The Reason for the Season
My blog is going to sit empty for a few days as I have been blessed with a head cold on top of having cataract surgery in my left eye. Putting in three different drops four times a day sucks, but I have to remind myself that having my vision improved is almost the best gift ever! I get to repeat the process next Tuesday, but it's relatively painless for the awesome reward. The operation takes fifteen minutes tops, and in a few weeks, I won't need glasses except for reading. Medicine has come a long way.
The true best gift for me has been the friendships and fans I've found on the Internet. As an author, I spend most of my time staring at this monitor, and beyond the screen, somewhere in cyberland, are wonderful people I hope one day to meet. For your amazing kindness and caring, I wish all of you a very happy holiday and a joyous New Year. Each of you have given me a gift that lasts far longer than ones I will unwrap. Bless you and your families.
Years ago, I wrote a special poem for a friend. Now I can share it with so many who mean so much to me. Prescription? Read and apply as needed.
Along life's way we chanced to meet when through my path you crossed.
If we hadn't met those years before, just think of all we'd lost.
We've shared so much, you and me;
Our hopes, our dream, our fears.
We even managed to find the smiles that hid beneath the tears.
We've grown together, that's for sure;
and even aged some too.
I guess this kind of friendship is what one would call true .
So please remember one last thing, wherever you may be.
Nothing can change what we have shared.
We're a FRIENDSHIP, you and me!
