Yesterday a needle was stuck in my arm. A vial was filled with my blood, and it will be examined to see if the abnormal white blood cells are still present. And then I will get a phone call with the results in a few days.
The wait is horrible. Not knowing is worse.
So I am concentrating on being here now for my family and my sanity. Taking pleasure in the little things. Giving and receiving love at every opportunity. Hugging a lot.
I am fully expecting to receive a call saying that all is OK. This was just another wake up call in my life about how short our time together really is, and that I need to make the most of every moment.
So Carpe Diem.
Go hug everyone, for no reason. Smile at strangers. Take a moment to look around you and find beauty in your surroundings. Use all your senses. Do a random act of kindness. And most of all, tell those you love that you love them.
Life with Kerri sends you love.
