Me in a nutshell: writer, momma, wife to a Canadian, founder of a non-profit organization, lover of pancakes&pickles and all things Jane Austin.
#1. My father was diagnosed with ALS in 2008. He was given 3-5 years to live. ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease, is fatal. There is no treatment. There is no cure. There are no survivors. He can no longer eat, talk, or even write to us. His optimism and unbelievable Faith has been a bittersweet thing to witness.
Unless I write my feelings, I rarely show them. This caused some issues when I would have mental breakdowns about my dad’s diagnosis, and my husband had no idea how to handle me. Enter blogging.
Now I am 24 lbs thinner, hopelessly in love with my little girl, and recently organized a 5K to bring awareness to ALS. I wouldn't go as far as to say blogging saved my life, but it has helped me do things I never thought I could before.
The sense of community from fellow bloggers is a blessing. I can write a review on a baby toy, a recipe, a reflection on my life, or just a few pictures and my readers read, reach out, and accept me. While I am still new to the sponsor, giveaway, advertise, grab button blogging world, I am excited to see where this journey takes me.
Come by my blog GH&FT- I'm excited to meet you!
