It's been awhile
It did get me thinking, though, about how life throws us curves sometimes. How it's the days that start out like any other that suddenly have something thrown in that causes us to stumble, scattering all the pieces of our well-ordered plans to the wind.
It also made me think about how grateful I am to be surrounded by the absolute best family and friends anyone could ever wish for. I despise being dependent on others--even briefly. It just isn't in my nature. But each of you who have helped me through never once made me feel like it was inconvenient to give me pills or help me out of bed or make me food; to visit, to call, to send flowers, to email and text, to let me be grouchy because the pain pills made me do it -- and all the rest. To you who have been so kind, a very humble thank you.
Much as it hurts to stumble, it's really, REALLY nice to know you have pals nearby who will catch you and never let you fall.
