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.

Happy New Year!

Many of the bloggers have done a year in review.  I didn't do that.  I don't have many photos to share for 2014.
I am putting that year behind me and focusing on 2015!  I am challenging myself to celebrate and scrapbook something for each month of the year.
I also am going to get one oddball job done every day.  Today was the silverware drawer!  There was more stuff in there that we will never use!
I am hoping we go to the show today and see the latest Hobbit movie since we have seen all the others. 
God Bless and Happy New Year!
