The things that can happen when you tell your story! . . .

Sharon VanderWaal was surprised enough when I asked to interview her and ran her story last October. Can you imagine her feelings when a blog writer from the New York Times did the same???

The Times writer featured Sharon and two others in an article about caregiving and how to deal with after the caregiving ends. Click the link to read it and you'll find Sharon mentioned in the middle part.

I think you'll appreciate getting to know Sharon, I know I have! ferree

Sharon and Wayne a few months before his death


  1. "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us," Ephesians 3:20

    Those years of caring for Wayne and then grieving for him were/have been difficult, but the fact that He is able to do immeasurably more than all I ask or imagine is amazing!

  2. I love that verse, Sharon. God takes these things we never thought we could survive and works His power within us in more ways than we could ever imagine. And then He goes beyond! blessings on you!

  3. When I had read this; it had brought tears to my eyes. I love your honesty Sharon and I love how you open your heart to your readers.

    With your posts on your blog; I really love how much your share your Faith in all that you write.
