Too long!

It has been way too long since I've posted on my blog. Maybe since I've stopped posting on Facebook, I'll post here from time to time - epicaricacy related or not. 

Lessons learned this fall:  What a fall we had!  Our sister-in-law died, which was very sad. She shouldn't have died with C Diff - it is totally treatable. But, they were in remote Canada and couldn't get help in time. I think there was probably some malpractice involved, but that's another story. She was only in her 50s. 

But, for us, the worst thing was out son being assaulted, having been hit in the head and receiving a fractured skull and subdural bleeding. He was in critical condition, and I was told that he could  possibly spend his life in assisted living. For weeks I was a mess, as you can imagine. However, miraculously, he has recovered almost completely. At the same time our daughter had a seizure and was at Northwestern with injuries to her mouth and teeth. She is doing better too, though for weeks it was an awful time. 

I've learned the importance of health and putting your life in perspective. Who cares if you lose your iPad or if you are not able to buy that coat you want, etc.? Keep life in perspective. What are your priorities?  Enjoy your time here on earth. And most of all, be happy.

It's strange Kalleh, how clumpy the universe is sometimes. Good things happen to me in twos and threes, I won't go to a wedding for a year and then two very good friends will have weddings on the same day. Bad things happen to me too, illness, death in the family, unexpected home repairs. It sounds like you are through the other side of this rough patch, and it can't hurt to gain perspective.

About a year ago, I was travelling, and the airline forced me to check my carry-on, even though it turned out the plane has plenty of overhead bin space. I was griping about this to the guy next to me, and asked him where he was headed. He told me he was on his way to a funeral, and I instantly felt like a complete idiot. How many times would you spend waiting 20 minutes for your luggage rather than having a loved one die? As sad as it was for that man, it perversely made my day a whole lot better.

Very unfortunate! I hope you count your blessings!! And yes, health is super important... it's one of my topics I talk about developing in my blog (

Like the motivational speaker Tai Lopez says "wealth, health, love and happiness".

Hope you keep on keepin' on and I found your blog interesting!

In love, a woman may be very strong, it may be very weak. Either love others, either to accept other people's love, fall in love once, that someone ordered her to fall in toward the fire, she would willingly obey.
