Sunday Thought

It’s September and that means one thing – CMT Awareness Month. During the month of September I will be using my blog to play a part in raising Awareness with an “alphabet challenge” – blogging a letter / key word almost every day.  Today is brought to you by the letter K. I hope my month of blogging will help you to learn more about CMT – the most common but least well known hereditary nerve disorder – and me. And I hope this will also help to raise funds for the Charcot Marie Tooth Association to support its efforts to find a treatment for CMT. You can join me in learning more about CMT by clicking onto and of course a donation would be wonderful too!

When I was in high school and full of angst, one of the books I found on my father’s shelf was The Prophet by Khalil Gibran. When I graduated from university my mom and dad gave me my own copy, so that I could flip through and find thoughts as and when I needed them.

Today’s Sunday thought is one of my favourite lines of Gibran. There is no shame in limping. There is no shame in being slow. Because we try, we move forward, in our thinking and our trajectory.

And that is my thought for Sunday. I may limp and I may be slow. But I am evolving and moving forward. I encourage everyone to do the same – find something that keeps you moving forward—spiritually, intellectually, emotionally or physically. And enjoy where that forward movement takes you.

It’s CMT Awareness Month. Today’s post was brought to you by the letter “K” – Khalil Gibran. You can learn more about CMT and donate to support the search for a treatment for this (at present) incurable progressive degenerative nerve disease at — Thank you!
