I want to know You! Introduce yourself. ☺

I write because I believe we all have a story to tell. When we share our stories and experiences we can strengthen each other and possibly learn a little something from each other. I am all about always growing beyond what you are now. Share with me your story. I would like to get to know all of you and build relationships.

    Hi!
    I am a wife and mother. I used to be a chaplain for hospice, volunteer. I used to be a professional waterskier.now I spend my time trying to find beauty and joy when I am stuck with chronic pain from this muscle disease.

    1. Nice to meet you! Thankyou for responding. Wow a chaplain and a waterskier! There is so much beauty and joy to be found even if your conditions aren’t very favorable. Now if we could get everybody on board with finding that. I used to work in radiology at the hospital until I got really sick. Now I visit the nursing home here in town and help bring church to them. I play guitar when my hands don’t hurt. I am a wife and mother of two, a 14 year old girl and a 10 year old boy. I fight off Lupus and other autoimmune diseases daily but I try to find the positive side no matter what cards were dealt to me.

        That is wonderful that you do that in the nursing home! I love that! I used to sing to them at night. Take them for walks during the day. They were so trapped in that nursing home and I hated it for them all.
        Having children makes having a chronic illness difficult. I have found I want to be something I cannot be so I have to be ok with what I am and know I’m doing my best. Thank you for sharing! Finding positive is harder some days than others but at least we are trying!

        1. I agree, it’s difficult having chronic illness with children. My kids are super heros in my book, too often we forget our illness not only affects us, but it affects our kids and spouse. I push a lot more than I should, but helping the nursing home gives me more purpose to my own life. It makes me feel like I have made a difference somehow. I go in there knowing this may be the last time I see my regular residents, I may be the last words they hear. Even though I am sick myself, I know a lot of them are lonely and ill and I give what I can even if it’s a prayer or a smile. It definitely is hard at times to find the positive some days, but we’re human. We are allowed a bad day or two or….three. ☺ as long as don’t get stuck there.

            What a blessing you are giving. A true true blessing. If the last word is by you, a person willing to share unconditional love to a stranger then they will know what real love is. You are making a difference.
