Open The Toy Box

Read a book and pass it on...
Tell a story and pass it on…

My cave has a toy box, book shelf and desk to write this whimsical blog that has a sense of humor written into life – – –

Reconciling my
‘Once Upon a Time’ with my ‘Happily Ever After’…

…with short streams of consciousness about my family, childhood memories, thrifting, living in New England and other humorous, fictionalized reflections of my life experiences.

Why Ms Toy Whisperer?

This isn’t about being someone’s wife. It’s all for me and about me. Mrs. just wouldn’t work. Also, once upon a time, as a new Mom, I was diagnosed with MS. That’s the Ms.

As for the toys, I loved them in my childhood.  I also loved them during my girl’s childhood.  When the girls were young, the book shelf was right next to the toy box.  Books were some of their favorite toys.  They not only read them, our girls chewed them, stacked them and colored in them (don’t worry, just the coloring books). Reading time was our favorite part of the day. I am now an empty-nester-dealer whom sells books and toys. That’s the Toy part.

I am  a good listener and a simple soul. When I started this blog, I had just learned how important those traits are in our lifetime. I heard the whispers of the Holy Spirit and it is now my greatest strength. That is the Whisperer part.

I am MS TOY WHISPERER – a grand part of my happily ever after.

Thanks for visiting!

What do I support?

Multiple Sclerosis awareness – MS is a potentially debilitating disease in which your body’s immune system eats away at the protective covering of your nerves. Damage to it causes interference in the connection between your brain, spinal cord and other areas of your body.

Literacy – access to books is the single largest barrier to literacy. In low-income homes, there is 1 book for every 300 children.

Writing – any writing, all writing.

Your Inner Child – accept it and embrace it;  growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.

Like the fight against MS, I want to ensure I always have a connection.  I want to tell you about my family and what fills my days.  I want to promote books and toys and being silly. I want you to take the  time to read – and listen.  This blog connects all of those things.
