Big Sky Country, a Piece of Heaven

The Kingdom of God
is not far away -
It's as close as the things
we do and we say.
And the people like you
bring heaven nearer
And help to make
God's image clearer.

~ by Helen Steiner Rice

Thank you Thompson Falls for your Caring Support!
And Thank you Ro, and your team (Dianne, Carolanne & Bob)
for working so hard and putting together
such a FUN successful fundraiser!

Last Friday Sept 17, the film showing and fundraiser in Montana was a huge success, with a huge turnout, between 80 and 90 people, with over 25 auction items and raising just over $6,000!! And what a wonderful table display of food and assortments of desserts! I was sad to leave, and so pooped when I returned home. I am finally getting back into the swing of things, working hard and sleeping hard. Tomorrow I am planning to go with Jody to La Jolla Beach, to meet with some folks who help with SCI get into the ocean...called Wheel 2 Water. We'll have to see how it goes.
Thank you again for the fundraiser...Gratefully & Blessings to All, kelley

Fundraiser & Film Showing in Thompson Falls, MT

Many thanks to Ro Fundum for organizing this Fundraiser & Film showing in Thompson Falls, Montana, this Friday Sept. 17. The event will help with the continuation of my rehab in southern Cal, at Project Walk.

Time: 5:00-9:00 pm - Silent Auction & Appetizer/Hors d' oeuvres/desserts; at 6:45 pm film "3 Women 300 Miles" (60 min).

Where: New Life Fellowship Hall - Airport Rd. Thompson Falls.
Suggested donation: $10

Ro & Carol Anne, and many others here in Big Sky Country have worked so hard putting together this fundraiser & showing...I am so blessed.

After last Thursdays workout--I pack my bag and was able to take the week of Sat. 9/11 to Sun. 9/19 off to be here in Montana, visiting Mom, relatives & friends. My parents have lived in Thompson Falls for 31 years and I have met so many wonderful people throughout those years....and I am looking forward to seeing them and meeting new friends Friday night.

At this time in my life I'm finding it difficult to have time to do "other things" such as write on the stamina has been low. I try to pace myself and conserve energy just to allow time for my exercise rehab, eating and wash clothes; my poor apartment kitchen floor needs to be cleaned! It's been interesting to be out on my own...good in many ways too, but somethings just don't get done. But I'm looking forward to Mom coming down, the end of Oct., for the winter! (looking forward to her company and help, and having more time to write on the blog ;). Wilbur and I get to go to the park everyday, that's a must...we've only missed a couple times.

Being here in Montana for the past 5 days has aloud me to catch up on sleep & relax, and walk the dogs around the beautiful block with Mom and Ro.

I appreciate immensely all the support everyone, everywhere has given me; making it possible for me to

be working at Project Walk. Movement and sensation is happening!! little by little, giving me more hope, and courage to keep going. Onward!!

Love and Blessings, kelley

P.S. For those who love Dogs & know Wilbur--he make a smile....
