uess-what-its-friday-eve-chankscats-happy-friday-eve-guys-17457852I am so sorry for the delay on my Pick-Me-Up-Thursday quote. I think the holiday has me a little behind on what day it is! I hope y’all are doing well and I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! 

I find the quote I am sharing with y’all today incredibly true. Life gets so complicated and living with a chronic illness  can add to the difficulties. I have promised myself for years to never give up, as y’all already know that is the only way we can really fail! I hope you find this quote helpful and it adds a little ❤ inspiration to your day!inspirational-encouragement-quotes

❤My husband and I were able to spend time with his side of the family on Tuesday and my mother and step-father were able to come spend time with us yesterday and see our new home. ❤It was great to be able to see everyone that we ❤ love and reconnect! Y’all already know that I live with Multiple Sclerosis, but my dear sweet step father has to live withfamily is everything Parkinson’s disease. I know it isn’t easy for my step father and I do my best to add some light and encouragement to his life. I do know that MS and Parkinson’s are very different, but I try to explain to him every time I see or speak to him just how I have managed for 19 years with MS, which seems to help temporarily!

It doesn’t really matter what chronic illness someone is living with, all of us need to find encouragement ❤ and inspiration whenever and Princess-quote-helen-kellerwherever possible. I am able to find relaxation and happiness with writing and crocheting, but sadly my step father’s hobby was building model airplanes, which due to his condition he finds too difficult. When he told us yesterday he can’t do his hobby anymore because his hands shake too much, it broke my heart. I tried telling him that it doesn’t matter how quickly he builds the planes, but he could build them slowly and take breaks whenever he needed to. I am hoping he will actually listen and NOT give up on something that einstein-on-lifemakes him happy.

I hope y’all are feeling well and you are able to enjoy the weekend that is coming. We have another holiday we can enjoy and hopefully 2019 will be a great year! 2018 went by so damn fast and was a bit of a struggle, so maybe this new year will slow down and bring all of us LOTS of happiness and amazing times! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

My signature heart

❤Always, Alyssa❤

  2. As always, a wonderful post! It’s always a good idea to be reminded of what’s possible and that not giving up is the best way to live.

    I’m so glad that you had a good holiday with family! I am sorry for your step-father; I’m sure he’s crushed because of this, but I sincerely hope that he takes your advice to heart and keeps going.

    My father-in-law has ankylosing spondylitis and his neck is completely fused, to the point that he can’t move it at all. I know that he is miserable, but he inspires me because he still gets up every day and works painting houses or pressure washing or doing minor home improvements. Of course, with arthritis staying still hurts more than moving, but I watch him and see that if he can do it, so can I.

    I hope you are feeling well and that you have a great New Year! ❤

    • Thank you so much Hillary! I am so happy to see that you enjoyed this post!

      I know you are correct that he is crushed that he can’t work with his model planes, but he tries hard to hide it. I think I know him too well and can see the disappointment in him and that makes me so sad.

      Your father -in-law sounds like a strong man. I sometimes think that men are stubborn and refuse to back down to anything, which can be a good thing and also bad.

      I really hope you are doing well and life is treating you right! Life gets so darn busy and I end up missing chatting with great people like yourself! I hope you are ready for the New Year and feeling great!!
