And I’m trying, I’m really trying to be jolly. Angela’s post yesterday about taking your health for granted really struck a chord with me. My nephew, age 8, just had surgery on his kidneys. He overcame prostate cancer at age 3. Most of his short life he has dealt with doctors and hospitals and surgeries and tests. And this past week, my adorable daughter, who’s five, was diagnosed with epilepsy.
That is the face of epilepsy.
So I have learned not to take good health for granted. Our tiny, little “home away from home” parish always says a prayer for the sick before Mass begins. It reminds me to be compassionate to others, and we are trying to be jolly even in the midst of uncertainty. Life goes on and we should live it to the fullest.
Here is my card for today:
I was going to enter it in the KOM sketch, but I just realized I didn’t use KOM stamps. Oh well. I think it’s cute anyhow. Those snowmen make me happy!
