The girl who survived rabies without a vaccine.

I love documentaries. Here is one I watched recently. Very, very interesting! Sometimes we have to go beyond what we think we already know.

Freelance Business

I recently decided to turn a passion into a business. I started my career writing for a newspaper and through the years I've done freelance writing here and there, creating a software user guide for a company and assisting friends and family with resumes, essays, and college application materials. Now that I have officially finished my own schooling and I am a full-fledged Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), I am starting this business with the hope that I can turn it into at least a part-time career, which will allow me some freedom to do other things professionally and personally.

Please check out my website and share it with those who may benefit from my services. I offer discounts to students.

Thank you!

Women Friends

By Pamela J. DeRoy 

There are few, if any, relationships that can top having wonderful women friends. They love you unequivocally, they provide a soft place to land, they take your side and they love being with you - and the wonderful thing is, that is how you feel about them too. They don’t criticize, they don’t cheat, they don’t feel superior to you, they praise you and, if there’s a crisis, they’re the first ones to be there for you. 

Women friends are more precious than any worldly riches. They walk in your shoes, they understand you and they love you anyway. I wouldn’t trade a single one of my friends for the handsomest, sexiest, most intelligent man around! Women friends have staying power - they don’t pout, they don’t boss you around. Women friends send you encouraging hand written notes or e-mail messages, they call to see how you’re doing and they’re enthusiastic about getting together with you. Long live women friends and friendships."

I'm Here

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you.” - Frida Kahlo -

Our Giving Tree

Last year, I did a Facebook Giving Tree where people privately messaged me with needs they had for the holiday season. Thanks to the generosity of my friends, we were able to provide a great Christmas for a family in need and one I've known for many years.

This year, I decided to set up an account to make it easier for those who want to participate and I'm starting it early too in the hopes that we can fulfill more holiday wishes. If you'd like to participate, please click on the link below and donate. It's very much appreciated!!!

Are you really pro-life?

I love this because it's so true. I am pro-choice, but this article makes a lot of good points regarding the difference between pro-life and anti-abortion. Worth reading!
