Happy Days are Here Again!

Well its been way too long since I've added to this blog. Truthfully, up until recently things have been extremely tough. But things have taken a turn for the better and we are actually do quite well. There are still aspects that we deal with from day to day that are somewhat difficult, but they are our normal.

That's one thing I have learned, out of hundreds, that really remains true. Things aren't what they use to be, but things are normal. Its taken us a couple years to finally reach this point where MS is just a houseguest. In other words, its part of our day to day life, but its not at all what defines us.

We just celebrated our 26 wedding anniversary. What an accomplishment these days especially with our medical issues. We have found our normal, which may seem completely and utterly abnormal to most. Things I can't put into words, yet.

The grandbaby turned 1 a few months back and is the light for us. We know that she and our daughter will be constants in our lives and that is lucky for us. Lily reminds us that things aren't all that complicated. You wake up in the morning, go to the bathroom, shower, dress and eat breakfast like everybody else. We can't open her eyes to our afflictions actually we won't. We don't want her to feel like her nana and papa are ill or disabled. Not that there is anything that we have to be embarassed about, its just that we want to be her grandparents that she deserves.

One of the coolest things of late has been our family relationships. We've been pulling closer to them and its added alot to our lives. Not that we weren't close before but my parents are getting up there in age and I don't want to have any regrets with our relationship. I work with the elderly. Have for 30 yrs or so. I've seen families pull apart and when the time comes to say goodbye, the regrets seem to overcome them members that remain. I don't want that.

Well that's all for now. Except that my hubby is doing good. Working as a truckdriver still and to this day remains my hero!
