Babs, (((prayers and gentle hugs ))), Your prayers, and support mean so much. My goal is to be of support to others too. You have been through trials too. I hope that you are improving. You are in my thoughts and prayers, Cecelia
Bill, You do not ramble...what you have to say is very important. I can tell that you are passionate about
helping others. You are an inspriation for me. I can not begin to imagine what you have endured. You have great courage and a huge heart. You have gone from death's door, to being quadriplegic and now you have started climbing the mountain. Although you haven't mentioned them, I sure that you have daily issues to deal with too. I can see you climbing to the top of the mountain in a short time. I am so glad to hear that you have a wife and sons for support and you have excellant health care. Thank you for telling your story...and the reason why you talk about
it. It does give hope to me, and I'm sure to many, many others. I didn't talk about
my illness because the people in my life just don't want to hear it. They are very uncomfortable about
the issues I have to deal with on a daily basis and they don't know what to say. From now on, I will adopt your attitude about
helping and informing others from speaking out. I don't know why I survived that one crisis, but I did. I don't understand why I have been given the trials that I have. The only thing I pray for myself, is grace.
When I was younger...from age 6 into my 30's...I showed horses, hunters and jumpers. I worked hard at it and won many championships...I golfed too, I fenced in college as well as showing. I studied ballet with my riding for many years. Always in the background was my music. I play the harp. On a good day, I can tune them. On a very good day, I can tune them and play. On a great day, I play for special needs groups, especially children. I am a very passionate advocate for Autism awareness and early intervention. One child in every 166 has autism. I am also very passionate about
adopting retired greyhound racers. They are wonderful companions and can be greyt therapy dogs. We have three and I don't know what I would do without them...they are very empathetic companions and one has become my son's therapy dog. Now I will become an advocate about
Lupus awareness...that's because of you.
I hope that today is a great one for you, (((prayers and gentle hugs))) Cecelia
