Sitting in front of the computer, I don’t know where to start. Blogging has been the most dedicated practice I have ever had in my life and the last 6 months Life pushed me off my game so I could pay attention to it. This Summer I got sick and discovered I had uterine cancer. It took awhile for me to get the surgery that was recommended. But Life has its way of moving you into what is important. Its trick: The more I needed to slow down, the less my computer worked. I was pulled far from my blogging life.
Surgery behind me now….Today I woke up at 4:40 a.m. missing this space so much. I grabbed my laptop and headed out for Sandi’s Diner. Sandi is a dear friend who makes a mean breakfast at the break of dawn. AND, also has internet. SCORE!
The big question….would my computer work there? Was something wrong with my internet or with my laptop. If you are reading this, you will know the answer. What was impossible at home is working like magic here. Maybe life is just letting me loose. Saying, go…spread your wings…you are free.
And that is how I feel these days. Free.
I spent last month traveling back and forth to Houston’s MD Anderson, a world class cancer hospital that happens to be in my area of the world. My hubby, Eric, went with me and several times we comment how we felt wrong for having such a good time at the hospital. But they must have someone trained with running big places like Disney working there because it ran like a theme park. I like to joke that they have a game you play there….take off your clothes, put them back on…take off your clothes, put them back on…and I was winning. Yep, lots of tests. Then the surgery. And just last week, a check-up.
They feel like my prognosis is really good. It doesn’t seem to have spread. YAY! So they will keep an eye on my health every 3-4 months.
I chose the word THRIVE as my word of the year for 2014. That’s what I am doing!
I have some catch up to do for Creativity Tribe. My email has been down. I hope to have that working in the next week. If you tried to contact me and didn’t hear back from me…it was a little email snatching gremlin.
Big beautiful hugs to each of you.
