I am a recipient of Parkinson's disease. Why it chooses some and not others is a question that, as of yet, no one can answer. Because of that fact, I am also a recipient of blessings and experiences I would not have had otherwise. Therefore, I've never really had the desire to complain. Are there days when I'd wish otherwise? Of course. There are days 'normail' people get up and don't want to go to work. But then, I'm not normal. Some people think I'm crazy. Some people think I'm quiet. Some people think 'something's wrong' with me and I'm upset. They don't know that PD can steal your smile and underneath the 'frown' there is a person filled with joy, even on the tough days. Life is hard. That's why I write. That's why I love to take pictures. That's why I look for the blessings in each day. When I do that, life isn't so hard because God is so good.
