    Adapting to Life Outside Our Home With SMA

    I once heard a joke that a woman’s mind is like an Internet browser that has 1000 tabs open and running at once. I laughed at the time, but came to realize that if I didn’t actually feel like this before hearing the short acronym “SMA,” I most certainly do now.

    I spend much of my time pre-planning and thinking of possible problems that we may run into because of the kids’ diagnoses. I think many other SMA parents do this as well. Prior to our lives with SMA, we didn’t realize just how inaccessible the world is to those who are differently-abled.

        Hey everyone. My latest column is all about learning to find gratitude in unexpected places— thought it’d be perfect timing with Thanksgiving approaching. 

        I’ll be honest… practicing gratitude is a conscious effort for me. It doesn’t come naturally. While I always have something to be grateful for, the daily challenges of SMA often try to steal the spotlight. But, in spite of my circumstances, I work really hard at learning to find gratitude in all things because I truly feel it is a game-changer to my perspective on life.

        In my column, you’ll see what I mean as I share how gratitude has affected me for the better.

        What about you? Do you actively seek out things you’re grateful for? Does life with SMA get in the way of that? I would love to hear your perspective.
