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.

ALS Awareness Month

May is ALS Awareness Month in U.S. and June in Canada.
I grieve for my PALS living with ALS and the many I met online who brightened my life for a brief time and then were taken by this disease that shows no mercy.
Some are so young and have children who struggle to understand their impending loss. Some are elderly and have difficulty managing any electronic devices to compensate for loss of speech and mobility. Regardless of age, it is an ongoing struggle.
Please talk to others about Lou Gehrig's Disease /ALS and support the 40,000+ living with this disease in North America. Donate to your local chapter and/or walk in one of the many Walks for ALS.
We need your support. We need a cure.

love you, karyn! i know we haven't done a face-to-face and probably never will, (although i'd love to) but i still feel like i know you and i really care about you. my daughter and i pray for you every day. that God would bless your life, help you live it to its fullest, that He would make everything available that would help make things easier for you, and that He would help bring about a cure for this awful disease. so just know that you are loved and prayed for here in Florida. every.day. (and i'm stalking your page, catching up on all the posts i've missed :D)
