Inspiration from a young woman with MS

A young woman, Christy, who lives in Murphy, NC attended a class at Writers Circle last year. She told me that she and her husband have Multiple Sclerosis, MS, and they were writing a book about their lives.
I found her to be open about her illness and honest about the problems she and her husband face every day. I did not know she is also a very talented artist.
She sent me the link to see some of her paintings displayed on the MS Association of America website.  Click on the following link and see the outstanding work by Christy.

Feel really sad to know about people like Christy , but its an inspiration which they set for us. Its really very hard to believe to find people with so much confidence in them , they really set a good example.

Her work is inspiring and she tells what inspired her to pain the work on that page. I hope everyone will go and see her painting. Thanks, Kesha, for stopping by to visit.
