My Story tonight?
Quite a mixed bag of events.
The Breakfast club:
After 18 + years of meeting every month, the 6 of us have changed.
Sue: We miss you. Are you ok? We know that your family sold your home and your car, to move you into a safe place.
We have tried to call you.
We miss you.
We know that we will never see you again.
And we weep for you.
You are a role model, a care taker, a hard working woman, who never complains, as she takes care of her husband of 40+ years, as the chemo and radiation continue.
A double tragedy: Your partner? Failing, short term memory loss, as you suffer through chemo and radiation.
Just a few short years ago, the two of you were enjoying life on your boat, in the poconos.
Through all the health issues, you are a survivor.
Your faith in God and your spirit for living is unsurpassed.
Enjoy every day of that vacation.
She is thriving, healthy and happy.
One of the original 6 pack of friends, is living her dream.
Well, let us just say that I am a loose cannon, a free bird, who is finally enjoying life without deadlines, bonds, and guilt.
After 35 + years of living for others, let’s just say that I care about all of you, but I have finally realized that life is short and so very precious.
Next month, we will meet again.
Denise will be back from her cruise, Susie will update date us on her hubby’s progress, Diane will finish her chemo, Andra, hopefully, will join us, with her adorable grandson, Chicken Butt Jr, and Me?
Let’s just say that I look forward to carrying on the tradition: Friends, co-workers, and confidantes enjoying breakfast once a month…. for all these years.
I love all of these women.
We are stronger, as we continue to support each other through the passages of our lives.
