Good Things

I received the most beautiful letter from a women who saw me at an awards dinner last month and purchased my book. She is the mother of an extremely ill child and was so very touched by my story, I have been invited to speak at her children’s stroke victim group after the summer. I am so very honored to be asked to speak to this group. These babies, and small children have multiple problems and it seems as if they may spend the rest of their lives with some if not most of them. I told her that by coming to speak...

Sometimes I like to take a moment and sit back and think about what a great family I have. They are all concerned, supportive, loving, caring, and just plain wonderful. I think when you just take a moment out of each and every day to think of what you appreciate about your family and just think of one thing a day, you will be surprised at what you think of.

Sometimes I have to understand I cannot control everything in our families lives. I guess everyone has a point in their lives that they feel overwhelmed with family and want to control what everyone does. Well, why would I think that, ever? I totally am the first one to say that everyone should follow their own path and we cannot make people act or do things because we want or think they should do something a particular way. I must have had a “brain freeze” about that since I think my son should think and do...

New Plans

Trying to work on some new events to raise money for the foundation. I am open to suggestions and look forward to hearing them. In order for the Alesia Shute Foundation to continue to gift books to organizations, we need to raise funds or get sponsors to support the cause. By sharing my words of inspiration with families around the country, I will continue to spread my gift of hope families. Of course everything costs money and with so many charities vying for funding it has become a challenge. If anyone knows...
