Sacrifice

November 29, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Anna sat comfortably where Joe parked her, enjoying the mingling crowd of family and friends at her thirtieth birthday party. She looked up and smiled warmly as her cousin came to crouch in front of Anna’s wheelchair for a chat. It had been a rough few weeks as Anna’s Multiple Sclerosis roared loudly as if to remind her it was bigger than she and would ruin her birthday party if it felt like it, but with her husband’s love and never ending devotion as caregiver, the party was a hit.
          “You look lovely, and I just want you to know what an inspiration your strength is to us all,” her cousin said, squeezing Anna’s hand.               
          “Well thank you, but the credit goes to him,” Anna replied, nodding at Joe who was busy filling a plate full of Anna’s favorite treats.
