    It may sound weird but I’m thankful for the ladies who play Sheepshead at my apartment building for teaching me how to play and letting me join in. I’m actually going to be playing tomorrow.

  33. JoAnn Wells November 16, 2016 at 11:26 am #

    While preparing for leading our bookclub discussion on THE WEDDING DRESS, I found your blog. Surely, God’s hand was in this! You see, my daughter also has MS. I can hardly wait to share your story with her! Thank you for your wonderful books, but especially your transparency in your witness for God and how he uses us regardless of life’s roadblocks! I am truly thankful for your witness.

    • rbclibrary November 16, 2016 at 1:21 pm #

      JoAnn you just made my day! Glad you found me. I hope your daughter fares well with her MS journey. I have been in remission for at least 6 years and have been off medication for that time. Praise God! Have a great book club meeting and a wonderful Thanksgiving!
