For those of you who don’t know these past two years have been what you might call a lesson in endurance for me.My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago, after a surgery which has left her lopsided and a round of chemotherapy she is okay. A week after her surgery my dad survived a heart attack. Everybody here has been out of work for at least a year. Just when I thought things were on the way to getting back to normal I found out something which makes sad all over again. My sister’s boyfriend’s mother just got told that her multiple sclerosis is worsening rapidly. I consider this wonderful lady to be my friend, hearing that was like getting hit in the face. Apparently I deal with awful stuff happening to me better than I do when it happens to a friend.
