WOW, What Year!

Sunday, December 20, 2020

WOW, what a year this has been.

I read about how many people are angry that this year has been so crappy, they are so lonely, depressed and sad, wishing for a different outcome, and I get it. I felt that way myself until this morning when it happened to be the 1st year Lungiversary of my DHs Double Lung Transplant.

He was so very tired, so very weak, worn out, and sick.......

What a LONG year we have indured. We have been in isolation since December 20th, 2019 and just when we were hitting the 3 month mark and getting ready to get out and stretch our wings, COVID hit the seen and back in the doors we disappeared.

God has been so good to us through it all, SO very good...... We have wanted for nothing, had our wages stay the same, had verbal communication with everyone, and have gone without anything we have needed. I do not understand why some have terrible issues and some do not, Its a difficult thing to understand. All I do know for sure, is that God kept this man in his hands and gifted him with a new beginning on life.


I do know that this is all so bitter sweet because somewhere out there is the family of the man that gave my DH the best gift that he has ever received, another year with me, his 4 grown children, his 13 grandchildren, and his 10 great grandchildren and for that we will always keep then close in our thoughts and prayers.......



This has been an AMAZING year after all!

    emoticon I am so thankful myself that my husband was successfully treated for prostate cancer in 2019. I am so thankful that our son, DIL and 3 1/2 year old grand-daughter have moved back home from Los Angeles. What a year 2020 has been for all of us! Your story about your husband's recovery from his lung transplant is amazing! May you and your families blessings continue in 2021!

    HAPPY LUNGIVERSARY TO BOTH OF YOU!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    A whole year is a wonderful length of time and to think you managed all of this during a pandemic, an election, and the real birth of a racial movement which is finally gaining traction among people of all races!

    I'm so glad you posted this good news! People are all different and you and your husband are part of the "glass is half full" variety. Others, as you said, cannot seem to focus on what is still good in their lives, which brings them further unhappiness. We continue to pray for those sad people because they need our help.

    Love and Hugs,
    Susan
