Out of commission…is this a lesson?

July 24, 2014

Recently, both of my sisters were diagnosed with TMD (Temporomandibular joint dysfunction).  This is the link to the Wikipedia page:

It’s put them both “out of commission” so to speak…even with a specialist’s help, it might take a while for them to fully recover.  “Recover”, not sure what that really means at this point.  Yes, I’m VERY concerned.  Being the only “healthy” sis at the moment, I’ve taken on the care taker role – frankly, I’m grateful that I can help.  Cooking, cleaning, driving…whatever needs to be done…glad to be of service!

Our folks are aging…while we were all together for a brief period of time in the same house, I had to take some sick days off to care for the clan.  To my unpleasant surprise, someone at work did a bit of creative backstabbing…long story short, I am reminded that my family comes first.  I put my heart in my work place – do all that I am responsible for and often volunteer to do much more than expected.  After a pow wow with my hubby last last night, we both agreed that we are happy to be occasionally reminded that we can serve the ones we love…yes, this is a lesson!  We must first take care of ourselves, so we can step up and care for the ones we love when it’s needed.

The world can try to crush us, but our soul is of genuine goodness…only goodness can come…
