Okay, so my mom requested a new post because she's tired of looking at my ass. Since she is one of my total of 10 readers, I'm going to comply with her request.
So, does this post have to have a point? I suppose not. What's on my mind lately? Unfortunately, what's been on my mind this week is sickness, death, and the uncertainty of what the future holds. Cheery, eh?
The reason for this is news that I've heard in the last several days; a friend's husband just learned that he has leukemia (he's just 33) and a former co-worker was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and has only a few months to live. Both of these things hit me hard. It's a reminder of how fragile life is, how quickly things can change, and how we should appreciate every moment that things are good. Of course, that's not going to happen. I'm still going to get annoyed at day-to-day things like the car dealership taking forever to fix my car, finding baby mice that took up residence in my closet, and whatnot. So, let's scratch the 'every moment' from that thought, and just say 'more often'.
I'm going to work on recognizing the good things in my life and living by one of my favorite phrases 'Count your blessings, not your troubles'. Oh, and praying more b/c that's truly the only way that I feel have the slightest bit of control over anything.
That's it for now. I forgot to post a 'Happy Birthday' to my mom. She's just 26, if your dyslexic. I love you, Mom! Even more than my ass.
