Happy Thanksgiving!


Most of us are sitting around a table, sharing a festive meal with family and friends, enjoying each others company.

Today, I am welcoming a friend into my home and into my family. For this, I am thankful. Thankful for being able to do this for a woman whom I consider a sister and who has been there for me many a time. Thankful that, while I can help her, she is willing to help me as well. Thankful that she understands my illness and treats me the same as she always has – with love and respect.


Today, I give thanks for all of the understanding, love and support I receive from my family. The road I travel would be a lot more difficult without it.

Today, I give thanks to the people with ME/CFS, who are using the little bit of energy they have, and their supporters, to advocate for this invisible illness. Together we are fighting an uphill battle – one that has been made necessary by neglect and abuse from the medical community. I am thankful that I have enough energy to join the fight.

In fact, everyday I am thankful for all of the above and more.

Thank you for reading this blog!

Today Is World Hello Day!


So hello everyone! 

When anyone says hello to me, it immediately brings a smile to my face as I respond in kind. A moment of sunshine in a hectic day. It makes you feel noticed and valued. So much from such a small word!

Spread the love – say hello to anyone you meet today. It will brighten both your worlds!

Baby Sea Otter Makes a splash at the Shedd Aquarium!



This is too cute not to share! Just gives me the warm and fuzzies looking at those sweet pictures.

Well, well, who do we have here? This little cutie-pie baby sea otter is the latest addition to call Chicago’s, “Shedd Aquarium” her new home; her journey to arrive at the Shedd is remarkable.

At approximately one week old, weighing a mere two pounds (and that is probably “soaking wet”), this tiny sea otter was found on Coastways Beach in California.  A local resident taking an early evening stroll heard the cries of this dear little soul.  The good Samaritan immediately notified authorities; however, due to impending nightfall, no rescue could take place until the next morning, given the sea otter pup’s remote location.


It was determined that she was orphaned; as such, she needed immediate care and nutrition.  The Monterey Bay Aquarium initially took the pup into its fold, where it houses a special, “Sea Otter Program”.  This program…
