turkey day

Today I am filled with joy as various family members call me to let me know that they are making the journey to come and see me on turkey day.  I have longed to see my extended family.  We are a very close knit family and I appreciate every opportunity that I get to spend with them.  
If I don’t get to blog anymore before then, let us try to remember the significance of this approaching day, especially during this time of economic crisis’ and pray for all of our brothers and sisters who are being affected.  Let us hope that our new commander and chief, along with his staff, will bring our country back to a nation where everyone can obtain the "American dream".
Remember to live each day to the fullest.

Pain and frustration

This  cold air really does something to my body.  The pain is unbearable.  I sit in one spot all day trying not to move.  Yesterday was also miserable.  It seemed as though all of my medication was stuck in my esophagus.  I drank so much water to try to ease that sensation that I end up staying up most of the night and today going to the bathroom.  I will continue to trust in God knowing that he will never give me more than I can bear.


I’m sitting here thinking about what I will be doing tomorrow night at this time.  The reason that I am looking for ward to this election is that there is finally a candidate that cares for someone like me.  A person who has to rely on Medicare for insurance and perscriptions because other insurance company’s will not have me due to my "pre-existing condition".  One who is in debt up to her ears because living on a fixed income, having to seek treatment from eight different doctors, endure a multitude of out patient testing and having three surgeries just this year due to my sarc.  I am waiting on pins and needles hoping that God will hear my prayers and the prayers of others like me.  The funny thing is that a politician came to my home on last Friday when I was feeling at my worst.  When I brought up the subject of health care reform, he became very uncomfortable.  I offered him a seat and he refused.  He gave me the same, if not exact words of the McCain/Palin campaign.  It was then that I knew he would not be getting my vote.  Not because he is a Republican, but that he did not provide me with the answers that I needed nor did he accept my warm hospitality.  It really doesn’t matter to me what party a representative is from for me.  I believe, like Obama, that we should erase those party divisions and become one United States of America.  Being seperate and not equal did not work in the past and it shouldn’t work today.  All and all I would just like to remind everyone to vote tomorrow and vote with your heart.  Remember that our children depend on us providing them with a brighter tomorrow.
