Dear Dan, I'm Sorry
When the bridge is broken before your eyes, you automatically think to turn back. What's ahead looks unknown, unpredictable, messy. This is our wedding bridge. The one we united as husband and wife. Sometimes this bridge is submerged by water. There is nowhere to go but to land in the cold water. Going back is usually the first choice but remaining in pain, sometimes its just worth the leap forward to get dirty and feel the coolness of life. MS can be scary. Dreams and certainty change right before your eyes. Living in fear only takes away from the real beauty of life or the moments we have with each other. Like you said we have been on a hell of a ride but thank God we have each other. There will be moments of good, and times of war between us, but we will always be together! The day I promised, "...to have and to hold [you], from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part...." I never imagined MS and Us. As I would like to rewrite this Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis from our life I can't. I am sorry I haven't been the perfect wife holding your hand or listening with my mouth closed. I would love to say this is my last F- MS statement, but that would be a lie. It doesn't matter who brings the bread home as long as we have each other. I love YOU forever and ever! Like this bridge, miracles happen sometimes we have to be patient and practice compassion!
