This Is Your Life

Not a bad manifesto to live by...


  1. Absolutely Agree! I have a progressive disease for which there is no treatment or cure. I know that my life will be a shorter version than what I would have expected, but this has taught me to live with all the passion I can muster. None of us know what the future will bring, so grab onto life with both hands!! Let the mistakes and hard times be your teacher, then move on into peace and joy.

    1. Miss Marla, Sorry to hear of your situation. We are in the same boat in more ways than one, it would appear.

      Linda has multiple sclerosis, and in many ways it has been a boon. Her 1995 diagnosis jolted us into a clarity and focus that made us more determined than ever to be free to honour our priorities.

      Peace and joy are priorities worthy of our time and attention. If we all made these our primary goals, everything else would take care of itself.

      Thanks for sharing your words of wisdom with us.

      Peace and joy to you, NBA readers, and the world!

  2. So sorry that your wife, Linda, has to live life with the challenge of MS. I have something called Mitochondrial Myopathy. It's difficulties are much like those with MS. Just never gave it much thought previously what all we need muscles to do for us! Chronic disease can be daunting, but a great teacher at the same time!
