A special announcement!

I’ve missed writing so much; but sometimes things get way too busy to have time for everything (I’m sure you’ve all had a similar experience at one time or another, so you can relate).

A short FYI for those who have been following me since I started my blog and for new followers…I have slightly updated some of the pages and content, and I’m also getting a schedule ready to see if I can fit more writing in 2016.  Wish me luck and I’d love to hear how everyone is doing, if you’d like to leave a comment 🙂

On that note, I do have something exciting to share!  I am doing a podcast with my dear friend Joe where we spotlight individuals who are making a difference in other people’s lives.  The podcast is called: The Make A Difference Spotlight (aka MADS). We’re on Stitcher and iTunes if you’d like to follow us.

I’ll most likely post our weekly stories on the blog from now on, they are really inspirational and share so much of the beauty of humanity! Will love hearing your thoughts if you tune in and if you have someone you think we should spotlight please let me know (leave a comment or write).

This past week’s MADS story was about two sisters on a journey to find bone marrow donors across all 50 states on their road trip. Here’s the link if you’d like to tune in (the episodes are not long, about 20 min or so).


Help Fight Multiple Sclerosis

If you want to help a good cause here’s one coming up – the Bike MS: Ride the Rhode.
Many participate in this event to help the National Multiple Sclerosis Society raise funds that the NMSS will use to not only support research for a cure, but also to provide programs which address the needs of people living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) today.
Michael M Powers is one of the upstanding and brave individuals who wants to help fight MS. He is registered to participate in the Bike MS: Ride the Rhode because, as he said himself, he wants to do something for the people who have been diagnosed – and because he wants to do everything to prevent more people from learning what it means to live with this disease.
