Raising a family with a Spouse suffering from a Chronic Disease

As I sat breastfeeding my infant while entertaining my toddler, half-listening to a doctor (a gastroenterologist to be exact) tell myself and my husband that he was being diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, I was overwhelmed to say the least. This made no sense. How was my 29 year old, strong, healthy, weight lifting, food-loving husband being diagnosed with a disease neither of us had ever heard of? A disease that in the middle of a cold night in January 2012 crippled my husband, sent him to the hospital, and resulted in him being admitted for over a week. A disease that would change the course of our lives forever.

With April upon us, temperatures will rise and warm breezes will blow… spring is in the air. As we look around and see the flowers in bloom and the kids venturing back outdoors to play, we need to acknowledge another symbol likely on the lawns of some of our neighborhood centers or in the gardens of our social-activist neighbors, the blue pinwheel.

Nevertheless, She Persisted: A Playlist

Music has the ability to manipulate moods, manifest feelings long forgotten, and invigorate the soul, thus making music such an important player in today’s world. In spite of what is happening, in spite of being told time and time again – to sit down, be a pretty face, smile more, and say less – we will rise above. We will carry on with dignity, grace, and purpose so that every person is treated with love and kindness. Music will serve as a gateway to tell the stories in which we cannot always say out loud. It will serve as a place to vent our feelings in a productive manner so they do not eat us alive. Whether it’s pounding our feet on the pavement, kickboxing, or simply dancing it out in the living room – we need to get it out.

We’ve been warned, we’ve been given an explanation, and nevertheless we will persist.

This playlist will serve as a booster when our motions need to match our feelings. Mantras for taking on the world. Feel the beat, find the rhythm, and take on the world. Keep on Persisting.

With 13,000 public campgrounds in the US and Canada (and that doesn’t even count private ones or go-pitch-a-tent-in-an-abandoned-field ones), we have good reason to believe that the oftentimes thought of extinct act of camping does still, in fact, exist.
