Since November 2017, I have been in the hospital and rehab. I was released the Friday before last and now I am back in the hospital again. It’s been quite a journey, six surgeries and in two weeks and of the surgery; all to save my life.

The week of  July 9 that I spent at home was glorious! There’s no place like home as Dorothy said.

Blue skies

Dark chocolate

French fries

Rain droplets

Nine months

Devoured by affliction

But I won’t allow restriction

Rob me of my joy

No! I will continue to savor

Life’s pleasures

Like blue skies, chocolate, French fries, and spring showers

And all the treasures

That God has endowed to me.

  1. Awsome glimse into eternity and.the peace of God in times of suffering. This encourages me as I too am in a three year medical trail in which I am listening to our Fathers voice so that I might shout upon the housetops


  2. Having been through serious illness and surgeries I feel as though I could have written that poem, But here we are. It has given me an appreciation for life I wouldn’t have had if it did not happened. Good luck to you on your journey, Nancy.
