Thank you for visiting me on my CaringBridge website. Your thoughts, prayers, encouraging words and the many kinds things you do for me and my family give us breathing room during challenges and accelerate the healing. You are beyond amazing and I love you! On April 12, 2016 I had a stroke. It was my 57th birthday and a day of mercy. Check out my journal for details of this grace-filled journey where I am constantly challenged to find new ways to EMBRACE MY LIFE.
