Sahring my story at"'meet theuilter"
Wow!! I was blessed to hear Mr.Isaac *speak this morning- a fellow traveler on the road with parkinson's-his presentaion was inspiring and just awesome!! he shared his list of 25 points/ways living with parkinsons but they are really good for anyone who needs to remember to face each day positively, no matterhow you feel in the morning. I will keep it handy.
I attended a speech nad swallowing seminar since I have had some issues with this and learned some greta ideas to take back to my DR.
Amazing!! I know I have used that word often lately, I am just so humbly thankful for all these blessings I recieve each day, it is just amazing I am blessed to recieve them.
I had the honor os sharing my story, my creativity since I was diagnosed and my quilt panels. I got kind of nervous half way through but then felt I was not alone and was able to share of God's mercy- we never walk alone, I know hwne I was diagnosed it was not a punishment, so i decided to try and make a difference and remember each day I am living I will do my best to be a blessing unthto others until I am called home to rest.
It ia amazing!! I met Matthew - it was his idea to make the quilt project- such an honor to meet him and shake his hand, ok you know me-gave him a hug Melissa -such a sweet lady- wonderful to meet her in person (she got a hug too) these 2 people have touched my life and hundreds of others,their work is making a difference in raising awarness to one day find a cure. I admire them and am very thankful for all they do. Mr. robin elliott the director of the Parkinson's foundation, I was very humbled by his thoughtful note I recieved in the mail before the confrence, meeting him in person was an honor. He co created this Congress and to meet him and thank him for his knid wotrds and the wortk he does was a memorable moment, for him to say I was important and my work -my story was important was a moment, I shall never forget. These three people are true heroes, working to make make a difference, offering Hope and woeking towards one day having a cure.
That, me from Marysville WA, a wife, a Mom, a preschool teacher could sew a couple stories, make quilt panels and go to Scotland imagine what could be done if we all got together in our coner of the world each day what a difference we could make.
Praise be to God for my dear family and loved ones, this trip and a safe trip home. see you soon Marysville!!
