I just finished teaching my Abnormal Psychology class this morning. Walking back to my car on this beautiful autumn morning, I became exuberant with gratitude for my many blessings.
Despite having been diagnosed with MS so very many years ago, I’m still able to walk, unassisted, from a remote parking location, and climb three flights of stairs.
Despite having undergone close to twenty dilatation surgeries for idiopathic subglottic stenosis, I experienced no shortness of breath today.
Despite having been temporarily blind multiple times, secondary to optic neuritis, my vision remains intact.
Always count your blessings. You only realize just how very precious they truly are only when you have lost them.
