I was told the other day that I was lucky to be alive. Yep, that’s me.
I had a few health issues last year that made me wake up and smell the coffee.
I lost my dear, sweet Zeke to severe congestive heart failure only to find myself rescued last December by my new crazy dog, Murphy.
I changed how I treat my real estate business by joining a team and I love it. I now work with the most wonderful, professional, honest, caring group. Who would have ever thought I would be at the office by 8:30 am!? Not me, that’s for sure.
I am giving things away again in anticipation of a future move to a larger abode.
All of the issues and changes and decisions in my life made me nostalgic Sunday night.
I have no regrets in my life, only the best of sentimental memories.
I sort of miss what I had with Paul and yet I don’t miss him. He’s gone. I have the best memories of our life together. Life has a way of healing pain and helping us look forward.
I have the best memories of going home when my Mom was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Of my Dad when I was a kid and he took me to Dodger games until my brothers were old enough to go with him. I have the best memories of my siblings, all of us laughing at one time or another at our really dorky antics. And, now, my sister is really, truly my best friend, we share memories on a daily basis.
I am lucky that I caught my health issues and that I have a plan to manage them. Truth be told, I don’t mind my new limitations, I would much rather snow shoe than downhill ski. I prefer the peace and quiet of the snow-covered branches of the trees calling me to discover their existence. I prefer a lake kayak vs. white water stress. I do miss jogging but hiking is my new walking meditation. Yoga, did someone say yoga? PS NOT cancer, please don’t worry.
I have to admit, I am on Twitter more these days. It is my source of what other people think of the overall world we live in. There are some very special people out there whose message is so profound, so insightful and so funny. Makes me smile a lot more just knowing we are all going to be alright.
