Sunday's Words for the Week

Thanks to those who emailed regarding last week's words.
Marla says that whenever she speaks a negative comment she forces herself to follow it up with a positive.  I love that idea.
Debra sent me this....
Words of truth. Isn't it easy to get caught up in grumbling and complaining? But all it really does is make the miserable more miserable.  

 Along those lines I want to share these two books written my Michael J. Fox.  He has been living with Parkinson's Disease for some time now.  My mother suffered from this for many years before she lost her battle and died with this disease.  I was particularly interested to hear how Fox is able to maintain such a good attitude while facing such a hard situation.  Parkinsons is a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder.   Loss of the brain chemical dopamine causes neurons to fire without normal control, leaving patients less able to direct or control their movement. Parkinson's disease is one of several diseases categorized by clinicians as movement disorders.Once easy daily routines can become difficult tasks for the Parkinson's patient.
In his two books, Fox writes about how his life was impacted by Parkinson's disease, how he coped with it, accepted it and how he wants to help others. He tells an inspirational story.
Check these out if you get the chance.

Wishing you a joy filled week.
