World Sjogren's Day Poem
« on: July 23, 2014, 04:40:19 PM »
Hi all,

Couldn't resist sharing these thoughts in honor of World Sjogren's Day.

Sjogrens may take you down, but hopefully not out.
Sjogrens may take away your tears, but hopefully not your feelings.
Sjogrens may sap your saliva, but hopefully not your ability to savor life.
Sjogrens may gnarl your joints, but hopefully not your soul.
Sjorgrens will change your life, but hopefully not your resolve to live as fully as possible.

Hugs, courage, and strength to all of my Sjoggie friends.
