A Long Time

I'm talking about being sick for a long period of time. I used to think that it was just awful, to suffer for a long time. I now believe it's a way for God to give the sick person time to forgive old wounds., let anger go, and then get reacquainted with your faith or your higher power.

I had a bout with cancer a while back, and the time I spent in bed or laying down gave me a chance to think of all the hurts I had received or caused others. One of the hurts gave and received, I had drug it around for thirteen years. Just a bet over the top, now that I think of it. Anyway, I had been praying to God for him to take it. A family situation came up that made me call the hated one. The minute I talked to her the hate and anger went away. I was not dragging it around anymore.

If you have hurt someone, ask for the courage to right the wrong. All the things we pray for shall be answered, but it will be on Gods time not our time. Sometimes we don't know he answered right away. You have to pay close attention.

The long period of illness makes you stop and realize what a wonderful thing your husband and children are. How great your life has been and that is not the money you earned. Stop and think about all the beautiful memories you will always have. No one can take these from you. Life is short and don't spend a lot of it being angry.

When I am saying this stuff, don't think I am saying that my life or yours, will be with out hard times and sadness. We are in the real world here. How we handle the bad times is very important. If we work together on the bad things it's always easier. Hard times will either make you closer or break you apart. Go to your higher power for strength . He will help you through it if you ask.

Attitude is everything in life. If you are being as pleasant as you can every day, the other people you meet will also be pleasant in return(for the most part) If you are complaining all the time, the people you meet will get tired of hearing that. They will not see you so often. It doesn't take any more time to be happy then being angry.

Lets face it our lives are made up with our family and our friends.
