Happy Sunday TKW Family! Man I’ll tell you what I’m so glad last week is over. Talk about one hell of an emotional week. Someone very, very dear to my heart is fighting for their life right now and I feel utterly helpless. We all have problems, we all complain yet when something like that hits you out of no where it’s like life just sucker punched you in the gut for being selfish. My heart is hurting and my hands are tied because I can’t fix it or make it better. I can’t bake them something to make them better. I just am…lost.
All I can do is pray, hope and be strong.
Life is so precious and something we often take for granted. We are so used to having that other person answer the phone when we call or like our facebook status. We’re just so used to them being ‘there’ and being their normal happy self that when illness hits them so hard you then realize just how precious life is. Yet during that same week there was joy on the other side of the spectrum. Mama and Papa Fantabulous celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. I mean just how amazing is that?! 60 years of marriage is unheard of these days and I can only pray that Mr. Fantabulous and I have that.
So for me this week has been hard – I’m so sad about one thing yet so happy about another. It’s like when I’m crying I feel like I should be happy for my in-laws yet when I’m happy and smiling I feel guilty because I feel like I should be sad for the other person. All I can do right now I suppose is live my life the best way I can. Let everyone know how I feel, that I love them and continue to have faith. That’s all I can do, right?
I’m sorry this isn’t your normal silly and happy post that you’re used to from me but it’s like with you guys I can open up, talk…share. Sigh…
What else can I share? So I had my MRA done on my right shoulder. Of the morning I go into have it done I have zero pain. Isn’t that always the case? As soon as you see the dr. you feel better. However that feeling ok quickly fell to the wayside as she harpooned me. Actually the MRA doesn’t hurt; it’s that lidocaine injection they give you before they inject you with the contrast dye. I should know the results early this week. I hope not another surgery as shoulder surgery is wicked nasty and I just don’t have time for it. LOL
Anyway I’m signing off now as I want to head out and stop by the hospital for a bit to show some love and let them know I am praying for them. Have an amazing week!
