Today is World MS Day! In the US we celebrate MS Awareness Week in March but in addition, World MS Day started in 2009 to bring the global community together to raise awareness worldwide!
More than 2.3 million people worldwide live with MS. The number of
people in the US living with MS is unknown since the CDC does not
require reporting (source).
The hashtag for this year is #strongerthanMS which I just LOVE!
Now let's get to What I'm Loving Wednesday. . .
I'm loving these tiny dancers! My nieces danced in their recital this weekend and they did great! They are both on a competiton team and are doing so well. It is so fun to see how much they have improved. Peyton has been dancing for 5 years so she got a trophy! I gave them some crafts (instead of flowers).
I'm loving the Red Nose Day was last week and that so many people got involved. The poverty in this country that some children live in is unacceptable considering how much money/resources the United States has. . . I hope this day helped to raise a lot of awareness and money!
I'm loving that after a lot of "tire drama" I finally have 4 brand new tires. I've had several cars in my lifetime and had never had a flat before this car. This was my 2nd and my car isn't even 2 years old yet. Ugh! Hopefully these new tires will bring much better luck.
I'm loving that Z-packs work so fast! I had a sinus infection last week and I'm finally feeling better. I really thought that it was allergies and MS fatigue from Ride The Vineyard and those two things were probably both factors in me getting sick but good to know it was actually something that could be treated with meds (and essential oils - thankful for those b/c they helped a lot while I was waiting for my antibiotic)!
I'm loving all 3 of these funnies! I'm not usually one to share these types of things but I just couldn't resist! They all gave me a good laugh!
