Yes, indeed, sometimes life sucks! No nice way of putting it. I have been absent from my blog, struggling with some of that "life sucks" stuff. Truthfully, I've been too spent emotionally and physically to be able to even write about it. Then, I spent a lot of time debating whether I would blog about what's going on and I finally came to this conclusion:
I either have to be real and write about the real things going on in my life or quit blogging altogether because I am not the "put on a good show and fake it" kinda of gal. People who know me personally know that I am a brutally honest person no matter what you ask me...don't come to me expecting gloss lol. I believe in being honest in the kindest way possible but always honest. I'm just not wired to be otherwise... I can't count the number of times my honesty has turned people off but that's okay because I want people in my life who can accept me as I am.
This blog in future will have some very honest possibly painful subject content and if you can't handle it, I won't be offended if you don't read me anymore. There will be days when there will be no quilt content just "life sucks" content. But, I figure "hey, it's my blog!" so I will write honestly about what I want or need to. I have had some positive encouragement to blog about what's going on and to those people..."THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!"
So, this is the deal...my young, healthy, robust 48 year old husband has cancer.
There, it's said. I know lots of people have cancer and worse things and we all know people with cancer but until you have sat in that chair in the Dr's office and had it said to your face well....it's just another whole ballgame after that. It came as quite a shock because as I said...hubby is healthy as a horse otherwise. It all started as a very quick swelling in his neck that came out of nowhere in Feb. And that is all I can write for today.
