What a journey

 What a journey.
The past 10 years have been a roller coaster ride ,white knuckle ,kicking and screaming "Get me off this ride" ! Thank God ,I landed on my feet.
Pain ,it can take your life away , it was slowly taking mine. Everyday it grew stronger and I grew weaker.Always trying to be the strong one ,to be there for my family, I didn't want them to know what I was going through. They knew.
My remarkable Doctors, who I owe so much ,I am forever thankful. Dr Paonessa MD and Dr. John Paggioli MD  wonderful , kindhearted Doctors who worked together , allowing me to live again! Through 2 surgeries a few months back I was implanted with a Medtronic device and it is a life saver! The nurses and staff at W.W. Backus Hospital were outstanding! Thank you for the TLC!
Being with my family is a joy ,going to the store is fun again and just being able to take a walk ,feel the sun on my face, pure happiness!!
Thank you so much Dr Paonessa MD and Dr. Paggioli MD , you are both extraordinary!!

Uncle Ben's Kitchen Kickoff Party

I had a Uncle Ben's Kitchen Kickoff Party and it was a blast!! I did get to preview the  Uncle Ben's Whole grain brown rice and it is amazing!! We all loved it!
I made a couple of dishes to go with the party and everyone loved it!
One of the recipes I used was 
Uncle Ben's Brown Rice is so healthy too ! One serving of nearly all Uncle Ben's Whole Grain Rice varieties provide 100% the daily whole grain recommendation! 
Awesome food (Thanks to Uncle Ben's) great people and a fantastic day!!
It was also 2 of my children's birthdays ,so I thought because we like to do good for others I asked everyone that stopped to bring a can of food or a dollar. This way we relaxed ,enjoyed the food and helped other families!

I set up the truck with  Uncle Ben's Rice ,gifts and goodies for the party goers! I was still setting up when this picture was taken!!

Sarah and Frankie getting their Uncle Ben's goodie bag!
Some of the guys starting to dig into the Uncle Ben's Rice dishes!!

Some of the party people!!
Here comes Jimmy ,I can't forget about him! He is such a good dog!! My cats are hiding!!
We all had a wonderful time and I had people stop by all day! My camera need to be recharged ,I thought it was good to go ! Silly me!

The next day I packed up all the cans (some boxes of Uncle Ben's Rice) and money and off to the 

Preston City Congregational Church . They have a  wonderful food pantry that helps so many people !

I felt it was perfect to help. They also liked that I thought of them!

Thank you Mom Central and Uncle Ben's , making this party a huge success!

I wrote this review while participating in a Kitchen Kickoff campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Uncle Ben's. Mom Central sent me a gift card and other Uncle Ben's items to thank me for taking the time to participate.
