Best Gift Ever

Yesterday was an unforegettable day for me.  I headed to Winona, Mn with Steve and the kids for my birthday.  Winona holds a special place in my heart .  It is where I got the BA degree that my high school guidence counselor said that I would never be able to achieve and where I met my husband who was able to love me for the person that I am.

For the first time ever, I visited this beuatiful city and campus I called home without my mobility scooter.  I never imagined that I would be able to walk from one side of campus to the other so easily.  I felt like I was experiencing Winona State University for the first time.  I was able to walk with the sun beating on my face and the wind blowing my hair without the worry of whether I would make it to my next destination!  Being able to walk is better than any birthday girft anyone could ever give me.  I love my life!!!


  1. How exciting for you to experience your campus from a new point of view!
