- Thomas a Kempis (1380 - 1471)

Hello fellow crafters,
I do not know how many of my followers are still reading my blog, but thought I would tell you a little about myself.  I am almost 49 and have been married for almost 30 years.  I have 3 children, Cynthia 24, Kyle 21 and Storm 12.  I was a stay at home mom for many years.  From when I first fell pregnant till we came to Canada 14 years ago.  My two older children were high needs kids as both of them have tourrettes so we learnt to cope with weird movements, sounds, OCD, hyper activity and all the other weird things they did.  Along with their condition comes temper tantrums which possibly I found the most exhausting.  We have been treating them with meds since Cynthia was diagonosed when she was 7.  Anybody who knows anything about these meds knows they only work to long and then you have to change them.  Originally we were told they would not amount to much as most people with tourrettes cannot hold down a job and the land up on the streets or in prison.  I am happy to say with hard work  my children are amazing.  Cynthia lives in another province, has a job doing daycare and also teaches drama and dance.  My son has just gone off to college in British Columbia to study musical theatre.  My youngest has been amazing since she was born at 27 weeks.  A fighter who hung on to life.  She keeps me busy and keeps me young.  I myself have been battling bi polar for a few years.  It was so bad at one time that I had to stop working.  With medication I am now reasonable stable, still have the odd bad day.  So my life story is not being told for pity but felt I needed to explain why sometimes I am really quiet, but I do check out all your blogs and I love your work even though I do not always leave comments.  I find it really hard to communicate with people sometimes, whether by email, phone or in person.  I have found you all really amazing with your art, and I know if it was not for my art and crafts I would not have made it through all these years. 

Thank you for listening to my ramblings today.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and God Bless
