January 20, 2015 is a day that changed my life in so many ways. Yes, I’d give it back if given the chance because ALS sucks, but hear me when I say that not everything that it has brought into my life has been bad.
I’m busy, you know it, I know it, ALS fights it, but at the end of the day it’s still true. I chose to slow down and celebrate this day because there will be harder days ahead, and why on earth wouldn’t you chose celebration? It’s where the cake is (hopefully) and smiles and hugs – celebration is life.
Ain’t that the truth? Today, I celebrate. Today, I seek inspiration. Today, I love. What have I always asked of you? Hug me as soon as you can and love me through this.
Happy year 3 of kick’n ass and takin’ names <3! Thank you for loving me, us, through this. Thank you for being our home, our support system, our foundation. Thank you for dancing this dance with me.
“Home is watching the moon rise over the open, sleeping land and having someone you can call to the window, so you can look together. Home is where you dance with others, and dancing is life.” Stephen King, 11.22.63
