Since I've always been quick with an opinion an old friend once lost and again found suggested that perhaps I should share with more people my commentary. Never being one to pass on a challenge I thought I'd give it a whirl.
With the new year starting and the snow falling and falling I’m looking forward to a good year. Perhaps this could be the best in a couple of years. I had my “total” hysterectomy on October 21st. It’s funny how we learn to live with things. Human beings are truly very resilient when you think about it. I knew I had gotten to where I tired extremely easy. Fatigue had just become a part of my everyday life. Like an old friend it would great me as I got out of bed each morning. Strange pains were just another event that I had accepted as normal. I thought what my body was going through inside couldn’t possibly affect me as much as it did, so I just thought it was age and normal progression. What I have found though is that I feel energetic now. I feel healthy. It’s hard to explain but I suppose the best way I can explain it is to compare it to when you’ve been sick and haven’t showered in like 3 days because you just couldn’t get out of bed and you start to feel better and when that shower water hits your skin there is just this sense of awe. I am eager to get back to life. I have energy to do things now so I won’t be as likely to pass on opportunities to go out and do things. I look forward to exercising and losing weight again. My care at Dupont Hospital was absolutely wonderful. Those ladies go above and beyond in their care of their patients. Anything I needed and caring and comforting smiles were a plenty. My family and my friends were supportive and I love each and every one of you. I look forward to spending a lot more time with friends and family this year and to making and getting to know new friends. Life is good. God is great in his wisdom and his strength he provides through many avenues. Often times people don’t believe or doubt God. I’ve heard people say how can He let this or that happen. He’s given us free will. He has given us a choice. He doesn’t let things happen, but things happen to help us through this life and the next. It’s true I wanted children. I wanted to be a mom, but for whatever reason that isn’t to be so I will embrace the children in my life. I will embrace my family and my friends and my pets. Life can be beautiful even in hard times. Even in death. I remember the strength of my uncle Roger and it was hard watching him go through what he did, but I wouldn’t trade one minute of my time with him, even in his hard times. May God bless you all in the new year and may your life be full of love and happiness.
