Have you often ever wondered what simple means? It seems like more and more we live in such a fast pace life style and the day has done passed us by and nothing your truly wanted or desired was done? That is how it’s felt for me for some time, how about you? How did we get to be in a society that we had to have more and more? What happened to days when families gathered around the dinner table and talked about the days events, daddy’s and mommy’s read bed time stories and material things didn’t really matter? I think back through my life and for me as an adult some of my favorite times were when I took the time to do these things with my family. Then it seemed as my boys got to be teenagers it got less and less until it didn’t happen anymore? On a normal basis days go by and I don’t talk & barely see my boys, my grandkids have reached the stage where Grandma is kind of a thing of the past. As I sit and think about my life as it today I’m not happy? Several years back when I was living life on the road I was happy? It wasn’t because of material things and there were bad days that things happened but it seemed like dealing with the bad was easier because I was happy. Now I spend my days waiting for the next surgery, the next doctor appointment. I find I'm asking myself why? I am stuck in one place which isn’t pleasing. I miss my home on wheels, I miss new adventures. Is getting medical treatment worth giving up my happiness? When do you ask yourself about quality over quantity? Isn’t quality more important? Families no longer are close, instead there seems to be always that one or more who is causing chaos or havoc and in returns splits the family apart. When I was a kid family picnic’s or events were the highlight of the week, now family seems so distant? How and when did things change so much?
As you know In Feb 2013 we came home because of a family emergency with our oldest son and grandchildren. Then in Jan 2014 I came down ill and it’s going on 4 years later So I guess the question I’m sitting here asking myself is do I stay unhappy and have more surgery, more treatment or do I say enough and go enjoy life? Do you please your family or yourself? Do I go after the simple things in life my heart desires or do I stay and continue as I am?
