Leave it Behind

Call me a wimp,  criticize my morals,  judge my actions, but always know that I do my best each and every day not to get in your way.            Stop wasting valuable time in hateful emotions. 

Unless we walk in another person's shoes we will never truly KNOW who they are.
Have a great Monday, Lisa, the Lady with the Cane

I don't normally post on a Saturday, but today I'm feeling particularly vulnerable. The Miller Family reunion is this weekend and I'm missing it. I've only been absent from two other family get-togethers in my life: Oe was when I had to take my comprehensive final for my graduate degree and one was when my teenage son was away from home and the reunion site was geographically far away from him. Parents will understand that issue.
This year doesn't include a life-altering exam nor parental separation. This, the year of the VIRUS, makes us all a bit selfish I want so badly to be there in Princeton, WV, with my aunts, uncle, parents, and one brave cousin. Unfortunately, multiple sclerosis leaves my non-immune system a hot spot for any potential virus fears. And, it's not only me.  If I come into contact with it, my son and husband will also be at risk upon my return. It's just nor fair to any of us.
But, hey, life is not fair. We know that. If life was fair MS w…

I mean, really, what more can we do?
     Now more than ever, we Warriors must celebrate one another's successes. Please look at Cheryl's success. It brought tears to my eye and a smile in my heart.

Mondays are the Best!

      I have always loved Mondays. Don't judge me, just hear me out.
Monday is a new day, a new week, a re-set button. Today is an opportunity to start anew, tattoo a fresh canvas, and set new goals. It's almost like New Year's every week; so, make those resolutions and work on them in small doses. 
What are your plans for this week?
My son and I finally got a haircut yesterday, so I can finally check that off my list. He looks great. I went totally rogue and require a few days to adjust to my new boy cut. That's okay. It's only hair, right?
     He has an appointment in Morgantown on Tuesday. We both welcome the opportunity to get out of the house but approach this mini road trip with cautious, masked trepidation. In fact, I think this rebellious action will satisfy the growing restlessness of our current quarantine. 
I have a dentist appointment on Wednesday that will probably get canceled. The idea is far too revolutionary for me. I'm not quite rea…
