“The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.”  Kalu Ndukwe Kalu

54 YO  PTSAHM of Things 1 and  Thing 2** one girl and one boy kind :)- sister, daughter, aunt and friend

Loves:  Scrapbooking, mixed media canvases and upcycled projects, Greek, Italian and Asian food, exclamation points, feathers, the color teal/aqua (think ocean), wine, reading,  the beach, old movies (classics and comedies-I can NEVER watch horror or scary movies), American Sign Language, travel when I can afford it, 80's  music (especially Prince, Madonna, Duran Duran, EWF and MJ) and oh yeah, did I say scrapbooking??!!

Our journeys with illness, hearing loss & cochlear implants have  showed us that it is important to embrace all of those with "different abilities" because EVERYONE has a gift to share in this life.  God has given us two very different children with very different abilities.  It's taught us so many important life lessons that are constantly changing.  One step at a time, one layer at a time is how we are doing it RIGHT NOW.  2010 and 2011  brought 2 healthy children instead of just one, peace, great progress for Thing 2; 2012   brought family changes and moves in simpler directions and more tranquility- 2013? It was a grace period of laying foundations down for future moves... 2014 brought a bilateral cochlear for Thing 2 and a new school -TWO things that increased our blessings tremendously! 2015 and 2016 have been pretty calm... Oh wait, I spoke too soon...we now add Autism and epilepsy to our mix for 2017-2019...BUT, we are still filled with gratitude for this life....  We still keep having earth angels help us along the way; most times when I least expect it.  God keeps showing me the glass IS 1/ 2 full :) when it comes to these two.  I keep trying to stay artsy to keep telling our story  and to stay sane!!!
