I whine a lot, I get tired, my knee hurts, sometimes allergies bother me, but I don't really get sick. Then last Friday night occurred. I thought something was coming on, I assumed it was allergies.  Then everything started to hurt, even my my teeth! It turned out to be a sinus infection, a pretty bad one....but just a sinus infection. Inwardly, I panicked. I admit it. Before I found out what it was lots of things went through my head.


1.) If you could barely handle this what would you do if you really got sick?
2.) How much time have you spent thinking you still had plenty of time to do the things you really want to do?
3.) Does everyone know you love them?
4.) You never wrote the book, went to Rome, Paris or Israel, or took your children to Texas.....
5.) Your underwear drawer is embarrassing

Every once in a while life sends you a little note of concern. Are you living your life, or just going though the motions?

If I die with a messy underwear drawer it wouldn't be the worst thing....if I don't get back to Texas, write that book or walk around Rome I will still have lived a great life....but I think I want more.

You too?


  1. Oh. My. I thought I was the only one. If I have an upset stomach, I am certain that it is cancer, or an obstructed bowel. My house is not clean! The paramedics will be here and they will see my dish drainer on the counter! I haven't had enough time to do everything I planned on doing! Sometimes, I look at teenagers and wish I was their age again because I would have the time (and the seemingly endless energy) to do everything I want to do!

  2. I am the other side of the coin. I am sick so often that I don't pay enough attention to it. You can get jaded on all that stuff.
