About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

A Log in My Eye

Venting Part 2
 
Well, the person who I felt criticized by read my blog, and it just got worse from there!
 
Never argue by text or try to resolve an issue!  The texting just went on and on, until it did get worse!
 
I read this chapter this morning:
Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye
 
We all have our imperfections.  We all have our own logs.

I hope that you are able to resolve this. It is a terrible feeling to be on the outs with someone. Prayers.

I'm sorry it happened and hope you can feel better about it soon. I have always gotten my feelings hurt over the years so I know how bad you can feel. Wish I could give you a big ole hug! LOVE your new short hair cut. I love short hair...so much easier to take care of! Lots and lots of hugs, Diane
