Heart Matters

I'm so proud of my momma...she is one of the new voices of the American Heart Association. Of course, she is going to be one of the best they ever had! :) Those who know her know what a great writer and speaker she is. I could never do what she does and I am so proud to be her daughter and friend!

Five years ago my sweet mom had her first heart attack. At the tender age of 50...(right, Mom?) Then just last year she had another one.....scared us all, again. We do know that she has heart disease and that she is one lucky woman to have survived not one but two massive heart attacks.

She has made the decision to retire next year. I know she will miss the kids and the ladies that she has worked with for 30 years. I do know this was a decision to help her get healthier and have time to do the things that she wants to do. She is always so giving of her time to everyone else and now it's time for some time for herself. She can also spend more time with family...we have a lot of babies to rock, baseball games to see and dance recitals to attend...and all the while help more people understand the seriousness of heart disease.

We have always said that God isn't finished with her yet, and we are so glad. I think this new deal is right up her alley and I couldn't be happier for her......You go get 'em, Momma. I love you.

For more information, please go to http://www.americanheart.org/. Together we can make a difference. And, please.....love your heart because our hearts matter!! :)

Go Mom!

Mr. Helmcamp always did like the speeches you wrote for me in Speech class. He always said, "Ashley, tell your mother she did another fabulous job." HA!

How exciting for your mom! I'd love to hear her in action. Even though retiring will be a big change, I bope it gives her the opportunity to do all the things she wants to do!

Hey sweetheart......or as your dad says, sweatheart.....if eat is pronounced long E - a - t then ...oh well you know.....thanks for the words. It's not really that big of a deal. Oprah hasn't called yet. I love you.

Oh yes, your Mama (my sister) is fearless. Speeches? Makes my knees shake just to think about it! Doesn't she look beautiful in her red, too? You should have a picture, though, that showed her red shoes...they were great! Love you, JoJo
