To Mom and Dad who were always there, always. Without your guidance, unconditional love and encouragement, I’d have been lost. You made me the woman I am today (like it or not.)
For my husband, the best man I know. My hero, my funny guy, my rock. The man who takes every challenge MS presents with a “you don’t get to win today” attitude. Thank you for waking up every day, seeking out the positive and teaching the rest of us how to savor every priceless moment.
Thanks to all the whacky, wonderful real-life characters in this book who bring joy and chaos to the world. I’ve changed your names but you know who you are! You all mean the world to me and I’m a better person for knowing you.
Everyone has a story. It’s true. Some are sad stories of hardship and tragedy, while others are full of laughter and joy. I’ve been transfixed by tales of travel to the farthest reaches of the globe, or daring adventures of skydiving, bungee jumps and scuba diving (nothing, by the way I would EVER try- these people are nuts. Who jumps out of a perfectly good airplane?)
I’ve read about mammoth acts kindness and courage that renew my faith in mankind, and been bored senseless by a neighbor who has chosen me as the sounding board for their inane anecdotes.
