weeks!

Celebrate With Me

I just realized I haven't posted here for over a month.  My bad!  With the fabulous advent of a new computer and busy days, time seems to have gotten away from me.  Needless to say, this week has especially been uplifting because the first article that I wrote for the Capabilities magazine (Central Penn Parent) was published!  As a writer,nothing compares to seeing your name in print.  I must say the outpouring of support and plaudits are overwhelming!  I re-posting it in my blog in case those who haven't read my article can.  Feel free to comment. 

Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!
