Living with M.S.

"Living with M.S. is sort of like training for a long race. The harder you try, and the longer you keep at it, the stronger you become.
Eventually, looking back, you may be amazed at the power you possessed, even when you had no idea it was within your reach." (Linda Ann Nickerson)


A-Z promising quotes: Value

Life can be frustrating with multiple sclerosis. OK, we get that. It can feel futile sometimes, especially when our bodies fail us. How about when our memories lapse, our attention wanders, or our emotions run amok?

Hey, that stuff all happens with MS – or with a host of other conditions people face. Life can be harrowing and hard, and we may find ourselves questioning whether our own lives matter.

But they do.

“A human life is a story told by God.”

That’s a pretty profound statement, especially coming from a beloved storyteller like Danish fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875). He’s the one credited with creating “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” “The Little Mermaid,” “The Snow Queen,” “The Princess and the Pea,”  “The Steadfast Tin Soldier,” “Thumbelina,”  “The Ugly Duckling,” and tons of other fairy tales.

If God is telling my life story, then it must have meaning. It’s real, not fiction or fantasy. It has a purpose. And there are still a few more pages to turn.
