Why My Wife is My Angel

Why My Wife is My Angel



As most of you know I live each day of my life with multiple sclerosis.  My type of MS is secondary progressive which means that I have symptoms present daily with no remittance.  I take it in stride understanding that there are many people worse off than I, therefore, I focus to stay thankful.  With that said, the daily effort required to deal with this disease is great and the attention and love my wife shows me is even greater.

In my post My Life Living With MS, I talked about the fact that Evelina is my angel, my support and my strength.  I am not sure what I have done in life to have her at my side, but I am greatly appreciative!!

Each day my wife assists me with a few simple tasks with which I struggle, tends to my medications and vitamins, prepares meals and reminds me of all the things that I forget.  The job is truly a never-ending burden and she simply goes about her day with no complaints, which I find amazing.

Now that I am working a new job Evelina makes sure I have clean clothes and new ties.  She keeps me organized and focused to take things with me that I will need throughout the day.  Any success I find in the future at my job at the newspaper will be because of her.  And for that I will be forever grateful.

So to my wife I say I love you, I appreciate your burden of love and you will always be my beautiful.  My words will always fall short of expressing my feelings, but I hope you always know what you mean to me.  Thank you for making my Dreams come true, I love you to the moon!

    When living with chronic/invisible illness, having a loving, caring spouse is a huge gift. I am thankful for my hubby every day. Read this ode by Danny at Dream Big for his angel, Evelina!

  8. I suspect she must be an angel. Your sunny disposition and cheerful wit never betrayed your burden. My prayers shall be more specific for you and for your dear Evelina.

    1. Thank you so much! It is appreciated. I will say that I have been feeling exceptionally well the last few weeks although I don’t dare say that out loud. lol
