About Alesia

Hi Ya’ll,
My blog is home to a free spirit these days. I recently was given another award for my blog. It is a great honor to be noticed. In all humbleness, I only wanted to find my way in this world and fit in. In the grand scheme of things, my blog has helped that process considerably. Below is my definition for why I started this blog and I have not changed the words at all. I am still that little girl with a pen in hand trying my best. If you are old or new to blogging–do not forget that your words and your thoughts matter.
The greatest use in this life is spending it on something that will outlast our lives. This is what writing does for me. In writing this blog, it is my hope that this will become habit for me as brushing my teeth. I would want this blog to become a log that my family can go back and look upon as our history. So it’s in my research in this life that I form a pattern of collectively putting my thoughts down as if it were a normal occurrence in my day. This would in some way be an exercise of mindless (not really mindless) behavior. It’s just my way of saying I want this writing to be like a part of me..As easy as having my cereal in the morning. The reason I would want to be like this is so my brain will have reserve power for those things that really can not be foretold in advance…Those are probably the things I really need to be thinking about. Let this writing become a habit for me so that you all enjoy it and I find deep pleasure in the way I convey myself to you in sincere simplicity.

    Hello, I love your way of thinking towards blogging. I, too, would like blogging to be a habit of mine to expand my knowledge while exploring the blogosphere and meeting new people, like you. I’m just in my very first stage of blogging, but already I am having so much fun. I also would like my little boy, who’s my main inspiration, to be able to look into this and feel proud of me.

    Thank you for following my journey.
    I just followed yours.

      HI there,
      You made my day with your kind words. I have been hoping for more people like you to understand my journey and what this means to me. I wish I was as smart as you are though!

        Pain has been my shadow for the last 30 years after a car accident. Pills appear to be the answer but I agree they are given too freely despite the control place by the FDA. My new friend is cannibus lotion with no THC and an infusion, It is safe for animals so must be safe for me. Both things have made the pain improve, for about 12 hours, and I find that remarkable, sometimes it pays to be a lightweight.My other friend is steroid injections by a great doc that is right on. It usually keeps me happy for a couple years until I do something silly like fall off a paddle board!..

        Hey Mary Lou- I am a cannibus user too. I am planning on writing an in depth post soon about my usage. It is very little really , but gets me at a point I am pain free and that time is pretty amazing for me. I am afraid we picked a field that can be pretty hard on the body. I didn’t think much about being a nurse. I just did my job and at times lifted things 4 times my weight with I am sure poor body mechanics!! I also think the brain tumor I had on my motor/sensory cortex messed my pain receptors up and cells when receiving a painful stimuli naturally interpret that pain and it is felt deeply! Bummer. But life is still for the taking and I enjoy it immensely especially when surrounded with good company. I should come visit you . Coffee with you sounds delightful…

      I need all the help I can get. I am looking for my niche! Most importantly I like the idea of leaving a legacy of words for my grandchildren as my son has indicated he wants a bunch of kids!

    This is a lovely blog. I am particularly interested in your stories about Luke. Alesia, I am currently working on a series called ‘Faces of Love’ on my blog, and would like to perhaps include some of you, your husband, and Luke. May I do so?

    Dear Fellow WordPresser,

    Thanks for recently liking one of my posts on SharingMom.com. I just wanted to let you know that in the near future, I will not be showing up on your WordPress Reader Feed or on Freshly Pressed. I would like to add plug-ins to my blog to make the site more user friendly and in order to do that WordPress requires that I host the blog elsewhere. The bummer is that once I change hosts I will no longer show up on your WordPress feeds.

    Since I have written articles and posted recipes that you have liked, I would be honored to have you subscribe to my blog, SharingMom.com, so I don’t lose touch with you once I make the change. That way you won’t miss the great info and recipes that are scheduled to post in the coming weeks.

    I am also working on a free e-book with 10 gluten-free, dairy-free snacks and desserts. When it is ready to go live, I will post it on the site. As a subscriber, you’ll be the first to know!
    Thanks for joining me. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

      For your info, you can follow any blog (WP.com or not) on Reader by simply adding the URL to the RSS feed. I tried it for a blog I follow that is no longer on WP.com and it works a treat.

    Thank you for dropping in at my site! You are always welcome, and yes, I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Washington state over the years. It’s really beautiful…how I’d love to live there!

    The first thing I’d do, however, is trade in my car. Gotta get those California plates off the road. I believe you know what I mean… have a great day!

      What I have learned after living here over 20 years is that many folks move here and stay, but not many born here leave the area! It is beautiful and has 4 seasons! Maybe rain could be called season 5, but it really does not bother me! Thanks for the follow. God Bless, Alesia

    Hi,
    Hope you don’t mind me contacting you via your blog. I have just published the ebook ‘Life with an Autistic Son’- a collection of posts, plus some exclusive content that originally appeared on my blog. As a follower of my blog, I’d like to send you a copy of the book, in exchange for a review on Amazon:

        Yes, that’s true. Sometimes the words come easy, sometimes it’s hard to find the right one. But writing from the heart seams to be the most authentic. I like that. 🙂

    A Spikey now, eh Alesia? – that growing clan of folk known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures since the 70′s, as well as day to day happenings on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it. Of course, if you have any suggestions for me, I’d love to hear from you, serious.

    In return, I promise not to be overbearing with perhaps 2-3 posts a day tops. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again for your vote of confidence, and hope you have a great day…

    I am glad you somehow found me. I’m sitting here in tears, not sad tears, reading your posts! I have had more than one exposure to the challenges of autism presented to me in recent years ; in a beloved co-worker’s daughter and a beloved musical colleague’s child (before she passed). I am so grateful to read your posts and learn more firsthand what the experience is like. May blessings be showered upon you.

    Dear Alesia,

    Thank you for posting such an interesting article about your mother’s wartime experiences. I am a historian and would be very interested in corresponding with her. Would you be kind enough to email me? I can then give you more background. I’d be very grateful for your help.

    Kind regards,

      I would be glad to help you, but I am not finding your email address in here or a word press page you have that indicates who you are. Are you looking for family? If so, please tell me your connections and I will talk it over with my mom. She is older now as you can imagine.

    Hi Alesia. Just catching up on your posts and wanted to let you know how much I’m enjoying your photos. I also discovered another blog that I thought might interest you. It’s a blog about gardening and life, but the writer’s voice sounds so much like you — and she lives in your area (I think). You may already be aware of the site, but if not, here’s the link: http://cinthiamilnerdotcom.wordpress.com/about/

      Thank you Faye. I have taken a bit of a break from writing, but I keep up privately. Writing is good medicine for the soul. I am sharing my own photography, but eventually will write again in more detail. Have a great day.

    I love the idea of leaving a legacy. I had not thought of it in that way before. I also enjoy following blogs of the retired as it is interesting to see how others are experiencing these years!

      Kendall-thank you. I am more than fond of your personality that flows through your gifts with showing us your interpretation of the world around you. We both have a deep connection to nature. It is one of the only areas I can feel true peace and almost feel childlike again. Bless you ..
