Good morning fellow journeyers. I haven't written a blog in a while. Seems I haven't had any pearls of wisdom to share recently. Actually, I guess in some ways that is a good thing. I haven't really had any major issues with the day to day routine. When things go smoothly with health issues, we sometimes even forget that we have this disease. Those moments are blissful. Then with all the hustle and bustle that this season brings, sometimes our symptoms increase due to fatigue. It is said time and time again, but pace yourself. When accepting invitations or scheduling tasks, make sure to put days in between for rest. I just returned from two whirlwind days in NYC. Somehow I forgot to take my own advice. Three Broadway plays in two days and four hours each way in the car is not smart. It took its toll and had me down for the count for a few days. Like the old saying goes. Everything in moderation. So here is my holiday advice. One day at a time, one cookie at a time, one step at a time and many many hugs and kisses from those you love and cherish. Happy Holidays to Everyone. May the new year bring everyone peace and good will.
