Living in the slow lane!

One thing is for certain….living with Multiple Sclerosis has moved me into the slow lane. By that I mean I reside in a place of rest, relaxation and calm and nothing is urgent. I have to take my energy as it comes. It’s not something I have a lot of and it’s not a frequent […]

A Different kind of Mother’s Day!

No less important….actually, I think even more important…..but celebrated today in a very different way than we have been accustom to for generations. There is no special family gathering to celebrate Mom. There is no Sunday brunch at her favourite restaurant to celebrate Mom. Mother’s Day is a really important day at the best of […]

Wow….it’s that time of year again. My mother always told me that life goes by faster as we get older. With Christmas upon us again, I’m inclined to agree with her analogy in this regard. It seems like Christmas 2018 just passed and here we are at Christmas 2019. Speaking about my Mom….my beautiful and […]

A good life lesson

I’m always looking for a good life lesson….a story about someone who has overcome adversity, or a lesson shared between a parent and a child to teach the child how to live strong and compassionate and well. There are so many life lessons out there to grab onto. If you are looking for them you […]
