Short Term Memory Loss

I have noticed that I have really been struggling with my short term memory. Not to big of a deal if its just not remembering where you put your keys or what you had for breakfast yesterday. But sometimes Andrew will be talking about an event that happened or something cute that Brinlee has said and I don't remember it.....

My little family is so special and there are amazing little things/miracles that happen for us every day. I always want it to be fresh on my mind. I want to take lots of pictures of the sweet times and jot down memories from it so it can always be with me.

My Blog will help me with this. Its fast, easy shows pictures, and I will always have it to look at as long as the Internet exists!

Things are different for us now. Everything has changed. For the better I feel....Depends on the day.

MS happened to us. Showed up in the form of my eye going blind. Its better now, but what a journey it has been.

Multiple Sclerosis is an Auto Immune disease. That basically means my Immune system "hates" me, or hates my nerves anyway. It effects me different days in different ways. But I am learning how not only to live with it, but to FIGHT it! Its easy to fight a disease when you have an army of soldiers (family and friends) behind you.
Official Diagnosis March 17th

"Lucky me"
Brinlee had just turned two. I am glad I have her to keep me on my feet and going. She expects me to be the same mommy that runs with her, twirls her and plays "airplane" with her now just like she did before March. I'm glad she does. It makes me stronger.

My posts are for me, for my family to always be able to look back on with fun memories, remembering the cute things said, to reflect on the fun things we have done, and to be proud of the way we have risen above hardships.

Much Love Always- Marci


  1. You're awesome, marci! I'm so impressed with your attitude and determination! Keep it up!

  2. Wow! Marci! It has been far too long since I've had a hair-cut and we've caught up...

    I, like Rachel, am very impressed with your positive attitude. What a journey this must be...but you know, the Lord is mindful!!! You are a great inspiration!!!
