Everything is Okay ...
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee
I have been under the weather, and now ... I feel much better. I don't complain whenever I get sick ... why?
Because I'm lucky to be here ... lucky to be living in the first place. I do sometimes, cry when I am feeling extra pain. I'm just not perfect at all. But, I don't complain ... whine 'woe is me, why me?'
I am a 16 year survivor of non-Hodgkins lymphoma ... I shouldn't be here today. Can you imagine how I felt when the oncologist told me those very words several months ago? I know I am fortunate to have another chance at life. I treasure it.
I almost died with congestive heart failure since battling cancer. I almost died when my son died. Those are just three battles I have come through out of many. Like the strong redwood tree ... I am still standing.
Once in a while I stop writing for a week or so, if I'm not well. I have a 'million' health problems now ... but, that's okay ... I'm here :) I begin writing as soon as I'm better. Just know I will be back as soon as possible ... I miss keeping in contact. I miss you.
Everything is okay ...
