Just My Thoughts
Posted 03-02-2012 at 05:13 PM by notgivnup

I just wanted to share a vision in my mind of our journey together with this horrible disease.
I t is as though we are all traveling together in a wilderness desert, void of anything, struggling along together into the unknown, when one falls we all rally around to pick them up and help carry them till their strength returns. Some fall and can no longer go on; we honor them with thanks and prayers. Pick ourselves up, sometimes ever so slowly, and continue on the journey, watching out for fellow travelers, ready to do whatever it takes to help them through. We share suffering, weakness, struggles, and loss of loved ones yet we must go on into the unknown till our time comes when we fall and are unable to go on. So much sadness we endure on this journey yet we survive from strength that comes from somewhere deep within each of us. Thank you all for traveling with me, holding my hand and picking me up when needed. Be strong my friends hand in hand we endure the hardships of this journey together.
My Love to All

Thank you, Di. Whenever I have come across this in an older thread it always makes me feel better for a while. To know that i am surrounded on all sides by people who are going through the same thing and are ready to pick me up or stand and wait until I am ready to stand again.

Anything Di posts is worth the read. She's truly an angel on earth. I so admire her strength. I don't believe she's ever had an unkind word or thought about anyone.
