DEPRESSION AND MS AND DISABILITY

Gold mask of Agamemnon 

 

Inscribed on a marble column In Greece  dating from around 200 AD, is a haunting short song of four lines composed by Seikilos. The words of the song may be translated as:

While you're alive, shine:

never let your mood decline.

We've a brief span of life to spend:

Time necessitates an end.

It has been close to three months since I wrote my last blog.  In my last blog I mentioned how I had been doing so great and then went into an MS relapse Emotionally I just fell apart.  I've slowly been getting better and now I am really almost back to a level I was pre relapse.  I felt guilty that I was letting my relapse get me down especially at Holiday time.

Thanksgiving  and Christmas were here and I decided I just wanted to have a happy holiday season . So a blog was out as were a super house and Christmas cards. I couldn't even get energy up to think of putting up a Christmas tree. Oh, but when I said, "maybe" my son and  hubby brought home a winner which we all decorated.

And then my son's put out the lights on our porch which shone thru the Pampas grass my husband had previously placed in our window boxes.

Hubby and I went out to a craft store to buy a ribbon so I could to make a bow for the wreath he had made with pampas grass.

They say that people's natural happiness is 50% intrinsic and the rest is situational. But the strongest element for happiness is close ties with people who love you and who you love, no matter what !

Did we all have a Happy Christmas. How could we not have!!

Hope yours was happy too!
