It's "Mind over matter"--that's what my Mom used to say to us whenever we were afraid--
Yesterday was the first of several eye appointments at the out patient clinic at the hospital-
I decided in the wee hours of the night, that I could do this---that there really was no-one to hold my hand--- and that it had to be done-
You see, I am an avid reader--and a sorta writer, and I need my eyesight-
So, I went in with confidence----strength that I could do this---and determination to carry these appointments thru, knowing that I am strong--well, hoping I was strong ---
It WAS A GOOD MORNING----
I read their eye charts, right up to the end of the 3rd line, with the nurse telling me afterwards that I did well--
(Doncha just hate having to rhyme off those letters , knowing that the " O " might be a "D", ? ---one feels like such a failure?)
-Another appointment in a week---
On the way out of the Hospital, I heard a Lady by the door, shout to me, "Why you sure have lost a lot of weight!|"
--She couldn't be talking to me--Perhaps she has the wrong person---I was thinking-
Then she said, "Say hello to the Doc"
Lord love a Duck!----She was talking to me!
I wanted to tell her that weight loss wasn't even in my mind---All I was thinking was, "Wow! I got thru the morning--I was strong--because sparking everyday has taught me to be strong!
It has taken me years of Sparking, to get me to this point-
If it's going to be, it's up to me!--"I" am important!---I CAN DO THIS----
