Leaving a Legacy

Recently, I was able to watch this video about a young man named Zach http://www.upworthy.com/this-kid-just-died-what-he-left-behind-is-wondtacular-rip Zach did an awesome job leaving his legacy after finding out that the terminal cancer he had was leaving him months to live. He turned to music. What a wonderful way to say goodbye and have everyone in your world (and thanks to that video, many more) remember you. What do you do? What do you say? How does that feel when you are told that you will not celebrate...

Best Advice

Posted by on Jun 21, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

What should one say or do to help a family who is going through difficult times? For me, this is something I do every day, as my book has been gifted to so many organizations and sold to numerous people for this purpose. My husband and I personally donate or gift money to families, but more important than money is being there for people. Be there to listen but remember to be objective when giving advice. Sometimes people can solve their own issues just by venting, asking questions and taking small pieces of advice...

It was one thing for me to overcome tragedy, but my entire family needed to triumph as well. My siblings, one older brother and a younger sister, were deeply affected by my illness. My brother was troubled as a teen and my sister was being babysat by other families and did not really know what was wrong with me until she read my book. That was so very sad for me to come to terms with as an adult, but my parents tried their best, doing everything they could to help the family as a unit to function. We did seek...

Triumph Over Tragedy

Posted by on Jun 13, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

When I was ill as a child, I really did not dwell on the fact that I might not survive. I did at times think of that but probably because of my age I did not let it work me over all the time. What I did think about is that my parents pushed me to live life to the fullest. At times, they were a bit over-protective of things I wanted to do but soon learned that I was my own person. I would not give up and reflecting back on this, my attitude towards life was to “live it.” When my parents accepted who I...

Volunteer

Posted by on Jun 12, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

When a disaster happens, everyone needs help. They may not think they do, but they do. Although it is nearly impossible for most of us to physically go to Oklahoma and volunteer, there are ways for everyone to be of help. We can send monetary donations through reputable organizations or get involved in food and supply drives that will be sending needed items directly to victims. Remember in the case of Oklahoma, many of these people have lost everything they had, from homes to clothing, toys, food, and all...
