Pamper your MS today. It's been working hard.




But it is difficult, isn't it?
I was supposed to attend a meeting at a local post office today to get information about obtaining new passports for my family. The content of the meeting sounded really interesting and my husband and I have talked often about updating our travel vouchers and getting one for our son. Even in these days of terrorist threat and airport dangers, we realize that travel is inevitable and often necessary. So, I agreed to attend this Passport Fair to educated us on the how's.

Well, after re-reading the newspaper advertisement for the event this morning, I realized that, though the Fair sounded interesting, I really did not need to remove myself from my home today in order to obtain a renewed passport. Passports are issued every day with out the assistance of a public gathering. And.....we do not plan on leaving the country in the foreseeable future....if ever!

So, why would I even entertain the thought of getting all dolled up (aka putting on clean underwear) to leave the house when it really wasn't necessary.

Message: Prioritize the important things. And the important people.
Today is MY day. And I will not waste it explaining why it is so.

Have a good one,
Lisa

MS Awareness Month: The Letter K

K is for keeping up with Jones's. 
Get rid of this philosophy RIGHT NOW. You are special. You are unique. You are a Warrior. You are a Super Star. MS does not define you. 

We have enough on our plates without worrying about without the rest of the coming and goings in our neighborhood, church, community, family. So what if Bubba got a new ski boat or Nibby Neighbor Nancy is planning - loudly - her spring cruise. I celebrate daily getting out of bed. No, I am not downplaying the excitement surrounding these happy moments in the lives of those folks we know. As MS Warriors, we sometimes need to remember that life hold more bonuses than money can buy.

This morning I am reminded that spring is on its way. Sure, I saw the news and I am well aware of the snow storm that promises to pelt our country in a few hours. I am ready. Milk in the fridge. Bread in the pantry. Flashlights battered up. But, behind that storm is spring and my favorite scent of all times: lilac. Don't ya just love t…

The N of MS.

N is for not allowing MS to win. This easy. Refer to A-M and O-Z.

As MS Warriors it is our job, our responsibility, and our mission to provide information, support, insight, and understanding to this ridiculous disease.

#WeAreStrongerThanMS

When I say we need to provide information, I am not just talking about clinical research and statistics. If you are living with MS or are close to someone with the MonSter, you have more information than can be found on the internet. YOU are the expert. YOU are the prime resource for what's what in this crazy land of MS. You experience(s) is invaluable.

Supporting the fight against MS wears many hats. Sure, you can make a monetary donation, but that is not always feasible in this tight-budget minded world. I am definitely preaching to the choir here. As a retired school teacher, I am facing quite a few unplanned expenses. No, money is not the only way, or necessarily the best way to offer assist…

This Writer's Euphoric Journey

It is November and that means National Novel Writing Month. I participate every year. As always, I am behind on my writing goal for the month: WRITE 50,000 WORDS  IN 30 DAYS. 

With only two days to go, I still need 10,000 to finish. 

So...I will see you here again on Wednesday or at the end of my journey of 50,000 words. Until then, breathe.
