Thinking Positive


cousins Nancy, Mickey, and ME talking
to my aunt Rene
who was bedridden.
1979
When I saw this old photo of me I thought wow!  I was really young when MS first appeared in my life.

Yet I see it as a snapshot of the good times I was having with my family.

Look for the positives this Thanksgiving week!

My Tribute to my Uncle Carson Brown



It is with a heavy heart that I say these words....my uncle Carson passed away at the age of 73.  He battled Alzheimer’s at least 7 years, which was painful to watch.



my wedding 1985
He was my spiritual father and pastor most of my life.  He married us, was at the birth of my children, baptized them and was at all our birthday parties.....in other words, he and my aunt Sue were there in all the phases of my life.


Carson and Sue 2009

He was born with a club foot that couldn’t be repaired til he was 13 years old.  He was dyslexic so he could not read anything except the Bible.  He didn’t let those limitations slow him down though!



my aunt showed him a pic of what
she liked, so he made her one....
a spinning wheel!

He was preaching his idea of Heaven would be plowing (later I told him it was not my idea of Heaven:)).  He said to plow fields as far as you could see and maybe even an air conditioned tractor!  That would be Heaven!


As we remember him, I know what was important to my uncle Carson,  it was his family and 40 years of ministry.  He sure lived what he preached. 

He left this world a better place from the life he lived here!  He will be sorely missed!

Remember Glen in Your Prayers


my sister Karen's wedding 1982
I am maid of honor, hubs is best man

Glen has been my brother in law for 35 years.  He had surgery 2 weeks ago but something went wrong.  He ended up in ICU on a ventilator for over a week.

They finally found a serious leak hidden at the surgery site and repaired it.  He walked in the hospital a healthy 59 year old but now he is starting rehabilitation.

I spent a lot of time at the hospital ICU last week supporting my sister.  Please keep them in your prayers during this long road to recovery.

Life can change in an instant......be Thankful for Normal!
