Be who you are!

As I read my SiL's blog today I was directed to Aimee Heffernan blog, where I found this quote.

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."— Dr. Seuss

Sydney gets picked on sometimes because she speaks her mind and when I read this today it made me think, "hell yeah"! We go through life sometimes trying to please people when the person that should be pleased is yourself, your soul, your god. Then when we feel comfortable within our own skin we can go beyond ourselves and make great things happen. It is those people who do speak their mind that I feel go further than those who copy people and try to make other people feel comfortable in their own skin. (With this being said, there is a time and place for all types of personal interaction when people do need to be spoon feed. However, not the topic for today.)

Now, I want to address my SiL's blog entry for today which was on MS (Multiple Sclerosis). I have ignored Aaron's MS until they moved back from Seattle. It was at that time when Aaron lived with me and he sat me down to explain what MS does to his body. It is in the back of my mind how we as a family are lucky that Aaron's medicine has worked so well with his body. I often think about what will happen when his body does fail him and what we as a family will do. What will the family do (Mom, Carmella, David, Robby and Carrie) and how will our lives change. But what really continues to go through my mind is what will we need to do to help Carrie. How will she and the kids survive? What will they do? Will there be a cure that Aaron won't have to experience such huge declines in his mind and body. God has blessed us but I am not naive to think, as Carrie does everyday, each day leads us closer to knowing the answer. Hoping and praying it is the cure.
