LG Keltner @ Writing Off the Edge

Oh my gosh, I didn’t realize we had a new co-host! I’ve been a little behind the times, so I want to thank Tonja Drecker @ Kidbits for being our new co-host with LG! Welcome!!

The past couple of weeks have been so busy, I’m posting two weeks worth of celebrations today. I am one happy camper. 🙂

First, let me just say that after four and a half grueling years, I’ve finally been cleared to drive again by my neurologist! I’m still in shock and awe. Now it’s just getting over the fear and practicing with someone with some patience.

The Melissa Etheridge concert was unbelievably amazing. It was a lot smaller, more intimate, and on a beautiful night. I couldn’t have asked for more.

My daughter spent last weekend with me and we had a blast. She’s been trying to spend more weekends up my way, and that makes me so happy.

I met all my weekly goals.

Best of all, I’m STILL ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE GRASS!! Yeah, Baby!!

What have you celebrated this week?





About My Miracle Life

I'm a writer, blogger, avid reader, book reviewer, sub-arachnoid hemorrhage and stroke survivor, moving forward in my recovery and trying to advocate for stroke and brain hemorrhage awareness and prevention. I'm also slowly working towards independence, driving, my first novel, a memoir and a series of short stories. I've been lucky to have a very small network of close friends to guide me; I've been even luckier to have found an online 'family' of sorts to help me through the rough times.

    Getting to drive again and see your daughter more often both sound wonderful.


    • I know, right?! I’m excited for both, although I’m scared about driving again. I’ll have to wean myself back into it. Hugs to you and thanks for the visit. Eva

    Wonderful Eva. So glad for you. Have you been driving yet? I’t like riding a bicycle, you’ll find it easy. Love you.


    • I hope so, GMD. First I’m going to have to practice, practice, practice. Not yet. Hoping to get started next week. I’ll start by getting used to my car again and having T with me while I drive within the community. 🙂 Love you!
