Life is good.

Again a good night’s sleep which is brilliant as it means it a good day for me and for Richie.

It’s really great to have so many people to communicate with via blogs.

This communication so very important to me, it’s good to get so much supportive feedback really wonderful.

I like getting comments from people and enjoy being able to visit other blogs and read other peoples stories and leave my comment.

In the relative short time I have been communicating with other bloggers I have noticed how important these relationships have become.

Being able to give and receive support is crucial for dealing with life especially life with a handicap or disease.

We humans do need each other we are social group animals and it is the group dynamics that maintains our ability to survive and adapt to our surroundings and to whatever life throws our way.

It is very nice to be told that my blog is an inspiration to others because I have found other peoples blog to be inspirational for me. The blog world is full of lovely people.

At times I get very down hearted and scared of what lies round the corner but have learned that I can not know that now and it is pointless time wasting to spend any time on ' what if ' and ' when ' and ' what do we do when ' would rather spend the time enjoying the here and now.

The here and now today is very pleasant the sun is shining the kids from the neighbourhood are playing outside and the days are getting longer as we move slowly towards springtime.

And I am watching the movie Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

Life is good.

I'm glad you are having a good day today :)

I actually find it hard to remember what life was like before blogging! It takes a large part of my day reading the various blogs that I follow and writing my own.

Of all the various forms of communication/expression that have inhabited the internet this has to be my favourite.

Hi Nat,

Hope you are having a good day too?

Blogging is my favourite too.

But you are right it takes ages to read all the blogs I follow too,

But its good to do very good for the mind.

Have a good evening.

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick

I've come to enjoy the blog world tremendously. Although just as in "real" life, there are people who are easy to know and enjoy while there are others who spread negativity and condescension.

You, my dear, spread nothing but inspiration and humanity to all. Thank you. I always take a good feeling after visiting here, even if it is accompanied by a tear.

Hi Herrad,
Well said!!
The friendships I have made through the wonderful world of blogging, is a real pleasure and a great help - including ours!!

I really enjoy writing my own blog, I actually find it therapeutic for me & I hope for those reading it.
I have told you before how inspirational I find you, Richie and your blogs and I know I am not alone.

I am glad you have had a good day and I hope you have a good night to go with it.
I look forward to our continued chats and to getting to know many more bloggers out there!

Life is good and it is wonderful getting to know people through the blogosphere.

I personally prefer visiting my fellow MS'ers blog site than going to a support group. Your blog is one of my favorite places to visit.
