Thank you Kitty for the insights gained during coping with terminal illness. My MS diagnosis compelled me to value the cherishing of the daily tasks that see so mundane and boring. The emotional rollercoaster of illness is not fun when it is I that is suffering. I am pretty sure my family hides some thoughts and worry they feel with all the ebbs and flows my MS offers us. They will open up and about any feeling they have at some point I hope. Valuing everyday is something that could not require an illness for us to feel , but darn if does not force us to take note of the daily events.
