I read a website the other day that had some profound things in it that I felt summed up a lot of how I feel and think and wanted to share it with everyone.
In all of our lives there comes a time – almost always unexpectedly – when something happens that so changes our lives that we swear: “I will never forget this. My life will never be the same. Now, I have learned what matters most.”
The ways in which we come to know what matters most or express our change after our event changing moment are as varied as we are and as varied as the things that happen to us. But what finds parallel and resonance in all of us is the awareness that there is something we have been missing or forgetting, and what matters most is something that deserves our attention and our acting on it.
And in the realm of things that grab our attention, change our lives forever, and make us a member of a club we did not want to join and from which we cannot resign…little has the impact of ALS – whether you have ALS or are anywhere, in anyway, part of the ALS life changing family.
