ALS AWARENESS MONTH
As we find ourselves halfway through ALS awareness month, I have come to the realization that we all have to live with gratitude. Way to often we focus on what is wrong and what could go wrong. We take things and those we love for granted, we don’t take the time to truly ‘smell the roses’.
Working with PALS from all over Arkansas I have seen my share of loss and heartache. I have also seen families come together to love and care for their loved ones. I’ve seen a wife’s love that many could not understand. She spends her days & nights caring for her husband. The wife is weary, tired but would never leave his side. ALS changes you, it changes your family dynamic. ALS comes in like a thief in the night and the life that you knew no longer exist.
Despite the adversity that we may face with ALS, I encourage you all to live with thankfulness, live with gratitude. Live your days with kindness, love & HOPE~ My daddy Richard Blume lived his life in this manner till he took his last breath. There will be days when you are frustrated, when you may feel like giving up. I want you to remember that your strength, courage and will to live comes from within you. It comes from the peace and joy that you carry with you.
I am truly the blessed one, because I am surrounded by ALS Warriors.
May is ALS Awareness month - We are here for you. We are grateful for this opportunity to serve.
Love To All,
Lara Blume McGee
