Worries and Support

Photo courtesy of estgirl99 at flickr.com

I'm worrying about my friend right now. I'm not worried that she will get bad news, because I've been praying about that. I'm worried because I know she's scared and nervous. I wish I could be there with her to give my support. Since I can't be there in person, I'm supporting her via the internet. Hey, that's how we met and became friends, so it's appropriate that I send her my support the same way. So, if you want to give your support too - run over to Skittles' blog and let her know how much she's loved or leave a comment here saying how wonderful she is, and I'll make sure she sees how important she is to all of us.

My great-aunt-in-law had a bunch of medical tests run to see if her heart could handle a surgery she desperately needs. Without this surgery, she would never walk again and would be in constant, severe pain. We were notified last night that the tests were complete, and she has been approved for surgery. Her surgery is tomorrow.

I think I need to go read the yellow pages or research home owner insurance - anything to keep my mind from worrying. Yes, I'm a worrier. I always have been. However, worrying about people I care about tends to be very dangerous for me. You see, there's a standing joke among my family and friends. They say that if Misty is worried about someone, she shouldn't even get out of bed. You see, I have a tendency to get injured when I'm worrying about someone. No, it's not because my mind is occupied - I don't know how to explain it. I get injured doing normal things which are routine parts of my day. Maybe I get injured in order to take my mind off of worrying? I think I'd rather go read that phone book.

I'm a worrier too. As for injuries ... well, I'm accident-prone, it seems, so they happen whether I'm fretting or calm.

Glad to hear the test went well. Thinking of your great aunt-in-law.

Misty I'm on my way over now (a day late, I'm sorry)

I came to tell you I left you love at JameeForever, so if you find a moment, come over. In the meantime, (((hugs))) to you. I cannot tell you enough how happy I am when I come to your blog. xoxo

Misty, My Darling Friend ... Your heart encourages and warms my spirit.

(but please do tend to peace and serenity for your own well-being)

I'm a worrier, too. My best friend says I "awfulize," imagine the worst and then am relieved when it's not so bad after all. At any rate, as a sister in worriment, if you find a way to "take your mind off worrying," please share. Because damn if I ever can! (Now off to visit Skittles.)

D...

I'm late to the party, but I saw the update that Skittles is doing great. You are such a great friend to people, you really are.

Please keep us updated on your great aunt-in-law. I hope it all goes well!

Sanni

I´m sooooooo glad everything´s okay. We all love Barb - and you! ♥
