Don’t Quit

When I finally decided that I wanted to write a blog, I knew that it was going to be a place where I could put my feelings to words.   I also knew that I wanted to write about things that mattered to me.   I could tell you this week how much I ran or worked out, and I can tell you what the garden looks like in winter or what I learned in the latest lecture I attended at the wildflower preserve.   But this week is a little different.

I went to visit my cousin this week in the hospital who has been diagnosed with amyloidosis.   I don’t pretend to be an expert in anything, so feel free to google what it is.   Suffice it to say, that it is not a good thing.  She’s been struggling with this for months and is in a very depleted, weakened condition.   My heart is very sad.  She is a sweet woman who always had a kind word and a warm smile for everyone.   I want her to not give up the fight, but it’s been very hard for her and her family as well.

Before we left, I went over to give her hugs and kisses and tell her that I loved her and I whispered to her:  Don’t quit.

All I ask this week is that you don’t quit.  Whatever it is that you’re fighting for or against, just don’t give up.  You can do this.
