What was on my mind today

Friday, February 01, 2013

Well, not sure if I even want to share this as it is extremely personal. The only reason I am going to is because this situation is affecting me and I'm hoping that by putting in words it will help me release some anxiety. I'm just going to do it. I will try to keep it short but also just go with my thoughts as they come, so, forgive me if it seems like this jumps around.
Waiting in the waiting room for my little sister. She's 2 yrs younger than me but still my little sister. I'm looking at my mom and thinking, I can't believe all this woman has been through. She's the youngest of 9 and has lost all but 3 of her siblings.She married the love of her life and started a family. We are 5 children. My father passed just before he turned 50yrs old. That was 32yrs ago.She was younger than I am now when she lost my dad. She went to work after being out of the work force for more than 25yrs! She's never wanted to date,so all she's ever had was us. Mom left her job of 25yrs almost 2yrs ago, after being miss humiliated and miss treated. Too long of a story...She's 82 now. She's worked hard all these years. How much more can she take. My oldest brother had bleeding in his brain, he's had heart surgery, my older sister had breast cancer and went through cemo/radiation is now a 7 yr cancer survivor, she is also a widow. Each of my sisters and myself have had at least one child that has had a health scare at one point or another... And now my baby sister...I know she's worried, and tries to be pretend--- I'm worried too but I have to be strong and positive for her and my sister. It will be a week before we know for certain so until then I will pray for good news!
