I have been working on my book every day for the past week while John takes his afternoon nap. I decided that the housework could wait and I could put my book first. So even though the laundry doesn't get done until 9pm and the house is constantly cluttered, I am nearing the end of my first rough draft. I'm no longer overwhelmed when I think about my book. In fact, I am excited!
There is a sign on my mantel that reads, "The WORLD Is waiting to hear your STORY" My parents gave me this a couple years ago when I first began writing my book. There have been times that it has pumped me up and times that it has made me feel ill not knowing if I would ever accomplish my goal. I'm happy to say that for the first time in two years, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it feels great!
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
