My Mom spent the last year of her life fighting ALS with a trach and on a ventilator. Before the operation the doctors told us she wouldn’t be the same after the surgery. They said she wouldn’t be able to talk or eat and she would be highly depressed. I remember while the doctors talked she looked at my sister and I and shook her head to say “Don’t listen to them yall, I will be fine”. She then winked her eye at us. After the surgery I remember the doctor walking into the waiting room scratching his head and saying “I’m not sure, what to tell you but you guys can go in to see her”. As soon as we walked in she said “Hey Tabitha” just as clear and perfect! With a huge smile she said “ I told y’all don’t listen to them doctors, God told me different🙌🏿 and Im hungry, bring me some potatoes and gravy”😂 This picture was a few weeks later at the rehab center! Look closely, we all had been crying and emotional but not Moma, she wasn’t depressed, never cried or lost that smile! She would just always say “It’s alright baby, God has trusted me with this journey” ❤️. Mom taught me so much about life in her last year of life. We must remember that just because someone says something about your life, doesn’t make it so! God has the final say🙌🏿. Thank you Moma🙏🏾❤️ Y’all be encouraged today!! Love you all!! #tabithabrown #patriciablackstockjohnson #alsawareness #Believe

Happy Birthday to Stephen Hawking, (Jan 8, 1942)

"However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up."

In 1963, Hawking was diagnosed with an early-onset slow-progressing form of motor neurone disease (also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's disease) that gradually paralysed him over the decades. ... He died on 14 March 2018 at the age of 76, after living with the disease for more than 50 years.
