Whether you are celebrating Christmas on Sunday, Kwanzaa on Monday, are in the middle of celebrating Chanukah, or have already celebrated Diwali, Eid al-Fitr, or whatever other holiday you may be celebrating, one thing we all have in common, we all are brought to this blog as a result of Parkinson’s. This holiday season, let’s be grateful for each day of our lives and be grateful for each other.
Parkinson’s does not discriminate. It does not care what is your gender, your race, your color, your national origin, or your religion…no group is exempt. As a result, we have a worldwide community of diverse radiant souls coming together on this blog all working on Parkinson’s recovery. I am grateful for all of you.
In my recovery, I learned that the gift we are given is this life, and I became grateful for each day that I opened my eyes and had a new day to live, even in a temporary Parkinson’s body. I was grateful. I still give gratitude for my life, each and every day.
On that note, as I wish you an early Merry Christmas, an early joyous Kwanzaa for Monday, a Happy Chanukah, and a belated Diwali and Eid al-Fitr for celebrations come and gone, I share with you this:
Let’s be grateful for each day of this life and for each other!
You are worth it!!!
All my best,
