But I will tell you, practicing sensitivity, just sitting and watching and listening and telling the truth to yourself about yourself, that has effects too...
And here's what I'm noticing more and more, every day...
The wonderfulness of... my wife.
She has had "caregiver" thrust upon her, which she has taken on with good cheer and good spirits, but every time I see her, it's... wonderful.
Some days, she's amazing; some days, she's radiant. Some days... she's both.
And this is definitely a gift of MS, to be showered every day by how [your favorite enthusiastic expletives here] wonderful my wife is. A couple of days ago, she was working on I forget exactly what, but man, her mighty mind was in 5th, 6th, maybe even 7th gear. Phenomenal, she was! IS!
So that's your homework for today, fellow MSers and all of us who "trod the boards" on this earthly stage... to see how wonderful the people right in front of you can be, and are.
As Rabbi Hillel said, "Go thou and study."
And, by the way, my wife doesn't look like this. She sounds like this; she is, after all, a voice actor.
She is a mighty gift, indeed...!
