I would like to take this moment to wish all of you amazingly wonderful people, who use part of your precious time to visit me here at SimplyChronicallyIll, a very Merry Christmas and a safe and healing New Year!

Thank you for being such supportive, kind and encouraging people that allow me to see the best that humans have to offer.  It is such an honor to be part of the WP bloggers.

I will return in February when I look forward to seeing all of you again.  Please remember to be kind to yourself and each other, this world can be a brutal place and you may be the only kindness someone experiences.

“Whether we’re a preschooler or a young teen, a graduating college senior or a retired person, we human beings all want to know that we’re acceptable, that our being alive somehow makes a difference in the lives of others.”
― Fred RogersThe World According to Mister Rogers: Important Things to Remember


Isn’t this so true……….no matter who we are, where we live, what our age………..we all want to feel as if we matter and that inhabiting this planet makes a positive impact on others’ lives.  I think this is even more important for those of us who live with challenges………we feel broken, damaged, less than, unable to live “up” to the world’s artificial standard of useful…………

Mr. Rogers had it ABSOLUTELY right, he knew everyone mattered, no matter who they were……………so today, make sure you let those in your life who are important to you know that they matter and you are glad to be sharing your life’s journey with them!  You have no idea how telling someone they are important to you could change a person’s day………month………… or future.

Now go………

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
