Lupus Thoughts From the Heart:
Some people only want to support stars in their journey with lupus when their neighbor just needs a listening ear. Some people rather put an “L” in the air with a superstar than get in the trenches to support the star in their home. We can walk all day, raise funds all night but if we aren’t encouraging and helping one another through the hard times it means nothing. We can wear shirts, sport purple, scream we need a cure and adorn the metamorphosis of a butterfly, but when we are in the hospital holding dear to the IV that sustains us for the moment and saying the prayers that keep us for a lifetime those who are right by our side is what truly matters.
It’s a beautiful thing to spread awareness, but if support is lacking the awareness is naught. In place of throwing up an L, spreading a lupus banner on FB, sending a tweet on twitter, make a concerted effort to encourage, support and reach out to those closest to you that are fighting so hard every second of every day. #LupusInColor
