I resolve...

I've never been good at making New Years' resolutions...   yeah, I should probably lose that last 5 pounds... it was 10 yesterday but the flu is good for something right?  I should probably teach my kids to cook - and I should probably spend more time in religious reflection.  Somehow though - writing these things down on a scrap of paper never does the trick... maybe a tattoo?  Oh wait, maybe not...

this year - I am resolving something, you see this has been a little bit of a “come to God” month for me - with two dear friends/relations who are incidentally YOUNGER than me suffering from maladies that I have formerly “poo-poohed” being as I am far too young and vibrant to be victim to such things... well - apparently I am not because both of these people were younger - and more vibrant than I!  (and no, they're not being victim to these things - they're doing great)  With complete respect for their various trials I will not go into depth, but I'll take the warning to heart and this year I resolve to get a check up - my doctor won’t recognize me it’s been so long, but I’ll be making that phone call.  I'm willing to endure a little pinch/squish/look the other way and pretend that this is not the most uncomfortable procedure in the world for that little peace of mind.  

So - to my two dear friends/relations who have inspired me - I love you and thank you - and if you need a meal brought in I make a MEAN homemade chicken noodle soup!

Amen! I was just thinking about that the other day. I work in the cancer department and I get to read A LOT of info...so it makes me think ALOT!

A great resolution! No one likes the squishy pinchy procedure but it does save lives. It's really funny when I go for that, as I don't really have much to pinch (sorry TMI, haha) Prayers for your friends and their healing. I think sometimes God sends us wake up calls -- to get us moving in the right direction!

I agree with that resolution! It's good every now and again to do those hard things..though it often takes a big push or scare to do it.

Way to look at illness as a good weight loss plan!
True true about the other stuff. Funny how we have an imaginary age in our head where life threatening illnesses are more acceptable. In reality I don't think I'll ever feel I'm old enough to have a bad health scare. Even when I'm 95. So it's a good reminder that it can hit whenever.

I'm with you - I made my annual appointing last Friday. I already have to move it to accomodate Dear Hub's work schedule.

I wonder why it's been two years since I've seen a doc?

Here's to getting pinched and being healthy!!
