Challenges with Multiple Sclerosis

I think y’all already know that I have had Multiple Sclerosis for over 20 years and for the most part I am still going strong. Honestly, some days are worse than others and most issues are triggered by either the weather or stress. I do not like having a pity party but wanted to quickly explain what I think are some of the most challenging aspects that come with this illness. Thankfully, over the years I have been able to get a much clearer understanding of what MS is and what it can do to a person. Crazy as this might sound, this has been good because when I was diagnosed, I was very ignorant to this illness and had an immature mind, but I was young and that is my excuse for my childlike thought process.

Of course, I do know it could always be worse and I am thankful it is not any worse than it is, but that does not mean it is not challenging and frustrating. The issues I am going to explain are not in order because I cannot say one is more challenging than the other, as they can all be grueling. No matter how challenging and or frustrating these issues are, most can be managed or at least I try to ignore them.

Multiple Sclerosis can be incredibly unpredictable, which can be burdensome. Never knowing what to expect or when it is going to strike is unnerving. It is embedded in my mind to have things planned but living with the unpredictability of MS can force plans to be altered or cancelled. Of course, with COVID there have not been many outings planned and I work from home, so life just keep moving along.

This illness is not something new and even though there have been vast amounts of research done, a cure has not been discovered. I dream that a day will come when I wake from the nightmare of Multiple Sclerosis and I will not have anymore pain, weakness, numbness in my legs and feet, dizzy spells, or any of the other awful symptoms caused by MS.

Another issue that can be exhausting is the constant pain I feel in my legs and mid to lower back. This has been something the MS caused since I was diagnosed, so I try to not allow it to impact my daily life too much, but it does still cause difficulties. I would say the leg pain is a lot harder to deal with than the back pain because leg pain makes moving around extremely laborious. The back pain is awful, but most of the time a heating pad helps relax the muscles.

I also experience neuropathy in my legs and feet, which causes an annoying tingling sensation. This issue is not easy to ignore because it is constant. It does not bother me as bad during the day but gets increasingly worse at night. The tingling feels like spiders crawling around my legs and feet and not too much decreases this issue. The neuropathy issue makes falling asleep and staying asleep very challenging.

Another issue I battle with is fatigue. It does not matter how much sleep I get, which is never as much as it should be, I am always tired. I have noticed this gets worse towards the afternoon and I start losing my focus because I am exhausted. I arrange my work tasks, so the most in-depth things are handled in the morning when I am the most alert.

The hug I never want is called the MS hug. Thankfully, this is not something I deal with daily, but when I do it is miserable. It kind of feels like there is a snake wrapped around my abdomen and continues to squeeze. It is uncomfortable and painful. For the past few days, I have been battling with this and ignoring it is not making it stop. However, I do think my specialist is on a need to know and I do not think she needs to know about this because I do not want her trying to force steroids on me as that alone makes me feel terrible.

Although I have lived with this disease for over 20 years, some of the fears I had in the beginning do still haunt me. I wonder will there ever be a cure, how much longer will I be able to walk for until I am in a wheelchair, is this disease going to end my life someday, and many more questions run through my mind. Even with all the unanswered questions, I am still never going to give up and allow the MS to win the war we have been fighting.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have enjoyed your weekend and you were able to do what brings you the most joy. I hope what I have shared with you today will be give you some comfort and help you with something you are dealing with. I do not normally share posts that might come across as complaining, but I do want everyone reading to know that no matter what you might be struggling with, there is someone that understand. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

How you can stay comfortable during colder months

Multiple Sclerosis is a unique and frustrating illness to live with. When you add in the effects different temperatures can create, Multiple Sclerosis can become three times as frustrating. Each season seems to be followed by different challenges. Of course, the heat acts like kryptonite for Multiple Sclerosis and can cause symptoms to worsen. Unfortunately, extreme heat can also create new symptoms to be exposed. When someone with MS is exposed to heat, they may experience fatigue, numbness, blurred vision, tremors, confusion, weakness, and balance issues.

When the seasons change from hot to cold, those with MS are forced to battle with other issues. Cold weather causes people with or without MS to become tense. The increased tension of the muscles can cause increased spasms, muscles feeling tighter, and difficulties moving limbs.

I have lived with Multiple Sclerosis for over 20 years, and I live in an area that seems to only have two and a half seasons. This may not make sense, but I say this because the temperatures are either insanely hot for about nine months, slightly chilly for about one month, and mildly cold for two months. Some people are fortunate enough to have four true seasons and hopefully experience at least one season where they are comfortable.

When seasons bring on various challenges it is crucial to discover ways to stay well and as healthy as possible. First, we need to allow our bodies time to adjust to the differences, especially when going from extreme heat to bitter cold. This is something that cannot be rushed and will play out according to how it does.

For anyone that lives with the same medical issue as I do, Multiple Sclerosis, I am going to share a few tips that can help you stay both comfortable and warm during the colder months. If your symptoms worsen with colder temperatures, please know this should be short-lived discomfort. The following tips may be helpful for you even if you do not have MS and deal with another medical issue. I have experienced issues with temperatures more than I care to admit, but these tips helped me stay as comfortable as I can.

The first tip I have, please understand will not always be easy. Sometimes when we make simple alterations, it can make hard tasks a little easier. Even when it seems impossible, try to keep moving. Try simple and moderate physical activities, such as short walks or stretching. This tip helps you to burn energy and keep you warmer.

The second tip might take experimenting with different types of clothing. Dressing in layers helps you to stay warm and allows you to remove clothing when you get too warm. The challenges involved in determining the right clothing will be how many layers is not enough, too much, or finally just right! Wearing a hat will keep your head warm. Wearing lined boots or socks will keep your feet warm. Hats and socks will not allow heat to escape from your head or feet, which assists with keeping the rest of you warm.

The third tip I am going to share is that it is important to keep your hands and feet warm. For those of you with Multiple Sclerosis, doctors believe that MS causes blood vessels in the hands and feet to overreact to cold temperatures. To protect your hands and feet from negative effects from cold temperatures, try using hand warmers or a heating pad. REMEMBER to use CAUTION when using a heating pad and to avoid blisters, do not apply heating pad directly to your skin.

On a side note, if you do have MS, you may be at risk for Raynaud’s phenomenon. This is a condition that causes your fingers and toes to lose heat. This can cause your fingers and toes to turn from white to blue to red as the blood starts to flow again. With this condition, you may feel numbness, pain, or feel as though someone is sticking you with pins and needles, which is an awful feeling.

The fourth tip to staying comfortable during the colder months is to warm your insides. During colder months it is easy to have a hot meal, such as soup. Plus, you can sip on hot drinks like coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and pour whatever your preferred beverage into an insulated mug. This will keep your drink warm longer and reduce trips to the kitchen to warm your drink.

Lastly, even on those crisp fall days or bitterly cold winter days, getting sunshine can warm you up. Simply walking outside for a short time to soak in some rays from the sun can be beneficial. Getting a little such sunshine can warm you up, allow your body to absorb some much-needed Vitamin D, and may boost your mood.

I am sure there are many other ways to stay warm and comfortable during the colder months, but these are the ones I know work for me. I would love to read any other suggestions you may have of things that have helped you. It is not too cold where I live, but I am sure it will happen in the next few months. Honestly, the temperatures are comfortable right now, if only the rain would not come back. Even if it is not cold, the rain always makes me feel terrible!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you found the information I have shared helpful, and I am looking forward to reading your comments. I promise I will respond to all comments as quickly as I can, but it will probably be once I am out of work. Please continue to do everything you can to stay safe from the virus that continues to plague the world. I do know the numbers are decreasing as more get vaccinated, but it is still a little terrifying. I hope you never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Motivational Monday

Welcoming Monday back is not an easy thing to do, especially when the weekend went by fast and you might have not felt well. It is exceptionally difficult for me beginning the week because as I already said in my last post I felt awful all weekend because of getting the 3rd COVID vaccine, which I still do not regret getting. The truth is sometimes in life we must do things that are not enjoyable, but do them for good reasons. Our lives are full of choices we have to make and we should make these choices to the best of our abilities and try to never live with any kind of regrets.

I am sure none of us are completely ready for a new week, but that choice is completely out of our control. However, what is within our control is the way we move forward with the week and the way we view each day. Our attitudes whether positive or negative can be extremely contagious. This can be difficult to remember on Monday or if you are not feeling 100%. I decided to share the quote I did with you to help you never forget there are only a few things in life we have control over and those are the only things we should always try to make the best we can! Of course, the way we feel about certain circumstances is hard to view in a positive light and all we can do is try because the only time we will fail is by not trying! It is also important to not be overly hard on yourself because that does not do any good for you or anyone else in your life!

I do hope you had a good and safe weekend. Unfortunately, the weekends go by so fast and it can be challenging to accomplish everything we want. Try not to get too upset about what was not done because you can always try again next weekend or another day during the week. Always do your best to remain positive and know you can do anything you set your mind to.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have a good day and that you week only continues to get better with each day that passes. I know I say this in every post, but I hope you never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes.

Third Vaccine Successful

I have already made it well-known how upsetting I have found the COVID-19 virus and those that are refusing to get the vaccine that is free. My husband and I both got the first two vaccines as soon as we were able, which was at the beginning of the year. On Friday after work, we both got the third vaccine/booster. After the first two vaccines, the only side effect that was felt was fatigue. Of course, I received the 2nd vaccine shortly after we lost our cat Chloe and that could have been where some of the fatigue was coming from, or it could have been the vaccine.

I am not sharing the following information to deter anyone from getting the vaccine but am going to share my experience. I felt fine on Friday evening and only had a little soreness on the arm where the injection was given. Unfortunately, starting first thing Saturday morning I started feeling fatigued, had a massive headache, and body aches. I think I might have slept on and off all day Saturday, which was good to allow for my body to heal. Thankfully, on Sunday morning the headache and body ache started to ease, but I do still do not feel 100%. In a strange way, I think this is a good thing because it shows my immune system is reacting to the vaccine, which did not do as much with the first two.

I did share before that I get the anti-bodies test done, which showed that I did not have any antibodies to the COVID virus several months after I had the first two vaccines and that was upsetting. It was frustrating that I was doing everything possible to not only stay safe and keep others safe but had NO antibodies. We have all heard on the news about people that were fully vaccinated ending up in the hospital or worst losing their life from the virus. However, it is far more likely for those that were not vaccinated to end up at the losing end of their fight with the virus. I hate to sound so harsh, but those refusing a free vaccine that loses their life due to the virus is no one’s fault but their own.

Even though I have felt so terrible all weekend, I do not regret getting the vaccine. I think it is much better to suffer a few days of feeling bad rather than losing my life. I am feeling a lot better today than I did yesterday, so I think I did the right thing by getting the 3rd vaccine and would still encourage everyone to do so. My husband did not experience the same side effects that I did and only battled with fatigue. Considering I am immunocompromised because of the medication I take for Multiple Sclerosis; I strongly feel we needed to take all precautions.

I cannot force anyone to get the vaccine, but I also know y’all are kind, caring, and compassionate people that would not want to get this virus or cause anyone else to deal with it. So, with that said, I will encourage you to get fully vaccinated! We all hold the power to do what is right and save lives by getting a vaccine that is free and easy to do. I do understand that it can be a little uncomfortable and scary, but the vaccine does not typically kill people and the virus continues to do so.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I know the topic I discuss is very controversial, but I think it is very important. Of course, I was not able to do a few things I wanted to do this weekend because I have not felt well, but at least I did something I feel is important and there will be other weekends where I can do other things, I was not able to do this weekend. I do look forward to reading your comments and will respond as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Inspirational Wednesday

It is no fun to only view today as Wednesday! It is better to view today as making it to the halfway part of the week, which means we are much closer to the weekend we all look forward to! How has your week been so far? I think y’all know that my week did not start all that great, but I also think dwelling on the negative does not help anyone. Everything unpleasant on Monday and Tuesday cannot define how my week will stay.

I have decided to let go of most of the issues I was upset about early in the week. However, I am still terribly upset and frustrated about how awful the country I was born and raised in has allowed a deadly virus to continue to remain. The vaccine and masks are helping to end the spread and in turn not enable new variants. The question I would love to ask those saying mask and vaccine mandates are threatening their freedom is, why are there speed limits and seatbelt requirements? Are the speed limits and law of seatbelts not threatening their freedom as well? My guess is their answer would be that seatbelts and speed limits save lives, well so does the vaccine and masks!

Considering we have made it to the halfway point of this week and we only have a couple of days left until the weekend returns, we could all use a little inspiration to help us! Within each of us lies talents that do amazing things for others. Our determination and attitudes towards life can determine how far we are willing to go to accomplish things that are important to us. No two people share the same talents, which is why our differences should be celebrated and cherished! I hope the quote I have shared has provided you with the inspiration it was intended for. I do look forward to reading your thoughts on this and will respond to all comments as quickly as I can!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope your week is going great and you are staying safe! I know sometimes my responses to your fantastic comments take me a little while, but it is only because after a full day of work I am rather tired and want to be sure I respond in the best way possible. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Tranquil Tuesday

The good news is, we made it through Monday! How was your Monday? I will always be open and honest with y’all, so with that said yesterday was not one of those days I want to live through again. It started off waking up about 10 minutes before my alarm was going to go off, but not wanting to get up yet I was able to fall back to sleep, only to be awoken by the annoying and shrilling sound of the alarm. I would almost say it would have been better if I just stayed awake when I woke up before the alarm. I cannot stand the sound of an alarm clock and the sound of a microwave fills me with the same level of aggravation.

After the alarm annoyance, my workday did not get much better. It was busy and I do like it best like that, but the work was as aggravating as the first part of my morning. I continued running into issues with my work and was not able to get the clarification I needed. Normally, when I have an issue with one part of work I move on to something different, but the trend of negative continued. I guess the old saying when it rains it pours is not just a silly cliché, but incredibly true!

Now that we did make it through Monday, Tuesday is a new day and hopefully, it will be better! During the past eighteen months, it has been challenging to find real tranquility, but we need to continue trying. The quote I am sharing today might provide some clarity on ways to find calm and peace! Sometimes when we face continuous challenges, it might be a good time to try seeing what the common denominator is and eliminate that aspect. It is crucial to try living the best life we can and we need to do what is best for our mental wellbeing. I would love to know what your take from this quote was and promise to respond to all comments as soon as I can.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have a great and safe day! We all can agree that life can be challenging, but we are able to make some decisions to help make things better. Whatever mistakes we have made, we grow from and whatever choices we make in life, it is okay to change your mind! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Motivational Monday with a Twist!

Happy Monday y’all! I hope you were able to have a relaxing and safe weekend. My weekend was decent, and a few things occurred the needed to. This will make more sense later in this post. I normally try to only share a motivational quote to start the week with a good mindset, which I am going to still do however, there are a few other things I would like to share with you.

In a previous post, I mentioned that I allow things to bottle up inside because I do not want to cause anyone else to feel overwhelmed and or upset, and I do not enjoy conflict. Well over the weekend through many tears I finally shared how I was feeling about a few things with another person. I think everything I was bottling up deep in my mind and heart just overflowed and I could not keep my emotions to myself any longer. It was not an easy conversation, but if we do not tell someone how we are feeling, how will anything improve? Nothing is ever going to get better when we are not 100% honest with how we are feeling!

I know y’all will not be surprised to see how incredibly frustrated I am with COVID-19. The number of people that still think this deadly virus is not a big deal is insane! Others that think mask mandates are taking away their freedom are beyond ridiculous. Seriously, what about the people that are elderly or have a weak immune system or anything else that causes them to be an easy target for this virus to kill, do they not deserve the freedom to survive? I cannot and never will understand anyone that refuses to get the vaccine. The vaccine is FREE and does not take long and it helps to END the spread of a deadly virus and even helps to NOT allow other variants to come into our lives. I have already received 2 vaccines and have an appointment scheduled for Friday after work to get the 3rd vaccine. I take pride in not only keeping myself safe from this virus but other humans from being infected and potentially not surviving.

It is going to take everyone joining together to fight against COVID or we will never be free from it. I want to be able to live again and not be a prisoner in my house because the truth is, these past 18 months have been miserable. Do not get me wrong, I love my home and being with my husband and 3 cats, but it does feel like the walls are caving in and there are times it is not easy to breathe. I am tired of being angry with the virus and people that are not doing what is right and angry with the political lies!

I think that is all for my rant about the issues in life and the world because we are starting a new week and need to begin the week with optimism. I hope you will find comfort, strength, and motivation in the quote I am sharing with you today. I would love to read what you think about this quote because I enjoy the communications we have and will respond to all comments as quickly as I can!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site today. I hope your week begins great and only gets better with each day that passes. No matter what happens today, please do everything you can to stay safe and not allow anyone to bring you down because y’all are worth more than that! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Let It Go Friday

I can finally say, happy Friday y’all! How was your week? I hope you had a great week and you are looking forward to the weekend ahead of us. I do not think I could ever explain how glad I am this week is over. It has been a crazy and busy week, both at work and at home. Our poor cat was sick last weekend but was able to see his doctor on Monday. I knew he had another infection and thankfully the antibiotic he received has helped him to recover. He has been on medication for his asthma for years, but we are going to reduce the steroid because that could be the reason he continues getting sick. I think y’all know that I prefer my workdays to be busy, but with everything else going on in life, I really need a break!

Friday is always the end of the week and it is the perfect day to try letting go of the negative feelings the week has caused, so we can enjoy the short weekend. Truthfully, there are too many things to let go of, but also too much to dwell on. I used to be the kind of person that would hold onto my negative feelings and let them build up way too much, but as I have grown I know when something is worth it and when it is not worth the additional stress. I hope the quote I am sharing will help you deal with the challenges you faced this past week. With the many frustrating times I dealt with, this quote helped to lighten my mind.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I shared and look forward to reading your comments, which I will respond to as quickly as I can. I hope you have a great day and your weekend is filled with everything that brings you the most joy. I know I am not the only one that is beyond sick of COVID and ready for this to be over, but I know that is not going to happen until everyone is vaccinated to end the chance of more variants showing up. Okay, enough with the negative, I guess anything is possible. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes.

Steps to Forgiveness

Forgiveness is not always the easiest thing to accomplish. You might feel as though you will never get over the pain someone else has caused with their wrongdoings. Even once the initial and immediate anger lessens, you may dwell on the betrayal you felt, instead of allowing it to fade away and become a distant bad memory.

The challenges that accompany forgiveness are in part because it is not well understood. Many think to forgive someone means you forget what took place or say the pain inflicted was not too bad and not a big deal or you can resume the relationship you once had immediately. None of this is completely true about forgiveness. It is more about letting go of your anger, hurt, and the need to seek revenge.

It is important to understand when we forgive another person for their hurtful, disappointments, deceitfulness, or any other negative act, we are not forgiving them for their benefit, but instead for ourselves. There may be a lengthy process when we decide to forgive, and this process cannot be rushed, or we will never be successful in forgiving anyone.

The first step is to uncover your anger. Unfortunately, in our society and cultures, anger is often hidden until and unless it explodes into full-blown rage. Everyone experiences anger, especially when we deal with betrayal, but many bottles those feeling up and hide them from others, and even from ourselves because we do not want to face things.

It can be scary and take a great deal of courage to be open and honest when it comes to anger. Honestly, I am the type that bottles up my anger until I explode, kind of like if you shake up a coke bottle and then open it. This is never a good situation. Although, as I have gotten older and more mature, I can decide to pick my battles and understand when things are not that important and can be let go of.

To uncover and acknowledge anger from the past and present, it may be helpful to allow your mind to remember what you have tried to forget. Think about and even journal about anger felt during childhood, school life, work, family, friends, and romantic relationships. I know the list might get long and overwhelming, but this can help your mental well-being for your future. Exposing feelings that are deep down will bring emotions to the surface and allow you to work through them.

The second step is the make the decision to forgive. When someone causes us deep emotional pain, it is in our human nature to hold onto that pain and anger as tightly as we can. No matter how much we want to let it go, it might not be the right time because we have not been able to process our emotions completely. Of course, it is not easy to remember that holding onto anger does not harm the other person as much as it does us by causing us more pain and suffering. The hurt and anger we are clenching onto produce many types of stress chemicals that will flood our bodies, causing us to feel physically and emotionally drained, and possibly cause sickness.

The third step is to work on forgiveness. An approach referred to as reframing enables you to look at the original transgression in a new way. There is a chance there were some circumstances you were not able to understand or consider at first. The best course of action is to begin simple and small. In your heart, you may not know how you will forgive the other person. On the logical part of your mind, you can open the door to the possibility that you will be able to forgive in time. 

Some acts are unforgivable such as being physically or sexually abused, or if you were the victim of another type of terrible and or heinous act. I am in no way suggesting anything as bad as these acts are forgettable or forgivable or that the other person deserves a pass because that is far from the truth. However, I am saying you are worth more and that other people will face the consequences of their actions in time, even if it is not in the time frame it should be.

The final step of forgiveness is to be released from the emotional prison we have been in for days, months, or even years. You will be able to understand that you are not alone, and many others have suffered similar situations. There are support groups available for every devastating circumstance in life. It may be helpful to know you are never alone and there are others that can understand and offer advice for how to overcome your pain.

During the final step, it may be useful to see from the experiences in your life, how much you have grown and changed. All the pains and struggles in life have created who we are today and that is something we can be proud of.  As we learn to forgive others for their wrongdoings, we must also learn self-forgiveness. We are not responsible for the pains inflicted on us from others, but we can choose what we will do with the lessons we have learned.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope what I have shared with you today will help you understand more about what forgiveness means and I am sure there are other steps for everyone. What I have shared are just a few steps that I have learned over the years. Please keep in mind, only you know when you are ready to forgive another person, and no one can force you to do so before you are ready. I am looking forward to reading your comments and will respond to your comments as quickly as I possibly can. I hope you never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Motivational Monday

Happy Monday y’all! I hope you had a nice weekend and you are ready to start a new week. It seems like the weekends go by so fast and my weekend was a little stressful. Our poor older cat is sick again and he has many expressions so it is easy to know when he is not feeling well. It was hard for me because I was not able to do anything to help him feel better, but I did what I could offer him is comfort and love. I am confident he has the same type of infection he did a couple of months ago and he needs an antibiotic. I left two voicemails and one email for his doctor’s office, but will be calling them again right when they open. I am not a doctor, but I do think because he has been on a steroid for many years for his asthma, his little immune system is weak and whatever infection the two kittens have that does not bother them at all, causes the poor boy many issues. I plan on addressing this with the doctor because I do not think he needs to be on the steroid any longer and it is only causing issues with his organs and health.

As we begin a new week and leave the weekend behind us, I think we could all use a little motivation to start the week off in the best mindset. It is never easy ending a short weekend and start another long week, but we are all full of determination and tenacity. The weeks might be filled with what seems like endless responsibilities and must-do things, but we all manage these challenges with grace. I hope you find the motivation within the quote I am sharing with y’all today because I think the message it holds is important and we must try to remember this daily. It does not matter what challenges we face or how hard it seems, we will all make it through whatever is put on our shoulders. It is not always easy to see the light at the end of a dark tunnel, but in time we will see the bright light again!

We all know that COVID is still running rampant throughout the world. I think y’all know how much this enrages me because it is putting a stop to the way we want to live our life. It does not need to be this way. The vaccine is free and available to everyone. The vaccine and masks are stopping the spread and hindering the chance for new and more deadly variants to arise. In my opinion, it is the people that are refusing to get vaccinated and or wear masks that are the bigger problem. If everyone would do what is right and follow the advice from the experts, we could be in a better place in life. It is not fair that those of us that have been fully vaccinated still have to live in fear because of underlying health conditions making some more at risk for COVID. This is not political as no politician created the vaccines and this is not risking any person’s freedom, but it is risking the freedom of those that want to live.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared today and I look forward to reading your comments. I hope you have a great start to this week and it only gets better with each day that passes. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
