"Bethie's Place"

I love reading, writing, and books!! Come on in and relax awhile!!!

My Introduction

My name is Beth, but my closest friends call me “Bethie”, and many of them have encouraged me to start writing a blog. So here I am! I’m sure you’ve noticed my photo and wondered why I’m sitting on my bed covered with an indian print blanket. For the better part of 2014, I was recovering from two surgeries and subsequent bone infections. I was born with spina bifida (http://www.sbaa.org) and live my life from a wheelchair.

I love to read and I love to write so what you’ll find here are my writings, musings, reviews of books I’ve read, and beginning  my journey into writing The Great American Novel.

As a modern weaver of words and creator of prose, I’ve created this blog, “Bethie’s Place”, for the lover of both fiction and non-fiction, for the young as well as the young-at-heart, using both extraordinary and the ordinary person as central characters for my writings, bridging my love of things old (history) and the ever-changing 21st century world we live in. So in the coming days, weeks, months, and hopefully years to come, I hope I will inspire you, make you smile, and bring a little extra special joy to your day!

Come join me on my journey!! Let’s talk books and writing!

My Introduction To The Blogosphere Starts Now

My name is Beth, but my friends call me “Bethie”, hence the name of my blog, “Bethie’s Place”.  Over many years I have tried to keep a private journal, and I always promise myself each New Year’s Day that I’ll do it, but it always ends up in failure.  So after a long recovery from a life threatening illness, I decided to dedicate my time to take my thoughts and make them public because it dawned on me that I wanted or needed an audience — someone to write to and for. If you’re interested in getting to know me better you can find a two-part introduction of who I am posted on my blog.

A Message To My Readers

Over the past five years my life has taken many twists and turns healthwise which kept me from updating my website here at WordPress as often as I had hoped. During my most recent health crisis (2018) there was one man who kept my spirits up with encouraging words, prayers, and at times, simply silence. He is my best friend, my cheerleader, and the love of my life. Robert, you’ve been beside me through many moments of frustration, discouragement, anger, sadness and most recently unimaginable joy as we became husband and wife on September 29, 2017.  As I reflect on your words of encouragement, love and support, this song came to mind. Thank you for teaching me and reminding me on a daily basis that no dream is impossible. I love you to the ends of the earth and for eternity.
