Something that I read and really liked…

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.

    Hi Don & Diann: Grateful for Angela’s e-mail sharing an update on how you’re doing. I commented on this page because what you wrote struck a chord…Now I have learned what matters most. So many authors have captured the sentiment but our paths must take us there it seems for us to genuinely understand it…and then our retrospective look has clarity we never imagined. Love reading about the alternative path you’re challenging your body with because I believe Western medicine has much to learn about holistic healing. We’ve been slow to ride that train in this country regardless of the visible evidence. Angela’s wisdom is beyond her years. Our prayers and ever positive thoughts are with all of you and transcend to the cellular level of healing. Tippin’ one tonight in your spirit! Best always and keep us posted…gotta love the blogging! Dave & Cindy

      Hi Dave and Cindy,

      Good to hear from you. I am glad that this site was inspirational to you. That is what I am shooting for to inspire and share my faith with everyone. I couldnt agree more about holistic medicine and feel very strongly that there are many avenues that most people are not aware of when dealing with life threating diseases. Thank you for your prayers that means alot to me and my family. I hope we can get together soon. Take care,

      Don

      Hi Kimberly,

      I am so glad that you are associated with and helping those touched by ALS. Thank you for your kind remarks. Keep up the fight and tell them all to stay strong. A positive attitude is the most important thing you can keep during this process.

      Blessings from the Steffens…
