I have wanted to make a video update but I've had a ROTTEN cold! I am not resisting it, but it sure isn't fun... I am still having Raw smoothies and staying away from junk foods, but soups are definitely on the menu. And a few cookies. I've needed the comfort. I have not had the best 7 days, and I am working on staying positive despite the circumstances. I haven't really known what to say on my blogs, as I've not wanted to come on here and be a Big Bummer. But today I thought I would at least tell you all what is up.
Well, last Friday was the BIG "4-O." and I wanted to THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for all of the wonderful greetings and videos I got to help me celebrate. I feel truly blessed to be part of such an amazing community here. I have to tell you, I may not have gotten through the birthday without you!!!
One big reason is that my Grandmother (the one who has cancer) had a stroke on Friday. Yep, on my birthday. I wasn't quite in the mood to celebrate after that. She is 100% alert, though she is struggling to talk and to eat and has little use of her left side. We spent all of Saturday (Valentine's Day) with her and family. She is doing okay, but not great. We are frustrated and feel helpless. As if the cancer isn't bad enough. She was set to go home from the hospital the day of the stroke, but now may need to go to a nursing home...
I hope you don't think I'm having a pity party, because I'm really not. I have OUTLAWED them from my life. Moments of sheer despair? Oh, I still have those--I'm only human! Sunday I had a baaaaaad day, was very grumpy and weepy. Monday I got myself out and took care of myself! Tuesday I woke up with this cold...
I've been writing, reading, and thinking a lot. I am staying positive, despite everything. I am well. I am connedted to Spirit. I am reading the book "The Live Food Factor" and I am DAMN SURE that I am going to eat as much LIVE food as possible. I want to have HEALTH. I want to be around for many, many decades to come. There is so much I want to accomplish and share with the world.
I haven't got much to give this week, but next week will be back with a a Smile and a bit more to share.
LOVE TO YOU ALL!!!
