How My Book and Foundation Came to Be

A little over a week after my event, I sit by my computer and organize my thoughts. I still think back to first having the desire to write my own book. I had tinkered with this idea for years but after we sold all three of our businesses, I suddenly had lots of time on my hands and my son was sailing through high school!  I remembered being home one snowy day with my lab by my side and the television on. My husband was out of town on a new business venture and called to ask what I was doing. I told...

The Crazy Weather

The more I think about it, the more I realize when someone came up with the phrase winter’s fury, she meant it!  I struggle with the same questions year in and year out. Why are some winters so very mild and others so very abusive? Why does it snow so much some years and others hardly at all? Why are summers hot, humid, sometimes rainy and sometimes dry? Are there even scientific answers to these questions? Is mother nature really in control or are we destined never to find out? Are we causing the...

“My” Year of You

It must be MY year of you! When we planned this year to listen to everyone tell us their stories and then respond, I thought it would not be about me at all. However, I have a story that seems to fit into this in an odd way. While I was checking out in the supermarket today, the young man behind the register said, “I decided to ask everyone this question today and see what they would answer. If you were a superhero and had one wish, what would your super power be?” Now what are the chances he...

Year of You – Love for Logan

This guest post is from Marie about her grandson Logan. Logan and his family have been supporters of The Alesia Shute Foundation and we are thankful that Marie has shared his story. We are excited to meet Logan at the 2014 Evening of Inspiration! When Logan was 14 months old a brain tumor was discovered. Once removed Logan was left with left-sided weakness, no peripheral vision on his left side and he walks with a limp. Logan along with his parents and community volunteers worked very hard on physical &...

My 5th Year

I cannot believe I have been an author for five years now, along with running my own foundation, speaking engagements, and meeting many families with ill children. It has been keeping me very busy, and it is ongoing work that will never run out. My reward is sharing my book, my words, and my life with complete strangers who slowly or instantly become friends via email, social media, or just plain old human contact. Yes, human contact…amazing that it still exists, isn’t it? After five years, it...
