Change... the only constant in the world!

I decided to try and write during the day instead of at night. I am pretty worn out by the end of the day and many times my message probably isn't as positive as it should be. Today I got up early to get ready for my doctors appointment.  I am suppose to get my drain out ...yeah!  She thinks that a lot of my pain will go away when that comes out, so naturally I was excited. I had a funny feeling though to call before I made a trip in there to see if my drainage amount has to be a certain number before they take it out. Sure enough it does, mine is still a bit high so we had to reschedule for Thursday afternoon. Change... sometimes it is so hard to do.

I am trying to stay up just a bit today to do just a few of my normal chores. I know you are probably thinking, just let Jeff and the kids do that, but honestly Jeff and the kids do more than you could ever imagine. They do take great care of me, I just need to feel like I am capable of doing something even if that just means putting something frozen in the crock pot and turning it on. Whew, I am tired just writing about that. :)

The guys have most of the Christmas decorations up and then hopefully tonight they will get the boxes all put away and then it will at least look like Christmas in here and that will be a good thing. I do love my home decorated for every season and I can't wait to see the look on Angie's face when she comes over. She went crazy over the Halloween decorations...she is going to love Christmas!

So today I am going to start at least thinking about what I need to do for the wedding...that is only 4 short weeks away. So many people have offered to help and so I think for sure, I will need to take them up on that. I still am laying low so don't worry, if you really knew what I DIDN'T do all day, you would know not to worry about me. Tomorrow will be my appointment with the Cancer Doctor and the Oncologist there at the Seattle Cancer and Wellness Treatment, I pray that they have some good advice and information for me.

I found this quote by Dick Van Dyke about Christmas and wanted to share it with you.

"Are you willing to forget what you have done for other people, and to remember what other people have done for you ... to remember the weakness and loneliness of people who are growing old ... Are you willing to believe that love is the strongest thing in the world ... stronger than hate, stronger than evil, stronger than death... Then you can keep Christmas! But you can never keep it "

That is so true, this season really is a time to change our thoughts and actions and hopefully for much much longer than the Christmas season. I do believe that Love is the strongest thing on earth and that is helps HEAL people, that is why I am so grateful for so many wonderful people like you  that I call my FRIENDS. I will make it because I am so loved, I can never thank you enough for that. All I can do, is try to show that same LOVE to others.

"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful."

I know, I am so far behind in keeping up with you. I just thought I'd let you know that I really appreciated your quote. There is a relationship in my life that has been giving me a bit of trouble and remembering what she has done for me is a great way to start mending it!
