While eating lunch and channel surfing, not long ago, I stumbled upon a talk show and was immediately hooked. The host, Mel Robbins, is a life coach.  After watching the show, I jumped on Amazon.com to find her book, The 5 Second Rule. Purchased it and when it arrived, read it in one evening. It’s been about a month now since I finished the back, and what a life-changing experience it has been. So that being said, if you find yourself in a rut in any aspect of your life and you’re tired of being in said rut, give this book a read.  You won’t be disappointed!!!!

My Favorite Book (to date): https://amzn.to/2BZ5Mvm

One of my New Year’s resolution is to stop drinking soda pop.I have been drinking soda pop soda for many, many years. And, not the sugar free variety!! LOL. Wanting to change my life and attempt to get away from the sugary drink addiction and improve my overall appearance and health, I have replaced it with Sparkling Ice+Caffeine (Black Raspberry). It is a bit pricy, but for me the sacrifice of something else to get this product has been beneficial.  At this writing I have almost beaten this addiction and already feel better physically and have more energy.

Introduction: Part 2 — Reflections of 2019

My life as I knew it was forever changed on August 23, 2019. It was on that morning that I found myself being loaded into an ambulance and rushed to the nearest hospital. It wasn’t because of a car accident, or heart attack, but a medical emergency that for a person born with spina bifida could be life threatening had it gone undetected and untreated.  Unbeknownst to me or my mom who helps me with my care, I had developed a urinary tract infection that had mushroomed into my kidney and down into the tissues of my thigh. I spent 12 hours in the emergency room as doctors from many different departments worked to stabilize me and get me off to surgery to remove the bad kidney which had pretty much died. Hospitalized for 88 days, I was discharged to begin what would be a long recovery at home.

Back home again by the middle of November.  A slow process indeed. Did I mention I’m not the most patient person in the world?  How did I stay busy being bedridden all these months? I read, and I read, and I read some more. Fiction, nonfiction, magazines on writing and genealogy (more about that, so stay tuned), and I learned to appreciate my mom’s love for old movies.

Which brings me to my final thoughts on the past 18 months.  My unsung hero, my mom. Throughout my 58 years of life, she has always been my cheerleader, nurse, champion, and best friend. And along with me on this journey, we’ve cried; we’ve yelled; we’ve laughed; and at nearly eighty-five years of age,  she’s extraordinary, and I surely would have struggled and suffered far more without her by my side. “I love you, Mom, and I know I haven’t said it often enough over these past months, but, Thank you!”

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.
