About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

Just a Note

Made these rosettes for my Christmas ornament exchange.  I just arranged them like this for the picture.  Sorry it didn't turn out so well.

Going to run errands today and hopefully take Mom our for lunch!  She got her hair cut, SHORT!  I will have to take a pic.  It is cute.

what did you make them from?



I want to go to New Orleans! It's on my bucket list! Fun time!
Your rosettes are sweet and a nice gift.
BSF is Bible Study Fellowship that is world wide for anyone/everyone! There is probably some in your area. It's a wonderful study of the Bible! If you want more information, email me or you can go on line to bsfinternational.org
