I am the mother of one special needs son and one typical son. This is and will always be the greatest accomplishment of my life. Watching my son work so incredibly hard each day, to overcome his delays is beyond inspiring. Watching his younger brother help him along is as heartwarming as it gets. My life motto has now become, don't focus on the challenges or the unexpected obstacles but instead celebrate all of the wonderful things that life has to offer and that you are lucky enough to be blessed with.
In addition to being a full time mom I am the owner and President of Violetgumdrop.com, Inc, an accessories company. I have several product lines that I design and manufacture and many of them are based on "sharing goodness". We recently launched "The GOOD KARMA Campaign" through one of our divisions called Karmagrams.com and our mission is to spread goodness all over the world by mailing GOOD KARMA to anyone that requests it. We want to lift the spirits of everyone. We would love to reach 1 million people and are asking for photos from any recipient that would like to send them in.
All of the products that I create are based on sharing goodness. My new ebook, soon-to-be-released book and gift items all are intended to lift others.
