I'd like to start off by thanking all of you for your concern and for your kind words yesterday. I feel blessed to have found my new blog buddies. It helps to know there are people out there who care. Life was never meant to be easy, but they say we are never dealt more than we can handle. Hubbie and I have been through far worse, and we have survived. In 1994 when we had been married for about 3 years, hubbie contracted a lung infection and nearly died. He was so sick that most of his family had given up and were preparing him to go into the light. On the other side was myself, his mother, and one of his sisters...and we never gave up hope. I was angry with what his family was doing and let them know that it had to stop. Their response was "We feel you are in denial, and you may need some counseling to help you through this." And to that my response was, "There is a big difference between denial and having hope."
Well, hope and faith won out and 15 years later, hubbie is still here. Sadly, the rift in the family has never mended and probably never will, but we have each other...and that is what counts. Also, I have not heard from my friend since she told me of her illness, and all I can do right now, is to give her her space. So, with that in mind, I want to say I woke up this morning feeling a lot better than I did last night. I know that whatever is thrown at us, we can overcome if we just stay strong together. And the fact of the matter is, there are those out there who are in far worse circumstances than we are and I would wish for them a better life during the coming year.
If you could grant just one wish...what would it be?
