Let's call this blog: Forever Grateful.
When I was in hospital at Helen Hayes, I was there for a long time. One of my roommates, one time, had a procession of people helping him out. They said they were going to cook for him, clean up for him, give him rides, you know, look after him. They were all from his community and church. I thought it was really cool. Well, now that it's happening to my family, everyone's helping out and its' really cool. It's like everyone's looking after each other. I'm forever grateful to them all. I look forward to getting better so I can return the favor one day.
I was talking to a friend the other day. We were talking about how tough this is for me right now. It's really tough. Let me tell ya. It would be a lot easier if my daughter was around. I'll tell you that. She's probably the reason why I stick around. I really do miss her. But, like I said before, you have to be like a horse running in blinders. You keep your head down and move forward. When I used to run races, you would just think about your goal. Nothing else. That's kind of like what this is right now. But I'll tell you. I am amazed at how grown up my daughter is. You know I've been like this for 6 years, and she's grown up a lot. Amazing.
I think I mentioned it before, but I've started shooting again. It's different. I shoot still lifes and it's great because still lifes don't complain about catering. It's been fun. It's a totally different way of working. It suits my condition right now. I enjoy it. Another change.
I'm gonna cut it short right there cause it's a beautiful sunny, warm day. My friend's here. It's a nice day, so I'm gonna enjoy it.
Have a good week, and check out my other blog where I talk about my past. It's a little out of date. I should update it, but check it out. Love, B. Nice
