Note to self; get your business done.
Despite the loss of my independence, mobility and now my voice, I am more determined than ever to make a difference in the ALS community. I decided to use my eye-gaze controlled computer to help others. I have begun a donation campaign to raise money to bring a comforting “hug” to children affected by a loved one with ALS. It is my hope that this worthy cause will go beyond the Green Bay, Wisconsin area to help children throughout Wisconsin and across the country. My fundraiser has already gone beyond borders. Besides Wisconsin, kids from Indiana, Alabama and even Ontario Canada have gotten a “Hug”.
Please consider donating, even if it’s only a couple of dollars. If you can’t contribute, I would appreciate your support by sharing my message.
There are actually 3 ways to donate.
By check, mail to:
Lets Make ALS Bearable”
Denmark State Bank
1740 Scheuring Road
De Pere, WI 54115
PayPal to my email: email@example.com
There is also a Go fund me page: https://www.gofundme.com/lets-make-als-bearable
If anyone knows of a child affected by ALS who would like to get a “hug”, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance for your time and consideration, a huge thank you to everyone who has already helped make my dream to give some love to the ALS community a success!

We must have a theme, a goal, a purpose in our lives. If you don’t know where you’re aiming, you don’t have a goal. My goal is to live my life in such a way that when I die, someone can say, she cared.

Have Hope, Keep Faith…
In my lifetime the world has changed rapidly. The world is evolving faster every day. And every aspect of our lives changes according to this new world, according to our vision of the world.
Love, or the way we perceive it, has changed as well. Some say that we have grown to enjoy being alone, that we enjoy the idea that technology can imitate real interaction. We text, we e-mail, we skype, we like, we comment, and, yet, we often find ourselves asking, “What is love?” or, more importantly, “What is love supposed to feel like?”
Sometimes we tend to analyze stuff for longer than necessary. Most times we like to believe that life was better, funnier in a distant past we will never be able to go back to. The place and time we live in is never as wonderful as those million worlds we imagine or dream about.

Find your paradise with inner peace.
what i have come to realize is that life is not at all what it seems
people can take you, shake you and listen to your screams
but in the end, you must delve deep within yourself
no distractions, no fear, just an exploration far from everything else
close your eyes, take a breath and seep into your seat
i want you to do this when you feel lost, and if need be, repeat
think of all of the things you are grateful for
feel a smile form on your lips, feel your heart soar
feel your way around the deepest parts of your soul
find the warmth inside yourself when you’re surrounded by a world so cold
know that despite the external chaos, there is a calm sea of peace and light
in this place, you do not need to try so hard…you do not need to fight
