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!

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!

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.

In keeping in step with this political season, here's an article will warm hearts (hopefully) on either side!

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!

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!

Please excuse my lack of blogging over these past few weeks. These “lazy, crazy days of summer” have gotten away from me, I think. The month of July was a busy one! I’m still working out kinks of my new computer, but it is wonderful all the same. Of course, I made my yearly pilgrimage to the beach a few weeks ago and then made a quick trip to New York last week. Both were really great times. Whew, I think I’m still trying to catch my breath!
All in all, this has been a great summer for me so far, filled with laughter and good times. I can only hope that yours is as bright as mine. I think I’m done being a world traveler for now. I’m back, folks!
See you next week.
