March of Dimes' fight for preemies

While at BlogWorld, I had the pleasure of meeting Beverly Robertson from the March of Dimes. She mentioned the event she is coordinating: Fight for Preemies. Because a special preemie is in my heart, I was instantly committed to helping promote the event.

Beverly explained that “Every year, 20 million babies are born too soon, too small and very sick. November 17 is when we fight – that day is dedicated to raising awareness of the crisis of premature birth.”

When we first met, Beverly said she her goal was to have 200 bloggers join the event. At last check, 330 bloggers had united for preemies. Let’s blow the roof off of Beverly’s goal and see 500 (or more!) bloggers unite to raise awareness about our most fragile babies. If a preemie has touched your life, please join the Fight for Preemies event.

And check back next Tuesday when I interview the preemie who has captured my heart…

Mommy holding her baby Glenda by the Christmas tree

Forty-three years ago today, doctors weren’t sure I’d survive through the night, and then through the week, which just proves that they don’t always know everything!

Yes, I am 43 today and am proud to say that aloud! (I’ve never understood why  some people keep their age a secret. What are they ashamed of?) I have earned every wrinkle, every bump and lump of cellulite, and every jiggly bit. And each one deserves to be fully celebrated (once I’m feeling better).

Glenda Watson Hyatt on her 43rd birthdayWhat have I learned during this one hell of a journey? Here are a few lessons that readily come to mind:

  1. Delete the word can’t from your vocabulary. That four-letter word only restricts and limits you.
  2. Always do your best – your best in that moment.
  3. Appreciate and find joy in the small things in life. Those moments are truly precious.
  4. Smile and have fun.
  5. Live without any regrets!

These lessons I share with to you in hopes that you live your life to its fullest and be all that you can be!

Filed under: Blogging — by at 6:50 pm on Tuesday, November 3, 2009

Man, this swine flu has zapped my energy! i barely have energy to do anything and that is getting frustrating. My blog, my baby, requires consistent attention – something I love doing, for the most part – but even my creative juices have slowed down. I will return to sharing my journey from special ed classroom to university graduate and the next big milestone in “Love at First Sound Byte” (my next book title?) once I’m feeling better.
