From the Fall Blog Challenge by Melanie Holtsman, last week’s topic is about Small Moments
Challenge: Sometimes your day is not about the planned events but instead it's the small moments that make us think, reflect and savor what we are doing/learning. Tell about a small moment you had this week and what you learned or experienced in that moment.
I got behind on this challenge because my hubby has been experiencing health problems and we had to deal with it last week. The doctors saw something on his chest xray and sent him for a CT scan. Then we were referred to a pulmonologist. Of course all this has been scary for us and the fear of the unknown is pretty hard to deal with. Well, the pulmonologist basically told us that he couldn’t tell us anything. Whatever is in my husband’s body could be nothing or it could be pretty bad but the only thing we can do is watch it and wait. They will do another scan in a year to determine if any changes have taken place. Since my hubby is not feeling bad, we hope that this is nothing. But if it is something, then he will begin to feel bad.
We ended up sitting down and discussing this. Since we can’t do anything about it, we have decided we will live our lives as we have been doing which is enjoying each day and making sure we are living it to the fullest. No one knows what the future may bring but we should be doing the best that we can. We plan to enjoy each other and our friends and family as much as we can. By being more aware of the possibilities, we need to make sure we take nothing for granted and appreciate everything we have more.
