A Return to Blogging

I have not posted in a long time. In fact, it was December 24, 2012, the last time I had anything to say. Well, at least that I was willing to post here. A lot has happened since then, as time does not stand still. On this "half-Christmas" I thought I would pick myself up and post something. I am listening to a book on tape about a woman who started blogging after her marriage crumbled and she was fired from her job for being too old -- at age 45. No, my marriage is not crumbling, and I am not being fired (that I know of, although a colleague did get fired on the spot a couple of weeks ago, with no notice, but that is a whole different story -- maybe I will write about it some time).

Anyhow, my first blog post coming back from hiatus will pick up on another story that captured my heart last year. It is the miracle boy named Dominic Pio, who underwent multiple surgeries to repair facial birth defects when he was only a few months old. I was so inspired by his story that I wrote about him several times before Christmas. So, I checked his website to see how he is doing, and I just watched a video that a local Wisconsin TV news station did on Dominic and his wonderful family. It brought tears to my eyes. Here is the link to the story:
The only thing certain was love - TODAY'S TMJ4

What a joy it is to see the progress that Baby Dominic is making. His mom recently posted an update on his and their family's progress. She homeschools their seven other children, which is a monumental task in and of itself. Here is one of the You Tube video that Mary Gundrum posted showing what a happy little boy Dominic is. It is evident that his siblings love him immensely from the loving attention his two sisters give him in this video!


May God continue to bless Dominic and his entire family!
