What an awesome story! I love people who are disabled to prove that people can do anything else can do.

I did when I bet bypassed a bachelor’s degree and did the work of a master certification program the Chapman University in Orange California. I was the co-founder of the Epilepsy Connection helping people in three countries and various counties in California where I lived at the time.
At the Summit Meeting I held there people paid $250 to hear me speak, and I had a classroom of 50. I created a PowerPoint presentation explaining what epilepsy was but it wasn’t and how you can acquire it and I answered questions with handouts. at the beginning of the presentation I said a friend of mine had epilepsy and that’s why I always cared to help others. at the very end I said by the way, the friend was me.
People took a double take and looked with shock at me sayimg “I never would have known, as they shook my hand and said what an honor it was to meet me.

Anyone can do anything in this world, and we all carry some trial or tribulation on our shoulders.
Attitude is the key most important possession you’ll ever take with you in your life.

Friends Becoming Family and Answered Prayers

Always be grateful for the people in your life that enrich it by their presence.

My friend Leonardo Valencia is one of my best friends in the world here and has become family. We met inJune of last year, when I moved from Southern California to Las Vegas….my new desert home.

My friend David Rayburn is one of the nicest men I have ever known, and I was blessed when I moved on my apartment here and he became my neighbor and now great friend. He is strong, courageous, funny and sweet and we are two doors away from eachother. I have someone who loves my cooking and truly appreciates me and who I am. It seems that we both possess what the other needs.

My friend Ron B and I go back about ten years and we talk nearly every day, even though he lives in a small town back east called Hollistan, MA. Distance knows no boundaries when it comes to great friends and the bond that they share between each other.

My friend Francesca Cangiolosi and I met when I had my cooking blog called “Cooking Up a Storm All Over The World” up and running. I couldn’t afford to keep it running on Ning. Com and was having trouble with billing, so I let what I created over six years vanish off cyberspace. It was a conscious decision on my part I don’t regret. Friends now family like Francesca. She not only cooks really great but has a heart of gold and is one of the smartest most courageous people I have ever known. I am so grateful to know her.
She has been there through the good and the bad and stood beside me to weather the storms; that is a true friend. When she offered for me to come live with her, she became family.

Sometimes friends are better with who your family turns out to become. People change and are motivated to do cruel and evil things for monetary gain. Mine did but I can only be concerned with the fact that I held on to what mattered values and great friends emerge through the darkest of times.

Great friends enable you to see the strength in yourself you didn’t know you had.

Also, look around you and count the many blessings you prayed for and we’re given the answer to your prayers.

Jot down some of the things that made you know God was listening to every word of every prayer.

Note: In no way are all my friends mentioned here. They would be too numerous to mention.
