Today, I am happy to be in the pain caused by pushing my body to the max. Today I am happy to be in the pain of paying my daughter's college tuition. Today I am even happy that I was stuck in the worst traffic ever while trying to leave work.
I now know that these are true blessings... I have always prayed and believed. However, until you grow older, most things only happen to those around you.
But I am now 45. I now know what blessings really are to me. It is all the things I have just mentioned. You see, I recently lost a girlfriend who had a simple surgery and died from the infection; and even more recently than that, I took a simple test. A mammogram, one that I've taken every year for the past five years. This one came back with - INCONCLUSIVE!!!
I had to take another couple of test, and do some waiting. The test came back. I was going to be okay. I cried like a new born child. Because you see, everything was so much more clear to me.
My best girlfriend no longer worries about bills, tuition, or traffic... Guess what I do!!! Boy what a blessing...
Thanks for letting me ramble spark friends!!!
