just remember life goes on

2013-03-19_1918Life has been  tumultuous since 28 December, but things seem :::knock on wood::: to falling back into order and now I can journal on a regular schedule and for this, I’m thankful.

So, after having been in hospital, at a rehab centre and then at home, my Grandmother – at the age of 92 – left this world for a better place.  I was extremely close to her and in the last year, I found it hard to see her deteriorate as she did. 😦  I’m extremely thankful that I had one final visit with her the week before she passed — it was priceless (as I stated in a previous journal entry). I miss her terribly, but she’s still in my heart.

So, imagine dealing with a loss like this and then waking up one morning — 12.46 AM to be exact — in the most incredible pain. Kidney stones. KIDNEY STONES!  Let me assure you that it’s a pain like no other pain in this world — and I’ve had several women who’ve had children and kidney stones say, “Bryce, now you know what it’s like having a kid – except the pain with kidney stones is much worse.”  Thank God I cannot get pregnant. 🙂

And that’s the mayhem from March — work has been incredibly stressful as of late as well, but the next two weeks will help alleviate all of that stress so long as everyone else does their part to make it so.  So, if you’re reading this and you pray … send those my way and for all those involved in this two week time frame. 🙂

So, therapy went out of the window from mid-February until last week — and now,I feel like I’m being able to get back to where I was and that’s a good feeling! 🙂

It’s such a beautiful day … the weather is perfect and with that being said – I’m out of here for today!  Just as Stella had to get her groove back, I’ve got to get mine back with writing this blog — so, bear with me — it’ll be back to “normal” (whatever normal is) before you know it!  Have a great rest of the weekend! 🙂

Shalom –
