Ive never met you but I had tears in my eyes reading this. Your story is one of hope and joy and it is a blessing and privilege to feel like a "friend" over the last few years through your blog.
You are remarkable. I will continue to pray for God's blessings over your life.


I have read your blog ever since your stroke. Don't remember how I found it, but you continue to amaze me.

Oh, Joanne, this is such awesome news! It has me in happy tears! I can't marine how much difference this is making in your self-esteem as well as in your everyday-life-journey! You have endured so MUCH, and once again, GOD is SO FAITHFUL! I am just praising HIM and feel such gratitude to HIM and to the company that helped make this REALLY BIG DEAL POSSIBLE!


This is awesome! Go technology. I hope one of your new pairs of shoes is red. Love you friend. Enjoy the sun!


I can't wait to see it in action. How wonderful it must feel to wear shoes you like. I'm glad it worked out to get one.


You are one step ahead and your popping now....

So exciting. Saw your show pictures on Facebook so had to come look for an update on your blog. :)

I am so excited to hear about your five new pairs of shoes, but more importantly the 'normalness' that technology is bringing to your life. You continue to breath His words in my life by sharing yours. Thank you.
