Everything is Okay …
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee
I have been under the weather, and now … I feel much better. I don’t complain whenever I get sick … why?
Because I’m lucky to be here … lucky to be living in the first place. I do sometimes, cry when I am feeling extra pain. I’m just not perfect at all. But, I don’t complain … whine ‘woe is me, why me?’
I am a 16 year survivor of non-Hodgkins lymphoma … I shouldn’t be here today. Can you imagine how I felt when the oncologist told me those very words several months ago? I know I am fortunate to have another chance at life. I treasure it.
I almost died with congestive heart failure since battling cancer. I almost died when my son died. Those are just three battles I have come through out of many. Like the strong redwood tree … I am still standing.
Once in a while I stop writing for a week or so, if I’m not well. I have a ‘million’ health problems now … but, that’s okay … I’m here 🙂 I begin writing as soon as I’m better. Just know I will be back as soon as possible … I miss keeping in contact. I miss you.
Everything is okay …
