I find it astonishing how many different illnesses or causes are acknowledged during the course of a year. Throughout the rest of this year, I would like to talk a little about each month’s awareness that is recognized because I think it will give all of us a little more knowledge on the subject. Now like I stated, there are multiple different acknowledgements so I probably can not touch on all of them each month, but I will choose the most either closest to my heart or not as well-known.
I hope y’all had a great day today! I do not know about you, but I am SO happy tomorrow is Friday! It has been a very long week filled with many headaches and other pains. I hope that next week is going to be a better week with a lot less pain and stress. Of course as y’all already know, I do believe that a positive mind will bring much happiness and good days in the future. So I will continue to always stay positive because there is no room for negativity in my life!
Thank y’all for stopping by today! Please let me know what you think of my plan for the rest of this year to talk about each awareness month! I always love hearing your feedback because your comments are so very interesting and helpful! I hope y’all have a great and relaxing evening. As always, I am sending you lots of love, comfort and warmth to those of you dealing with snow!
