Start each day with one small positive thought

After our mom died this past January my sister and I haven’t been the same.   Our mom was such a thoughtful and creative, and artistic, woman.  The ALS may have robbed her of the ability to walk, speak, swallow, move, and eventually breathe but it never robbed her of her beautiful soul nor her giving nature.  She never gave that thoughtfulness up til the day she died.  Be it a smile or mouthing an “I love you” or “Good morning my beautiful.”

For my birthday in May my sister sent me this tiny box with little folded notes.  Inside the box she wrote a note of her own.  It read,” I know Mom sent us both positive text messages or calls nearly every day sometimes.   I’m sure you miss it, I do.  So here are some positive thoughts for you- pick one from the box when you need one.  One is extra special! Love, me”

Today I opened the first, it was a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt:

“ You must do the things you think you cannot do.”

      Thank you SK, it was a sad birthday and since my mom was diagnosed it’s been 3 years of sad ones knowing we would lose her. It is my hope that one day more joy wil come back. My sister’s gift was that first little bit I’ve felt in a long time. ❤️ LL
