Just a little more information

Dot Day and her husband Charles live in central Mississippi with their spoiled-sweet dog Lady, a collie/shepherd/who knows what? rescued mix. They enjoy a simple lifestyle in a rural setting. Her hobbies include gardening with Charles doing 99% of the actual labor; quilting with Charles doing the cutting and some of the pressing; oil painting and forcing her messes on others. They have been involved in quilting flags of valor for a recent Wounded Warriors Project.

She holds strong Christian values and attempts to order her life in keeping with those values. She also has a passion for families and for helping them to have quality relationships. As a born-again Christian, she believes her life is to be lived in serving God by serving others. This also means she accepts the service of others as she needs them.

Dot is a retired English teacher and former licensed family and marriage therapist. Her fifties found her with a foe, a late- onset muscular dystrophy called inclusion body myositis. This debilitating disease took her from an active and involved lifestyle to one of more dependence.

She has been active as a Muscular Dystrophy Association volunteer both in fundraising and leading virtual conferences for caregivers for ALS patients. She serves also as a KIT leader (Keep in Touch) for Mississippi, Alabama, and Northwest Florida for The Myositis Association(TMA).

You may read her blogs at https://toolittletoolatedotcom.wordpress.com where she puts out some of her upcoming material. Her book BACK WHEN will continue to be updated about every two weeks, so keep checking your account and clicking on the book through August 2015. In August 2015 her next book will be available: LORD, IF I LOVE YOU, WHY AM I STILL FAT?
Dot enjoys hearing from her readers; contact her through Facebook or email her at dotday@bellsouth.net


About Dot Ainsworth Day

After 25 years in the classroom as an English teacher and over twenty years as a family therapist, I am confined to home with a muscular dystrophy and have begun to write: my family history, MEMORIES OF THE SHARECROPPER'S FAMILY, was published February 27, 2017. Through this blog, I hope you enjoy learning more about muscular dystrophy, the (ahem) joys of having a caregiver or care partner and the management of daily activities. THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR is a short story now being stretched into a novel. A TASTE FOR MURDER, a family story of murder discussed on another blog and in the family history, is still in the first draft stage. Note: Writing a novel based on real characters and avoiding offense or lawsuit is difficult enough. Its being a first novel and my learning the intricacies of dialogue and plotting​ have made for a slow learning curve.
