Sharpie Messages: The Writing on the Wall


Chastity and Jullian had all the ingredients for a successful life together, if only Chastity could exorcise her past full of memories of her first love. When Xavier disappeared from her life, she felt rectified in pursuing happiness with the man who sincerely loved her and “ad her back”. Chastity met Xavier during a time in her life when she was in search of acceptance. His mysterious existence compounded the worth of his affection. When Xavier’s parents were tragically killed, he was left at the mercy of the state foster system. He refused to be a ward of the state and chose to go into hiding until his eighteenth birthday. Living in his abandoned family home, Xavier attempted to keep his exile private. Walking home in the midst of a snow storm, Chastity was forced into the neighborhood “haunted house” to avoid the weather. There she discovered random writings on the walls and was further intrigued with the author. Not one to concern herself with appearance and always the target of the school socialites, The Princesses, Chastity found herself falling in love with the “bad boy” that her friends warned her to avoid; but her insistence to date Xavier also earned her newfound respect at school and with her difficult, self-centered younger sister. What should she do? Thumb her nose ast the naysayers and stay loyal to the mysterious Xavier? See reason and agree to be Jullian’s girl? Or just forget it all and continue to be the victim of social power?
Melissa Wolff has embraced he essence of a young girl’s dilemma. The pressures of social attitude and sexual intimidation are so very prevalent in today’s world makes this an important work for young girls.

MS Awareness Month: The Letter K

K is for keeping up with Jones's. 
Get rid of this philosophy RIGHT NOW. You are special. You are unique. You are a Warrior. You are a Super Star. MS does not define you. 

We have enough on our plates without worrying about without the rest of the coming and goings in our neighborhood, church, community, family. So what if Bubba got a new ski boat or Nibby Neighbor Nancy is planning - loudly - her spring cruise. I celebrate daily getting out of bed. No, I am not downplaying the excitement surrounding these happy moments in the lives of those folks we know. As MS Warriors, we sometimes need to remember that life hold more bonuses than money can buy.

This morning I am reminded that spring is on its way. Sure, I saw the news and I am well aware of the snow storm that promises to pelt our country in a few hours. I am ready. Milk in the fridge. Bread in the pantry. Flashlights battered up. But, behind that storm is spring and my favorite scent of all times: lilac. Don't ya just love t…

The N of MS.

N is for not allowing MS to win. This easy. Refer to A-M and O-Z.

As MS Warriors it is our job, our responsibility, and our mission to provide information, support, insight, and understanding to this ridiculous disease.

#WeAreStrongerThanMS

When I say we need to provide information, I am not just talking about clinical research and statistics. If you are living with MS or are close to someone with the MonSter, you have more information than can be found on the internet. YOU are the expert. YOU are the prime resource for what's what in this crazy land of MS. You experience(s) is invaluable.

Supporting the fight against MS wears many hats. Sure, you can make a monetary donation, but that is not always feasible in this tight-budget minded world. I am definitely preaching to the choir here. As a retired school teacher, I am facing quite a few unplanned expenses. No, money is not the only way, or necessarily the best way to offer assist…

MS Awareness Month: H is for Hair Appointments...Really?

H is for hair appointments. Okay, I know what you are thinking. "How can Lisa even think this is remotely important? I am struggling to get through the day. Who cares about my hair?" You're right. I really do not care about hair appointments any more. In fact, I have fallen into the category of old woman buns. That is not the point (As I am certain you have already ascertained.) The point is, do not forget your self image. Make that nail appointment, get that massage, read that book, order that dress, plant that flower. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.


So, if  H is not really for hair appointment, what is your MS H?

Let' make a list:

is for...

Happiness
Healthy choices
Hampering the effects of MS
forming good Habits
Handicap parking (Without my placard I would NEVER go to                                     WalMart!)
Heat BE GONE!
Knowing you are NOT Helpless.
MS is not Hereditary.
Realizing you are a Hero of epic proportions.

And...you are...a Hero.

Share your thoughts on the letter H…
