This week, I met a wonderful lady, she is a mother, has early stages of MS, takes care of her husband who has a Traumatic Brain Injury, survived cancer and buried her best friend and her husband’s father this year.
What do you say to that?
Honesty for me is the best way and as heartfelt as I told her I didn’t know what to say. Congratulation? At least on surviving cancer. I told her that I thought she was amazing and couldn’t imagine what I would do in her place. She was touched and let me know that she rarely heard her efforts acknowledged.
