Marsha Spohn I’m glad you stopped in to check me out!

Really… I am.  It’s hard to trust someone that you don’t know yet.   I completely understand that.

First of all, I’m going to break some rules.  I cannot stand being spoken to in the third person.  Many will suggest that a professional About page should read as a review of the person and to keep the “I” out of it.

Trouble is – that’s not me.  So, here goes.

I have recently been book review blogging on several sites – and it is something that I completely enjoy.  I have always loved reading, and now by putting my thoughts out there about the different stories I’m reading  I am meeting such a wonderful group of people.  Writers, readers, bloggers and support people… all amazing.  And I’m having such fun.

I will also touch on other parts of my life, occasionally.  Like living the life of a medical mom – a term that any mother of a disabled child will be familiar with.  It does not define me, but it certainly is a part of me.

I am the parent of a young man who is physically disabled… (or challenged or handicapped or unable… or whatever the current “correct” term is at this moment in time).

He is an amazing man who lives a very full life, so no feeling sorry for either of us is encouraged here.

We have had an incredible journey to get to this point in our lives.  Some good, some great… and some painful.  But then, who hasn’t, really?

Truth is we are more than the medical parts of our lives, even though it plays a large part in both of our lives. Truth.  Reality, good and bad.  Ideas.  Suggestions.  An ear to listen to anyone who wants to speak (write).  Because… I’ve been there.  I’m still there.

But I also want to share other parts of my life, things that I enjoy.  Why?  Simply put, life is for the living and you have to have a life to truly live.

I hope you enjoy your time here and take away good things from me.

You see?  We are not all “just one thing” there are many facets of our lives – I’ll probably share more than just my love of books here — so time will tell if there is more to write about.
