ED’S STORY: Grateful

Ed Dobson was diagnosed with ALS and given a short time to live, Ed wrestles with issues suffering raises: worry, identity, forgiveness, gratitude, and healing. Emerging from it all is his discovery that there is always hope.

Ed Dobson has said that he wouldn’t wish ALS on his worst enemy, yet even in the midst of his own diagnosis, he has chosen gratitude. When we are faced with suffering, or when our loved ones suffer, it can feel impossible to be grateful. Sometimes our situations seem too difficult or too painful for us to be grateful for anything.

Ed and his wife, Lorna, have learned gratitude, even in the midst of the challenge of becoming a caregiver, and a care-receiver. Ed and Lorna teach us that it is possible to wake up every day and honestly say, “Lord, thank you for waking me up this morning.”
