I don’t know how many of you get annoyed by all the drama, sadness, and doom Facebook has to offer. I do. Sometimes it’s almost enough to deactivate my account. Every time I open Facebook, there is that pressing question. Facebook is always asking, “How’s it going, Sarah?” I never want to let my bad days, sorrows, physiological questions/thoughts clog up my friends news feed or have others pick apart and find fault in them, so I will most likely post something generic (like: I went sledding today. it was fun or I like ice cream.). Today wasn’t that case. Since my article in the paper on Sunday, I have been getting texts, emails, phone calls, notes, hugs….and I’ve feel sooo humble and full of gratitude and I couldn’t just let it sit there…I had to express it!! I would like to share what my Facebook status said today, “Facebook is always asking me, ‘How’s it going, Sarah?’ Well, I will tell you, Mr. Facebook. I am overwhelmed and so grateful for all the love and support my friends and family (and some people I don’t even know…) have given me my whole life. I love them all sooo much. I am soo glad that each one of them is in my life. I am so happy that I know the Church is true and that I know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me. I am soo blessed. Even though this life isn’t what I thought (or even what I want) it would be, I know that I will be able to make it through this with the help of my friends, my family, my Father in Heaven, and my Savior.” Thank you for listening to my little rant. Now you may go and enjoy the rest of your day. But please remember (or at least think about) what you are grateful for today…and don’t forget to smile! 😀

love it. I hate how negative facebook it too. Read the article. So excited for you
I’m just learning about Facebook at 45. I really love your website. You are so good at staying positive! It’s obvious that you are extremely intelligent. Ben, a family member, developed LifeKraze.com. I was hoping to have him talk to your mom. Ben is 24 and supper busy managing his new company. Let me know what you think about LifeKraze. I thought that website encouraged people to stay positive.
You probably heard about me. I have Traumatic Brain Injury. I had to have help starting a website. Professor Anne Hunt developed http://www.idahohatsetc.com for me. I have really wanted to develop a website to help folks sell handmade items.
Really hoping a fundraising program gets developed for you. I sure wish I could do this, but due to head injury, I would really need some help. If one gets started, I sure will be there to help you!!
I’m really proud of you, Sarah. Take good care of yourself. I will always pray for you!! Tam
