So I have decided to start a blog! Maybe it’s the idea that I can make friends with people I don’t know in real life. Or maybe it’s that I can stay connected with the people in my life that I don’t get to see as much as I would like. Life with kids never lets us connect with the ones we want, does it? you would rather nap than pick up the phone to chat 🙂
This “entry” was going to be about trying to name my blog (I will write that one later) but I just got home from visiting a family member in the hospital. And now I think I am going to write about that. Cause they say to write how you feel right? This family member is currently critically ill with a life-threatening illness. When I first saw them I almost passed out 🙁 I have never seen anyone in that kind of condition. It was very difficult. ). They were on deaths doorstep and have come such a long way. For that we are grateful, it was a true miracle. Still a LONG road to recovery but I’m sure they will pull through and be home before we know it 🙂
It gets you thinking, when someone that close to you is in such condition, how much time do we have. I always say we never know if we will still have tomorrow, but do I actually believe it? If today was my last day would it be a good one. Will I have done what I wanted to? The scary answer is no 🙁
This is why I have decided to start this blog. I always say later I will get that organized, next week I will go visit (so-and-so) Next month we can take care of that project. But later, next week, and next month come and go, did I do what I had set off for another time, usually the answer is no. So now I am going to track what I do, and get it done. Hopefully there are others (maybe you?) who are thinking the same thing and afraid to start. Well if I can do it ANYONE can. Lets start this together and before you know it we will be the people we really want to be!
Promise every entry will not be so heavy 🙂
