I go through life wondering to myself what is deemed to be ‘important’?..
- good health?
- friends and family?
Can money buy happiness?
Can money buy good health?
Can money buy friends??
..that would be a resounding ‘No’…
Sure I have my idiosyncrasies..
as to what I deem to be important in my day to day life..
- the bed needs to be made
- the cushions on the couch need to be perfect
- the laundry
- the cheque book balanced
- the dishes done
now before you judge..I never claimed to be what is deemed ‘normal?..
- I stay up too late
- spend too much time on the computer
- I like to be organized
- the towels need to be folded a certain way
- I don’t like making left hand turns
- I don’t like to be late
- the kitchen sink needs to be shiny
- the pillow cases are ironed
am I obsessive compulsive?..oh sure maybe a bit..
but in the whole grand scheme of things do any of these little idiosyncrasies really matter?..
..now where is all this going you may be wondering?..well tonight..one phone call..and a word that we all never want to hear….the dreaded ‘C’..
..a lady I work with diagnosed with a ‘mass on her lung’..yes it is ‘C’..she told me it was the ‘good kind to have’..no Chemo or radiation will be necessary..
For that I am most grateful…surgery is on her agenda…that and living a long and happy life..
She has a positive attitude and that will go far in her recovery process..
So get out there and live your life..I plan to….because things can change in the ‘blink of an eye’…
