Gratitude

“We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.”

- John F. Kennedy

 “At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”

- Albert Schweitzer

In life, there are many instances where good deeds often go unnoticed and the people who do these deeds can be overlooked. As we live in a somewhat “rushed” and hectic society, there are many moments that tend to slip under the radar as we hurry along to accomplish the day’s tasks. We can often ignore the things in life that are precious and valuable. It is not through personal fault that this occurs; there are simply not enough hours in the day to single out all of the privileged moments we experience.

But what if we did just that? What if we made time to think of all the moments, people, and interactions that we feel grateful for on any given day? Showing gratitude to the people in our lives that we cherish and to the moments that make life unforgettable has the capability to brighten our outlook, and make an otherwise “hectic” day seem gracious and special.

What are some things that make you feel grateful?

      It is very encouraging and promising when new developments are made for the treatment of MS. The treatment decision process is an important one, and consulting with a physician regarding treatment therapies is encouraged. “The American Academy of Neurology recommends that treatment with one of the disease-modifying medications be considered as early after the diagnosis as possible. Talk with your neurologist about which of these treatments is best for you” http://patients.aan.com/globals/axon/assets/9582.pdf.

      MSAA offers a treatment resource toolkit called S.E.A.R.C.H. to assist patients and physicians to determine an MS disease modifying therapy that is appropriate. For more information on this tool and to discuss MS treatment therapies, please contact the MSAA Helpline at (800) 532-7667, ext. 154 to speak with a client services consultant. You can also visit our website for more information on the S.E.A.R.C.H. tool at http://www.mymsaa.org/programs/search/.
