Dream....what do you dream of? Do you dream of a better career? Do you dream of a better life? There are a lot of things that I would like to accomplish in my life. But, the one thing that I have always dreamed and aspired to be is a writer. I have decided at the ripe old age of 42 to give it a try. I may never get published but I am going for the gusto to see my dream through.

Count Your Blessings

Do you remember to count your blessings? I try so hard to remember to count mine on a daily basis. Even with DeWayne on dialysis, I try so hard to remind myself that things could be so much worse. This June, DeWayne will have been back on dialysis for four years. He's only had one hospital admission during that time. Last June when he was in the hospital with the peritonitis, Dr. Boorgu told him that most patients have a bout with this particular infection within the first 18 months. DeWayne had made it 36 months before getting it...so I count that as a huge blessing. I remember when DeWayne had to go to UAB for his regular doctors visit, we would always be reminded how blessed we were. There were always tons of patients much worse off than DeWayne ever has been. We should always remember....there is ALWAYS someone much worse off than ourselves.
