I wrote this last year when my sister was suffering with cancer that finally took her life on 8/22/08. Even though I miss her everyday and will for all my living days, I still believe in what I wrote then.
One might say that I have to much going on in my life. I don't think it is anymore than the next person. Believe me when I say I wish these things weren't happening. They are and one has to take it one day at a time. Nobody said life was easy, it isn't. You just make the best of it and do the best you can.
I have a sister who is courageously fighting cancer, a stepson who is more than likely going back Iraq, having my current supervisor leave, my Nana whose health is going down hill, and a husband who will be working away from home most of the summer. I think it is just the way life is. If you really think about it, you will realize that there is some life changing events going on in our daily lives.
I have had people ask me how I get through it. I say this: You can't change people's health, you can't make people do things to make your life easier, and sometimes people do what they have to do. I can't live other people's lives. I have to live my own, make my own choices, and live with those choices. Everything happens for a reason. If I didn't believe that I know that at times I wouldn't be able to make it
