Her name means "friend".
She is Ruth.
She is my friend who has been diagnosed with MS. What does MS mean? For Ruth it means no feeling from her waist down. It means giving herself injections three times a week. It meant spending last Christmas in the hospital waiting on doctors and tests. It means so much more.
Unless we've been down that road ourselves, I don't think we can fully understand all that it means to be facing a life with MS.
But we can walk beside those who are on that road. We can encourage and be a friend.
Won't you stop by and share an encouraging word with Ruth? Who knows, you may just find a new "friend"!
Please go to Ruth's blog and leave her some encouraging words.
