So, I have been wanting to start a blog/vlog for over two years now! Since I am a PROCRASTINATING PERFECTIONIST (can anyone relate?), I have not done it. My ultimate purpose is to share my story and adventures, my ups and down, my challenges and successes to those of you who need encouragement (as we all do from time to time).
I am going to start with a short intro for now:
I am a young (all relative, right?) woman with 6 children and 13 grandchildren. A few years ago, about 35 or so, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. At the time, I had given birth to the last of my 6 children. My youngest son was only a year old. Shortly after I was diagnosed, I had a very severe flare-up, was in the hospital for 6 weeks, and I was told I would never regain the use of my legs. After I cried all night, my brave self kicked in, and a force I never knew I possessed said “NOOOOO!” The rest, as they say, is history.
I have had an INCREDIBLE life, done things I never expected to do, in good health or not, and I plan to continue. I just want you to know that SO MUCH is possible, despite what your brain may be telling you.
My desire is to share my journey with you, what I have done despite many obstacles, and to be of encouragement in any way I can. I have gone from utter hopelessness and helplessness (more than once) to a life full of challenges, fun, and blessings.
