Life Is So Sweet
The last few days have shown me that life is oh so precious. We can not take for granted any day for any reason. It can all be taken from us in the blink of an eye. Every breath, every precious breath that we take can be torn from us very quickly.
No, I am not talking about the Corona Virus. I am talking about something that happened to me personally. My dear husband had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital. Thank goodness they had room for him in the emergency room. He could not breath,he could barely speak. He was there for four agonizing days. He was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and had 2 1/2 liters of fluid drained from the lining around his right lung. In four days, he lost over 20 pounds because of all the excess fluid in his body.
Luckily my sweet sister lives very close to me and she held me together. She kept me grounded. She was my constant companion and for that, I owe her a debt that I can never repay. Thank you is not enough.
I am so happy that he is home now. Recovery will be long and hard, but at least he is here with me. So when I say that life can not be taken for granted, I mean it. I could have lost the man that I have loved for over 25 years in an instant.
So please, think before you speak and never ever go to bed angry with someone. You might not have the chance to tell them that you are sorry.
