    Default Gifts - come in many packages

    Never deny a diagnosis, but do deny the negative verdict that might go with it.
    -Norman Cousins

    Our life is a gift, and our diagnoses can be part of that gift. I never would have the depth of understanding about differing abilities, about pain, about courage if I wasn't given lupus. It is a condition to me - not a "disease" - a condition that is part of my life. Not something that takes away from the ease of my soul.

    May your day be blessed with a smile, with a caress, with a gentle hug from someone who cares for you, with the knowledge that all of us here support each other ~

    Thank you for that uplift and it is so true. You see people, situations, illnesses, etc. with a different set of eyes (or at least I do now) and it make you less like you to judge a person or their situation by what you see on the surface.
