I am The Luckiest Wife n Mother of the Most Fantastic Loving Husband & the Most Caring, Loving & Strong Daughter!!! I enjoy crochet, spinning, rake/loom knitting, needle felting, Navajo Weaving, All weaving actually, Reading-when I can, and spending time with my family!
I've just finished, in November 2010, teaching A Super and Fun Group of Young Women how to Crochet, and we are going to start up the very First CGOA Crochet Guild in our County, Berks, in Pennsylvania.
I have a post surgical, active, Chiari Malformation of the Brain. I'm already living on borrowed time, as the docs cannot figure out how someone in my condition can be walking, functioning and Alive this long with the extreme damage to my Spinal Cord-no not the bones-the big nerve down the middle of the bones...
I'm in constant chronic pain, but I cannot let that stop me, because I'm not done with life, or learning. I love making new friends, on line, in person, which ever. I've never cried or moaned and groaned about my condition, as none of that will help and I truly feel blessed to still be here with my family-the three of us, plus two cocatiels, Lovey & Thurston (better known as "What the heck are you doing now?" & "Will you Please stop that!", a 2.5+yrs old affenspinscher pup, Ruby-who's sleeping on the computer desk if I'm sitting at it, and our newest addition a pure white kitty with one blue eye and one hazel green eye, named Gemma-but I'm not her mommy, our daughter is.
We are poor, but not "dirt poor". My Honey is a wiz with keeping the bills in line... We are living very simply, but the only debt we have is the house, so I guess we're doing better in this economy than a lot of folks.
I love life, people, animals, children-all ages, learning, time with my Honey alone, time with my daughter-now that we're more like friends :), and getting to at least talk to my friends either by PC or phone/texting.
I pray 5 times a day for many, many people. I believe in God, and that he's watching over us and protecting us from anything that we cannot handle. I am THE LUCKIEST CRIPPLE EVER. I would like to start my own blog, but am afraid that no one would ever look at it...?? Ahhh, Insecurity, it was bred into me..lol..
