HOPE

It's hard to live in a daily state of unwell. Sometimes the best comfort comes not from pills but from people.  Make every effort to surround yourself with the right type of people!  You know the kind I mean....the ones that aren't afraid to hear about your aches/pains, the ones that can laugh with you one moment and cry with you the next!

LIFE blooms through chronic illness;  HOPE is ever present as each day provides new opportunity for healing emotionally and physically;  HOPE is redefining oneself;  HOPE is knowing there is a brighter tomorrow;  HOPE is acceptance;  HOPE is love;  HOPE is........
