Twinkle was the prompt for August 7th

The night gazing people of the Daily Post division of Word Press selected the word “Twinkle” for us to create various works of art around.

Kid’s Music First

The prompt made me think of the children’s nursery rhyme Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Who Didn’t Look Up At The Sky

In awe when they were little?  On clear nights where I lived out in the country, there was a moon, many stars, and the occasional falling stars.  The two dogs and I would stand there looking up as long as my parents left us alone out there.  One of the pair was my protector.  She was a German Shepard – Golden Labrador mix who watched over me since my birth.  She literally walked me down the lane to the highway where I caught the bus to go to school each day.  She would be waiting there for me upon my return home.  I was her first “puppy”.  She had her own puppies later on the only one we kept was her son. The rest we gave to other people who were looking for dogs to adopt for their own.

What were you looking for in the sky?

I was always looking at the moon.  Watching for the occasional  falling stars.  What were you looking for?

Did the sky answer your wishes?

Did you Pursue Your Sky Dreams?

I went off to college to follow my dream of being an astronaut.  Turns out in my freshman year, I learned that there was a height requirement I had no chance of ever reaching.  So I simply gave up my dream and studied computer science, my other interest.  Found in that discipline a second career choice that suited me better than I could have ever imagined.

Network engineering became my final calling.  How else could I not only tell data where to go, but also how to get there?  I loved it!  Ended up meeting a wonderful man while in my junior year there.  We married the day after I graduated.  Have been together ever since!

We moved to different states here in the USA following our employment options.  Do not plan on ever moving again!  This place has everything either of us could wish upon a star for!

Please Help Fight Evil Disease

Found out I had the disease a little over a year after graduation from college.  The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis currently is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. If you would like to contribute to my fight against this mind stealing disease, please contribute by visiting  my personal website at http://saintpblogging.com/wp/ and seeing the copies of my writings located there!
