Daughter Home from Germany

Leah took this pic of Josh and the Alps

I am happy that my daughter, Leah, was able to take a trip to Germany with her Oma and cousin Josh.

They got to stay with Oma's sisters and family.....the family over there made sure it was a trip of a lifetime for them.

I felt like I relived when I went over there in 1986.....I was walking pretty good back then even though I had MS.....I could climb the stairs in the castles....and loved the family time.   

I enjoy talking to her about her trip but so glad she is home!

Cancer Gives Perspective

We were shocked again this find out that my (46 year old) sister has breast my cousin is starting extreme chemo in Texas.

I know that God has always helped me to get through the storms in the That gives me hope during this storm.

And Cancer sure does put things into perspective......and reminds me to take life one day at a time.

Birthday Observations - Guest Post

This is a guest post by Jennifer Digmann

Last week my close college friend, Jen, turned 40. Jen’s husband surprised her with a party and there was no way that Dan and I would have missed it. We drank a little, laughed a lot and had a great time. Once the festivities were over, I wondered about a few things.

Like when people ask me how I am doing and wonder about my MS (healthline link), do they really want the truth?

I usually answer quickly that, “I’m fine,” but this weekend I felt comfortable enough to answer a little more honestly. That honest answer seemed to make one of my dear friends uncomfortable. This surprised me because she always has been supportive of my dealing with this disease. But it made me wonder if a close friend only wants to hear about the positive stuff, do most people who ask really want to know the truth about this disease?

Either way, I know that while there are several  medications to help people with MS, there really is no medicine as good for your soul as time spent with the best of friends.

With Jen turning 40, I realized that I also will be 40 in 13 months. I felt pressure, and I’m not sure why. But I know I better get to accomplishing something. What I need to accomplish I’m not yet quite sure. I wondered is this pressure because of my upcoming milestone birthday? Or is it something else? Do you ever feel that way?
