One Day Left on Earth

Posted by on Sep 25, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I was recently asked if I had one day left on earth, what would I do? What a question that is! It really got me thinking and wondering if that was the real case what would I really do or want? First, I would gather my immediate family and tell them how much I truly love them all. I would share a moment with each one individually and tell them something special that makes me smile about them. I think secondly, I would do the same with my closest friends. I was told once that if in a lifetime you have 5 real...

Thinking back over the years, I have had some wonderful teachers. I really loved all my teachers but I can say since I was so ill in elementary school, they were some of my favorites. Remembering all the correct names is something I cannot do and do not want to name the wrong ones but I did have a few come and visit me at CHOP and bring me classmate cards and gifts while I spent months in the hospital. These wonderful heroes in my eyes, were truly loved by me and if they are still with us and happened to read...

Ten Things I Learned From Being Ill

This was very interesting to me when I finally sat down to think about it. 1.) I thought I was the only one so ill. 2.) I was shocked to find out that in fact, I was not the only one. 3.) It was important to me to get well. 4.) My parents were amazing people (I knew that before I became ill but really saw it during those 2 years). 5.) My siblings came along for the ride and treated me just as they should, like siblings, normal torture and bickering. 6.) I love my siblings for treating me the same as always and not...

Did you ever wonder what life would be like if something very intricate had never happened. I sometimes ponder on this but not too long. For me, what if I never became sick as a child???? What would my childhood have been like? My teen years? Would I have been athletic? Would I have moved to New York to pursue fashion, modeling, or even nursing? What if I did not have to spend months at a time in the hospital? Would my friends have been the same? Boyfriends? Or even my husband? Wow, a big mouthful of...
