So much for keeping up with this site but this past April absolutely sucked for me. It began with Easter weekend when a good friend visited. We had an amazing time and then I came down with the flu. I didn't go to the doctor thinking it would run its course and then it morphed into a sinus infection. I dragged myself to work and tried to make each day count. On April 11, I received some devastating news. My aunt had passed away. I hadn't talked to her on Easter because I was barely able to stand up, let alone carry on a conversation. My aunt and I were close, she understood me in ways that many of my family members simply do not. I was devastated and kept beating myself up for not having one last conversation with her.
I could go on and on about my thoughts and feelings but I know that my aunt would tell me to get off my ass and quit feeling bad if she were reading this. I'm alive and well, finally over the flu. While the past month was difficult to say the least, my perspective has changed. Make each conversation and relationship count.
