||My children Sam and Owen are my greatest success. They are humble compassionate and sometimes a big pain in my ass. Every night before bed I cherish "Good Night Mom I Love You" and I know I made it through another day. I am the type of person that will advocate for Type 1 Diabetes and Autism and Cerebral Palsy since both of my sons have these conditions. I will give 110% of myself even when I have a negative $0 in my bank account. My mother Alice Ann taught me the value of holding your hand out to pick up someone who needs help even when your pot is empty. I love life daily even when I am scared and sleep deprived worrying about Sam's blood sugars, He has been close to death and I do not sleep well anymore. We have a puppy Maggie which our dog Cloe gave birth to. Somehow Maggie knows to come and get me in the middle of the night. My mother sent her from the Heavens to watch over Sam and Owen. She just saved Owen from a rattlesnake. I have managed to slow down in life to notice the small things that makes us who we are.
