Life's ups and downs

Yesterday - The golden rays began a day of anxiety and terror. The doctor had seen a bright spot on my x-ray the week before and I had to have a mammogram. I took a friend along who had gone through the whole thing and she did her best to calm me. I was sure that I would be having months of misery and treatments after the doctor made out the order for the mammogram.

The technician looked at the first plate then left to call my doctor. Something was wrong. I couldn't see anything. She came back and continued taking the pictures. My friend and I looked at them, we saw nothing unusual. The technician left the room again. When she returned, she had my report. I was fine, there wasn't anything in my breast!

Both of us were relieved. We went out to eat and laughed.

This morning - My newly acquired gray kitty lay dead on the road. I thought it was Tacky, at first. I went out to gather her up and then I saw her running for me from across the pasture. Grief and joy in a heartbeat, then grief for the gray again.

Yep - life is just a series of ups and downs and I would like to stay up longer than one day at a time...

  7. Sounds like you've been eating a box of chocolates - never knowing what you're going to get next!
    Breathe deeply (well as deep as you can) and say a thank you prayer. Sad about the kitten tho'
