It is always this time of year that my thoughts turn to my friends and family, of course that is only natural! Still how I wish I could just get on a plane and go visit them or better yet, buy them a plan ticket so that they could fly in and we could spend the holidays together.
I had to go to the Doctor today because my cold has settled in my chest and I just wanted to check and make sure that it hadn’t turned into pneumonia…it hasn’t thank ! Then the Doctor (who has become a dear friend to our family) just smiled and said “Lynn you need to slow down a bit and get more rest”. When I told him what my calendar looked like, he smiled once again and said “ then at least get some rest, you know how much your body can do “. He knows me all too well. ( I think he is also smiling because I am living life again, it wasn’t that long ago I was sitting there telling him I didn’t know if I would ever have enough energy to do anything again! )
Well, I don’t have a Mother to call and ask her to tell me what I need to do or how I will be able to handle the crazy schedule that is coming up. I could always call a dear friend though, I know they will be honest with me and yet not quite so brutally honest …like my family will be . Still I am grateful to have family and friends close to my heart this time of the year. To quote a song…IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! Good night dear friends!
Happiness keeps you Sweet,
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrows keep you Human,
Failures keep you Humble,
Success keeps you Glowing,
But .... Only Friends ....
Keep You Going!!!

“Even though we've changed and we're all finding our own place in the world, we all know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we'll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we're not all still friends.”
