Muse Monday - Tiff Style


Today’s Muse Monday is dedicated to my friend Tiff.  50+ days ago, she suffered an extremely severe stroke. It was on that same day that we had just started talking about meeting up in person. Weird, right? You see, I’ve known Tiff since High School. But, we didn’t reconnect until a few years ago. We started following each other on twitter and facebook, commenting on each other’s post regularly. She is the most inspiring person I know, even if we haven’t “seen” each other since high school. She greets every day with a positive attitude, sees the good in all things, and has this great I’m going to kick ass today and nothing is going to slow me down attitude! Oh, and did I mention she loves heels, fashion and all things fabulous? A girl after my own heart.


I read her CaringBridge page everyday and continue to be amazed at the progress she has made. Even her doctors are impressed with how dedicated she is to recovering from this debilitating stroke. She has a long recovery road ahead of her, but I know she will fight all the obstacles that are in her way. I’d been waiting to make her a card as I wanted inspiration to guide me through the process. Today,inspiration struck. It’s simple and to the point, but I know she will like (I used her favorite color-pink!).  Take some time today to send positive thoughts to Tiff. She could really use them!
