Life Is Flying By!

Happy April! 

"Change doesn't take time, 
It takes people willing to 
step outside their comfort zone to 
grow and improve." 

It's hard to believe that another month has passed us by. Today brings a Happy Birthday to my middle daughter, Kayla. Thirty thirty-two years ago, I was in the hospital giving birth to her. Eleven years ago I was in the hospital and told she may never walk agin. Today she she is a mother of two incredible kids, holds her PhD in Anthropology where she specializes in zooarchaeology (identifying bones), and she started a non-profit organization:
Focusing on STEM 
(Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). 

If you want to send Kayla a gift
help us find someone to donate enough
to buy the museum a permanent location 
they can call home!

Kayla has also designed all the covers on my novels:

And She illustrated I AM Awesome! 

 Her newest adventure with 
has taken Flight! 

A life worth living 
is never the easiest path...

Happy Birthday Kayla!
