Life moves on

Life moves on.  

I am preparing for surgery Monday that I pray will not be life threatening. I have had a cranial injury and preparation for the surgery has controlled my life that past several days. But I have come to a realization usually reserved for those who have passed from the world - life does indeed move on.  

I am involved with a number of projects and the testing and some health issues have put me behind. I hope to be back soon enough to complete what I need to do. But I have realized, even though I expect to come back very soon, everything I have on the table right now is going to get done.  

We often forget how insignificant life is. When you are going, no matter what you do in life, someone will take your place. They may not be as good as you. They may be better. But your spot in life will be fulfilled no matter what God-given talents you possess.  

I am not trying to be morbid, but dealing with health situations make you think. Every day has been endlessly long since I have not been able to function completely.  

The last time I had anything major from a medical standpoint I was in a coma and unaware of all of hoopla surrounding the seriousness of my issues.  

This time around it has been like watching hot dogs being made. You just don’t want to know. Patience is not a virtue for me. That has also made the days of preparation longer.  

If I am asked one more time what my name and birthday are I think I might scream. But I sure I will be asked often Monday. While patience is not one of my virtues I ask for yours.  

I have several projects in the works. Help is already on the way and I am sure I will get more assistance if needed. I have been told more than once in my life I needed to have my head examined for various reasons. Now all those who have made that comment to me will be able to see the process occur.  

In addition to having a lack of patience I am too pessimistic for my own good. I am trying to stay as positive as possible.  

Thanks to all of those whose who have already reached out. Even if you don’t know me please put me on your prayer lists. I have a strong faith that prayer can me the difference.
