alex's life book

  • In early 2006, I began creating a life book for my daughter, Alex. Click here for links to articles describing my experience.
  • And for those of you who are more digitally inclined, in late 2006, I recreated key pages of Alex's lifebook for an article I wrote for AlphaMom, using Scrapblog.

    You can see the final digital result (and leave comments, if you'd like!) here.

Great thought, as always.
As a recovering alcoholic, I can't get away with NOT doing good things for others. That is part of the recovery program. We must do this because we spent so many years thinking only of ourselves. The phrase we use is ...
DO THE NEXT RIGHT THING.

Hi Karen! I was super busy at work yesterday and didn't get to send happy words of encouragement your way, but you sound like you're feeling much happier today! I love your challenge for everyone today. I had a friend recently say to me that she just couldn't feel close to God and she kept trying. I told her to do acts of kindness and not only would she feel close to God, but so would the person she was being kind to. My motto is "play nice with the other kids while I'm here"!!!!! Take care Sweetie and we all miss you in Houston!

Nice entry today, K and so glad to have found Funchilde. Her blog is great.

I can not wait to see the next issue of Indigo Leaf. So excited for you and this venture.

Just delurking (as I do occasionally) to say how much I've enjoyed your blog. I loved it before you changed your focus, but I love it more now. I find your writing so thoughtful, and your pictures so beautiful. So, thanks for sharing this part of yourself.

Random acts of kindness. They are so great and you are so right: you don't have to put yourself out to make someone else's day. Thanks for the reminder.

I regularly read your blog, but rarely comment. But needed to today to say thank you for the lovely thought and for the lovely photo. I've just returned to work after a lovely week long vacation with my kids and was feeling pretty blue; but your words and image perked me up immensely. Thank you.

Ahh, Karen -
Way to go Big in a small way - being positive CAN help you out of a funk, I agree. Yeah for the new Indigo magazine!
