It’s Christmas morning. I woke up and my first thought was of you. It wasn’t about multiple sclerosis and all the crazy things going on in my life because of it, it wasn’t about family that will be coming over later in the day, it wasn’t about the news and all that’s happening around the world right now, it wasn’t even about the fact that I really need some creamer from the store to get me through the rest of the week.
No, it was about you and hoping that today is a good day for you. Hoping that no matter what is going on, who you see of don’t see, what gifts you get of don’t get, what symptoms rear their ugly head to try and deter you from enjoying the day, that you see just how amazing you really are. Because I happen to think you are.
It’s amazing how even on our worst days we can still start our day off with a smile…by choice. And I hope I am able to be the source of your smile today. I hope that smiles far out way tears today and that you give yourself a break from all the chaos happening around you to enjoy the good moments scattered in the mix.
I know it’s not easy to smile when you’re hurting but today is a new day…and you look so much better when you smile. You can’t give up. You just can’t. Smile!
Merry Christmas to you and yours…
