ALS has been a bane in my life, but it hasn’t stopped me from finding joy in every day. I’ve had two milestones in the last two weeks.
First, my eldest son added a grandson to my grandchildren! I now have Loki and Leon, the loves of my life, along with my children and my daughter-in-law. Oh, how I love them all!
Second, My 48th birthday. I had a party with my immediate family. My children were there, along with my mom. My daughter, who lives in Minnesota with her boyfriend, whom I adore, was present by facetime. I had a wonderful time with my family!
I also had a surprise party with my two out of four best friends, Katrina and Sherry. I was shocked when they came in with a plethora of balloons, gifts, a special cake, and singing “Happy Birthday” smiling their sweetest smiles.
I look around my bedroom, at the gifts and the balloons, and feel the love my family and friends have for me, even on a normal day like this one! There is happiness to find in every day, you just have to open your eyes!
3 John 1:4 – I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. (KJV)
