It’s been eight months since I started writing this blog and I hope that it
has sometimes given you comfort, peace, or some kind of insight that soothed
your soul when you needed it. My purpose was to share the wisdom I have learned
over the years from my own recovery, from the many wonderful people in my life
who have accompanied me on my journey, and from the wisdom of the elders whose
words I read and study daily in the books they have written, and from the Bible.
It has also been a time of soul searching and reaching out to my Higher Power,
whom I chose to call God. I have wanted to make some sense of this world for
myself and in the process, hopefully help or comfort someone else out there.
I want to thank all of you for your interest, kind words, support, and
encouragement. I made a commitment to myself to write a new entry each and every
day no matter what. But I have been sidelined by recent events in my life, and
to continue on this journey it is time to let you in, and let you know who I am.
I may need your help and I definitely need your prayers. On December 30 my
husband was admitted to the hospital where he, and I, stayed for a week. After
saving his life by draining all of the fluid around his heart and getting it to
work normally again, they diagnosed him with lung cancer that has metastasized.
He starts chemo on Monday.
I know that God put me in his life to accompany him on this last part of his
journey and I will be there to comfort him and nurture him. We celebrated our
ninth wedding anniversary in the hospital on December 31st and I do not know if
we will have another. But we are going to take it one day at time.
All that matters is this day that God has given us,
