Happy New Year!

Watch for my next article soon!  I pray that 2012 holds wonderful things for you to discover, good health and precious memories to be made!

Happy New Year!

May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face.

May the rain fall softly on your fields,

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Happy New Year to All,

Looking Back to the First Christmas!

Just Five Minutes...Coping With The Grief

What a difference five minutes makes.  One more cup of coffee, a stop on the commute for a donut, an extra red traffic light ... anything.  Just five minutes and my life would be different. 

I try to keep my blogs upbeat and positive.  They are based on true experiences and living out dreams.   I found this article tough to write.  Living with Fibromyalgia is a life long journey. Struggling and reaching my dreams did not happen overnight.  If I'm truly going to be an inspiration, especially to new patients with Fibromyalgia, you should know that I grieved for a long time over the life I once had.   

"...plans to give you hope and a future"
This article may be tough to read, but I hope you will stay with it.  This is how my journey began and the message I want to impart is important.  There are days when my true feelings about this disease creep up and force me to deal with the loss it created in my life.  The reason I want to talk about that grief today is so others with this disease can know they are not alone.
