It is Enough

in Family, General, Photography

I feel like I have neglected the blog lately, and neglected all of you. I am sorry. I am reading and watching and thankful for your comments, your blog posts, your emails and your friendship. My life is riddle with NEW health issues. I have been consumed with worries and what ifs?. I want answers and I want them yesterday. It doesn’t work like that though does it? One question leads to another, long awaited appointment leads to another. Tests are scheduled, results take month of forevers. One doctor indicates one scenario, another doctor disagrees.

I felt like I was carrying my fair share with MS. It was enough.

It all moves at a snails pace. I frantically search the internet, diagnosing myself with deadly diseases. I want to stomp my feet and demand answers NOW. I want a fix today. I want to quit thinking, speculating and worrying.

I can’t … but, I can and I will.

Relief … it came to me just like that. It is that easy.

I can be thankful for what I have today. No one can know tomorrow. I will not waste today. I will enjoy today, everyday.

Sweet and Sassy
What I have today is perfect! It’s enough.

Have a wonderful Mother’s Day OK? I know I will.

    AMEN x infinity. You go girl. The Universe has got your back – whether you realize it or not. And so do your friends, family & “fans” like me. Enjoy your day. Enjoy each day. Each moment.

    Perfectly and beautifully said. Thank you for reminding us what we all should know already.

    Happy Mother’s Day MK.

    Kim, you are one of the bravest and strongest women I know, and I feel privileged to call you a friend. I often think of you and your struggle with MS … I will keep you in my prayers.
    Happy Mother’s Day, I hope it is a wonderful day because you deserve it!

    The older I get, the more I realize that I need to take seconds at a time! I can completely emphasize with you wanting answers to your medical questions. I have a 17 year old cousin who has been all over the country trying to find out what is actually wrong with her. Her parents are frazzled. My best friend had a minor stroke a couple of weeks ago, and they can’t figure out the exact cause. Please hang in there as much as possible. God bless you and your family. Cindi

    I hope you get the answers you are looking for soon. Focusing on today is definitely a great approach to life, although sometimes easier said than done. I found Eckhart Tolle’s book ‘The Power of Now’ quite inspiring in this respect. It can be difficult to get through, but for me it was worth it.

  • Deb May 12, 2009, 6:40 am

    I’m praying some answers will come soon!

  • jafer May 12, 2009, 1:56 pm

    Yes, you have lots to be thankful for. Enjoy now :)

  • debbie May 13, 2009, 9:09 am

    I hope everything is going OK and you are getting the answers you need.

    Oh, I’m sorry to hear about your health issues. A good friend of mine has MS, and that’s plenty to struggle with right there. You have the right idea about enjoying the present, though. I hope you had a great Mother’s Day.

    And it would be best if you will not bother by the things that are not happening yet. Be positive and have a happy disposition because it helps in keeping us healthy.

    I remember being that young, wow. talk about all the trouble I used to get myself into. Hope your Mother’s Day was super!

  • One Scrappy Gal May 14, 2009, 12:33 pm

    Good for you. I love the quote “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery. But today is a gift. That’s why they call it “the present””

    God bless Kung Fu Panda…without that movie I might not have ever heard it. :)

    Hope you are OK.

  • Baby Carriers May 14, 2009, 12:37 pm

    Way to muster up the positive attitude! You’re so right. That’s just the way it has to be done. Keep your chin up and enjoy your blessings! Happy Mother’s Day!

  • Pauline May 14, 2009, 2:45 pm

    My sister has been dealing with some weird health issues that they haven’t been able to figure out what was going on. First checked for MS and a host of other things. Not knowing is so frustrating. Thinking of you and hoping you feel better soon!

    Enjoy the day dear, live life to the fullest. Not knowing is part of the learning and growing process. It is really frustrating at times, but with the constant support and love of your family, friends, and acquaintances, I’m sure you’ll be able to go through things fine. I hope you are feeling better already :)

    Just seeing the baby makes our lives complete. It’s like we can deal with anything because of our children. We love them so much that we can not live with out them.
