Living With an Unknown Intruder

Our lives are full of unknowns, from the day we are born into this world it all becomes a journey.  There are many quotes about the unknown: i.e. “The unknown is always frightening.” “The challenge of the unknown future is so much more exciting than the stories of the accomplished past.” “You must be fearless to travel on the journey of unknown”.

Living not-knowing is hard.  The unknown intruder, Huntington’s disease (HD), moved into our home in 1978 when John and his three (3) sisters discovered their mother had HD.  The unknown intruder would show its ugly head in 1984, 1986 and 1994 as each sister-in-law fell prey to HD.

I chose a life of uncertainty, allowing the unknown intruder in our home, which opened my heart to love more deeply, and knowing John could fall prey to the intruder at any time, made my life richer.

We Can Never Lose Hope…
