Hello again SLM Community! I am so sorry to have seemingly been absent so long. I promise you guys that you weren’t far from my thoughts. Time seems to have gotten way from me; nonetheless, I have returned! In doing so, I am finally sharing an article I had been somewhat hesitant to let go of as it is about someone who was so very, very dear to me.
As most of you are well aware, I am a woman with an amazing support network. I have a large group of family and friends who have helped me throughout my life and my MS journey. I am blessed to come from a large family with many grandparents, aunt and uncles and other relatives. I was fortunate to have a team of people that always had my back and I could go to for anything. I’ve been lucky to share close relationships with my grandparents; something I am well aware of that not everyone gets. It is through that blessing that I have experienced some of the ultimate highs in this life and some heart shattering lows. I am going to split this post into two (please click here for part 2) as this story encompasses more words than just one post can convey. So please bear with the split and know this story comes from some treasured parts of my life!
