Sitting here thinking about the last 5 years. In five years so much has changed. Divorce was never a word I thought would ever enter my life. Then again, when the truth did come out, the things I learned I never would have thought would enter my life! To be in the middle of a nasty divorce and be told you have Ovarian Cancer was a life changing event. I have gone from owning multiple homes, multiple cars and thinking my life was exactly what I thought is was going to be to having a condo I love and a car that I bought all on my own!
I have come to realize that while I no longer have the homes, I no longer have the UP KEEP on the homes and I am happy with that! I have never been one to enjoy doing yard work… now I don’t have too! I do enjoy getting the things I have gotten done! My kitchen, living room and bedroom are now done! Second bedroom and bathroom I think will be next year.. need a little time off!
I have managed to make each of the rooms free of possibilities of getting sick! Cloth is now leather and carpet is now a beautiful laminate floor. All rooms are painted and look amazing. The colors are now light and airy, no more dark brown and orange!
While this has been a lot work, looking at the rooms and realizing “I DID THIS” has been rewarding. I am so thankful God has given me more time. To be able to say 5 years ago that my life would get to where it is today, was, at that time, impossible. But, with the help of God, it is now proven to be possible.
I have learned that while I had all those things all those years ago, I am happier now with what I do have. God is good and has given me MY JOY BACK! YEA!
