It has been a rough past month. An abnormal result on my yearly GYN exam meant having to come back for a colposcopy and several painful biopsies. The ten-day wait to hear the results felt like a lifetime. But today, the call from the doctor’s office was nothing but good news – all cells normal; no cancer!
I had just come out of the bank when I realized I had missed the call. I sat in the car for a few moments after hanging up and cried. Hard. It’s difficult to keep all the emotions, fears, regrets, etc., bottled up so you can focus on the things you have to get done for everyone else. For this moment, it was MY time to take care of ME To close one chapter and begin a new one.
I drove to work, feeling lighter and more positive about life in general. Things I wanted to do but haven’t done I’m now considering once again. Walking to work, this little “gift” only confirms that there are greater powers looking after you.
Don’t ever forget that. I certainly won’t.
