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 would not exist, Covid 19 would not exist, cancer wouldn't exist...
If life was fair I would be sitting on the porch with my family right now instead of at my computer.
If life was fair, those dirty dishes in the kitchen would already be clean.
So, rather than moping about, I need to get productive today, kind of like the MS Warrior in this article below:

In fact, today feels like a good day to write another book!
Have a good weekend,
