(This post is dedicated to my friend, Deb, who is diagnosed with ALS.)
They can take so much from a person. Energy. Mobility. Limbs. Memories. Cruel and greedy, they strip so many things away without recourse.
Yet there is one thing they can never take.
The human spirit. That joie de vivre that makes up who we are. That indomitable well spring of a life worth living.
Unless we let it.
Don't. Don't let it make you give up living your life to the fullest that you can before it's your time. Don't let it crush your spirit and make you a shell. Don't let it snatch away those precious months, days. Minutes.
Thank you Valerie Harper for illustrating this so beautifully and showing us all what a life worth living looks like.
