Thank You!

When I was thinking and praying about starting a blog I just felt so nervous. I know I wrote my book, but I haven't written anything since. What if I can't think of anything to write about? What if nobody reads it? And you know...

I had to put all those things aside, and take a chance. I am so glad I did! I told Marc what I had in mind for the picture, and within about 10 minutes he had it all set up, and there it is! The teacup belonged to Grandma Dooley, the lovliest of women, so it is extra special.

Then you all left me encouraging comments on here and on Facebook, and again my cup overflows with the love and support of my wonderful family and friends. Throughout all these years of living with MS each one of you have helped me in your own special way. I wish I had enough words to say what it means to me to be accepted and loved by so many extraordinary people. Thank you for praying for me, for your phone calls at just the right time, for lending a shoulder to cry on, for making something that is so hard feel a whole lot easier.

My Love to You,


  1. Ylisa, I cannot tell you how many times your JOY has helped me be grateful. You are a blessing to so many people. The Lord is going to do amazing things in your life!

    (You wrote a book?! How did I not know that?)

    I thought that looked like your kitchen! Very cool picture. Love the special teacup, too!

  3. Ok, just as I clicked to see what you wrote today I was stuck on the picture thinking how awesome it was and thought to myself "I wonder where she found this pic.....it's perfect" then to my surprise as I read along I find out it's your picture.....how AWESOME!!! Great job on it! It also reminds me of what "brother Jerry" said on Sunday about the cup over flowing and having to drink from the saucer!! You are an inspiration my friend!!!! Keep shining your light on us Please!!! ;)

  4. Reading your entries confirmed what I saw in you. Wonderful. Beautiful. Oh and I am not anonymous.

  5. As I've always said, it's nearly impossible to put into words the impact you've had on my life. It's been awesome to see God working in your heart through the years, and I've benefited along the journey. That's just like God, isn't it?(and His Word confirms it) He can use our trials to benefit others. Thank you for sharing your life with me! I love you!
