It’s been a very long time since I last wrote a blog. Let’s see if the old grey matter is still working.
My life has gone through a big change, now confined to bed. I remember the times when I used to think
“oh to just stay in bed for a day would be heaven”.
It’s not what I thought it would be like at all. One goes through a time of frustration at oneself that it’s happened, spend time talking to yourself. Yes, I do answer myself back too, telling myself
“What an idiot I am, these things happen to lots of people, why shouldn’t it happen to you, You’re no better than the next person, get on with life, live the best you can in the circumstances you are in. Work on the things you can do not the ones you can’t.”
I have learned to make lots of things using youtube, the kids often say
“Oh no what she going to do now, we have no room for more of her decorations”
They seem to come around in the end, as I need help with lots of it as my hand doesn’t work too well now either.
The main thing I have learned is that I can still give the kids the same love I always did just from my bed. I learned to remember that kids love is just the same as before, as long as I still help them, be there for them, listen to what they have to say.
Thankfully only one young one at school now, others are working. My daughter and I have worked together for a long time, now she’s looking after me she says, thanks to her I can stay at home, be still here to help in what I can. Life doesn’t always give you roses that smell nice, they often have thorns as well.
It’s our job to work around the thorns and make the best display of them we can. Like a garden it takes time and effort to get the best display, I am working on mine still.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
