I’ll try not to ramble, but please forgive me if I do 🙂
Most of you who have been following my blog for some time know how upside down my life has been over the past year and a half. My daughter had been in and out of the hospital for most of 2016 and a part of the beginning of 2017. She suffers from Sjogren’s Syndrome, among other things, and she’s only 27. It breaks my heart to see someone so young struggling to get through a day that others think nothing of. For those of you who pray, please keep her in your thoughts. Thank you. 🙂
As for me, well, that’s another can of worms. I suffer from Transverse Myelitis and was recently diagnosed with “essential tremor“. To say this freaked me out, is putting it mildly. There is no cure. They will get progressively worse. So, if I miss commenting or liking your post, please don’t hold it against me. My days are filled with trying to take care of everything else, including beginning to pack as we’ll need to sell our home. There usually isn’t time to take care of me, but looks like I won’t have much choice. It’s getting harder to type, so I will eventually need to switch to my Dragon software and go voice to type. I’m so frustrated over all of it.
I love you all, and always appreciate your support, from the bottom of my heart. I haven’t forgotten you. Just be patient with me. I’ll figure it all out. I’m not a quitter by any means. I only know how to fight for what I want and this is a battle I am sure to win!!
They finally found out what was ailing my daughter, and hopefully she’ll be home tomorrow, in her own bed, and on the mend!!
Thank you everyone for your love, support and prayers. I can’t tell you how much it means to me, my husband and most especially, Alyssa ❤
No healthcare issues, no wedding BS, just a simple blog post today about friendship.
After wondering why the people she thought she could count on the most were not there when she needed them, a friend asked me that question. I could only offer my feelings about this subject and I told her;
A true friend is always there for you, ups, downs, and in between. They don’t sit beside you just because they have nothing better to do. They comfort you when you struggle; they applaud you when you succeed; they do not judge or criticize; they do not belittle you for their own personal gain; they laugh with you, not at you; when you cry, they cry. They appreciate that life sometimes hands us all a little bit too much and at these times, we need a shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen, a heart to have compassion.
True colors of a human being always show through in the toughest of times. Keep in mind that true friendship is a two-way street. What you get you have to give back. Do not expect to be catered to, or recognized simply because. I am blessed to have a few friends that I can call “true”, that no matter what they have my back and I never need to wonder if they’ll be there for me, and I for them. Find that person or persons in your own life and hold on tight. You’ll know who they are, and chances are you’ll be very surprised who they’re not….
Keep smiling, keep shining, knowing you can always count on me
