Taking Life For Granted~   Leave a comment

I take life for granted.

I know I do.

I assume I will get up tomorrow and next week and continue on that way for another thirty to forty or so years.

No one is promised a tomorrow but I do know I have always felt like I will live to be 100 or so.

But the day to day life I take for granted.

I just assume there will always be a tomorrow.


My husband has a growth on his arm that looks about the size of a small orange.

We go to the doctor next week to see what the MRI said.

I don’t think it is cancer.

I mean yes of course it could be but I think it must just be a cyst or something like that.

But if it is cancer I know he will do whatever it takes to get rid of it.

But after losing Cyndi two months ago I know and honestly have always known that we all are promised a death.

I am no exception and neither is my husband.

Losing Cyndi was rough.

I honestly can’t imagine a life without Rick, my husband, in it.

I have known him for forty years.

He has been in my life that long.

I just can’t see living life without him in it.

Yes of course I would have to if I had to.

But it just doesn’t seem fathomable


I of course hope I don’t have to find out for the next thirty years or so what living without him will be like.


Death is such an unpleasant part of living.
