After it all calmed down and was quiet again, I looked around and realized that I had a real purpose with everyone home and meals to do and was needed again. I also realized that my family all have their own lives in their own homes in cities far away. I sat in the quiet last night as Ron had left to go to THE MOVIES to watch the Steelers play on the big screen, and thought and prayed for those that don't have family and are facing issues that seem insurmountable and sometimes are. I worry about Christmas and getting everything done and having food ready and presents under the tree and also stop and think about my patients that have just received a diagnosis of cancer and what thoughts they have at this time of year when everyone is cheery, and friendly. How do you face the day with all that is about Christmas and also face your own health issues? It is a time of year that should be all year long, that we think of others and reach out to help and listen and yet it is so poignant during this season.
I woke early this morning with the same thoughts on my mind and know that there is something that I need to do and will once that idea comes to the surface in the mean time, remember the holiday and most of all, remember others and Make It A Great Day!
