Starting Again

Okay, I started this blog two years ago because my daughter had one of her and own and it inspired me to start my own ... I thought! One post and I was through. So here I am again, wondering if I have anything to say, will people think I am silly. Silly or not, I am going to give it a go again.

I've got health issues. I have severe airway stenosis. I can hardly breath anymore, and I am scheduled for surgery next month, which I hope will give me significant relief. Right now I sound like Darth Vador from Star Wars when I breath - not a pretty sound. Okay, that was an exaggeration, but not by much. Well, I was just getting into the groove of the "woe is me" "poor pitiful Me" routine of feeling sorry for myself with regard to my health issues, when my husband decides to show me up with his own newly discovered illness! He has been diagnosed with diabetes! I was shocked and surprised and then brought down to earth in regard to my own problems! He has been placed on oral meds and we had to go to a training class today. He is not severe - for which we are grateful - but changes will have to be made to his diet and exercise routines. I hope this will be a good thing for both of us = because I need to make changes too and lose weight, so we will be doing the changing together.

So anyway, as much as I would like for the universe to revolve around me at times, it just doesn't work that way --- and that is most definitely a good thing! God really does know better than that!
