My Hands


Over the past three weeks as I’ve been recovering from my feeding tube surgery I’ve also lost my ability to type and I feel like I’ve lost a best friend. I’m completely healed from my  surgery, but now I’m trying to find myself again. I fell into a deep, dark hole for a while. Like most of us when we are faced with a difficult situation we try to solve the problem, but for three weeks I couldn’t even imagine a solution.

After some major soul searching and encouragement from my family and friends I feel confident again. You know that Carole King song that says “You’ve got to get up every morning with a smile on your face and show the world all love in your heart”? That sort of stuck in my head and it seems to be working for now.

So with a little help I’m back to writing again and I’m loving it.

  5. Shit! do you ever keep me going….I’ve been feeling sorry for myself or trying to cope, with this herniated disk in my back, pinching a nerve. Many times it brings me to think of what your going thru and ALL your uplifting stories you’ve written and my illness seems like a “cake walk”! I’ve told Jim 50 to 70 years old is middle age, but it’s getting harder & harder not to say I’m getting old!!! Yes Family is EVERYTHING…. Love Carol
