Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.


I have chosen to make the most of the years I have spent battling chronic illness which has included many procedures and surgeries. In doing so, it occurred to me that I should share some of the wonderful lessons that I have learned…..lessons taught by a very “tough” school.

I have learned that it is important to allow others to be the doers….to allow others to take care of me.

I have learned to give all power…..all control to God…truly does provide relief.

I have learned that true strength comes from having none.

I have learned that peace comes from being surrounded by family and friends….they are the “security blanket” that surrounds and supports.

I have learned that my husband and son are more important to me than I could have ever imagined….their support…their fortitude….their hugs and tender care…….words cannot express.

I have learned that I am not in control. My body has demonstrated repeatedly that it can take me down!

I have learned to, literally, take each moment….each day as a cherished….blessed gift.

None of us know how long our trek on this earth will be…..it is the time and how we spend it that matters most.
