Profile Information

Hello Readers,

         I am Lady Jewells. That's what name I slurred to the paramedic, who had asked me if I knew my name. The paramedics had been called by my daughter and were trying to assess me, to determine my level of impairmentOne of the paramedics had asked me my name, but I had no idea what my name was for several seconds. Then in a moment of clarity, a name came into my mind in pieces.. "Laa Mmm Laad, Mmm Laaady Jew-el-ls.   My head hurt something awful and I was having another stroke.  Later I told him the date was.. June 4, 1999!

Of course it wasn't, the real date was June 4th, 2009!!!  AS it turns out, Lady Jewells was and is my pen name.

Life had been more stressful earlier that school year, and migraines were the norm. But it was summer and life was just getting better until June 4th, 2009, when I suffered an acute ischemic stroke to my left frontal lobe. Ever the comedian, I choose to make the best of Life's Lemon's. So just visualize Jethro Gibb's from NCIS - Slapping Tony on the back of the Head! Wake-up! Jethro played the part of GOD. God had decided I needed to WAKE UP & change directions...

In less than 15 minutes of time - God took me out of my classroom, to teach the world to love better.

Strokes do damage - Mine was no different, but in some ways it was very different. For starters, I died. In those few prescious moments when I was pain free, I have never felt more loved than I did in that moment. OhMyGawd! And What happened next, I am still processing. But suffice to say, my stroke was a life changing event. The story, Lady Jewells Has a Stroke is just the beginning..

The Wellness Plan... The Great Spirit said, "Change the Message and the behavior  will change. Love me as you love yourself. Just share your love."

In approximately 15 minutes, I lost 10 years of memories, partial use of my right-side and a chunk of basic skills... I needed Speech Therapy, computer skills, reading and writing skills and physical therapy.

I believe in the law of attraction. I believe in the Secret.  The Great Spirit had told me I would heal - all I needed was faith. Healing Opportunities will come - walk towards it.  There are 1000's of teachers to teach me about Life. The Great Spirit said, Life is a journey; Walk, observe, listen and trade your truths.

Therefore the writings posted here on Booksie and Booksie Silk, are stories I've written - as I am Trying on Life.  Consider it, sort of Dress Rehearsal, per se.  I wanted to be loved and feel loved again... So I became an Actress..on paper.  A friend told me, if you don't write in first person, you will never learn to walk again!! Visualize it, "Stand in 1st person's perspective and live in that moment."  My old friends were living life. But I couldn't even walk without my cane!!...

Road trips helped me find old Friends and make new ones.  And as I became more computer literate, I met new friends on social media - Facebook. 

Life is about Living....Facebook taught me how to live again - Talk to me & Teach me! - (Think about the Movie, "Nemo!"  - "Just keep Swimming!" ) ...The stories written here are memories, fantansies, thoughts & my Truths about life, post stroke.  I am evolving.

By writing -  I am weaving a path of wellness and my legacy is a trail of jewels, bits of wisdom and just fun. 

To me, My writings are my gifts to the world - I want my stories to spark ideas in other people. 

"My truth may not be your truth." Because Our truths are colored by our perspective, our emotions, our education, our culture, and our spiritual foundations. Loving and living is about learning to love who you are and to respect our differences.

 To many people, I am a gift of perspective and love.

I have lived a full and storied life. I walk a positive path of wellness.   ** Have Faith... *** THe Great Spirit is in everything and everyone!!

~~June 4th, 2021 was my 12 year anniversary... My stroke was a blessing in disguise. I was blessed.

Come walk with me and love... Come walk with me and laugh.  Really Laugh.

Until our paths cross or our shadows meet, I wish you good health and wellness.

Enjoy life......I am, Lady Jewells
