learning to travel light...
If anything at all, dealing with melanoma has caused me to re-examine my life. I realize I have held on to sorrows... for relationships that will never be as close as I would like; to hopes and dreams... that will never be realized; to losses... that will not be replaced.
These things have weighed me down; I need to let go and just move on. Some of them have been my dearest hopes and dreams... but, they are just not going to happen. I'm not a good "letter-goer"... tenacious that way... stubborn to a fault. But, I'm determined (also the thing that gets you in trouble about NOT letting go) and more than that... I have asked God to help me let go. I have faith that Help is on the way.
Last Saturday, I drove my big old Fatty Patty (name of my SUV) and traded her in for a lighter, more fun way to move about. I'm leting go... travelling light. I want to savor the years I have left...
Meet Jubilee, she's the first in many more changes I hope to see in the next year. And, yes, her name is significant to me.
One thing that won't change is my enjoyment of the simple pleasures!! A Coke Zero in a sweet "coozie" prize from The Little Men and Co.! They really know how to make a Noni feel loved!! Plus, the Moon Pie place brings a wonderful memory from one of our "Griswold Vacations". Gotta love that!
SIL, Brian has started his chemo treatments and is tolerating them as well as can be expected. Please remember him in your prayers. Thank you so much.
