Bits and Pieces



My first guest blogger, on August 15, 2011, was my friend, J. Aday Kennedy. I thought you'd like to see this inspirational interview with her.

The illness and stroke that left Aday a legally blind ventilator-dependent quadriplegic, failed to dim her love of life and determination to spread a message of inspiration and hope.

Joan Hallmark shares Aday’s story of triumph over tragedy in a memorable interview. In the fourteen years since becoming disabled she has cried and laughed her way through the hard times. Aday’s “CAN DO” philosophy shapes her speeches and writing.
Her writing has appeared in many newspapers and magazines including five inspirational essays  in the popular Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Currently she is writing her memoir, “Laughter Through Tears,” about her physical and spiritual recovery.

In a December 16th post, I wrote about Johnny, my bathroom bat. I'm happy to report he's back for the 7th year in a row.
