Life is hard... or, am I getting older?

This has been a hard summer for me. Is hard the right word? Stressful, yes. Feel like I'm getting older? DEFINITELY!!!

First my cat, then I get sick and take like what feels forever to get better. Then my dad gets sick again--but he's better now--WOOT. Then, my husband's father passes away suddenly 10 days ago... then we find a suspicious mass in my breast--not cancer--WOOT. then a friend goes in the hospital with chest pains--he's good now--whew. I'm definitely good and full with the ups and downs.

usually I love summer. usually my birthdays don't bother me. I'm not so sure about this one. I think I'm definitely feeling my age and those of the loved ones around me.

I love autumn more, hopefully it is easier on my heart.

It always seems like these kinds of crises come in waves and have no apparent relation to age. My worst such spell -- which lasted nearly a year and involved about 50% of the major players in my extended family -- happened when I was 22. Surely you've seen the last of them for awhile. Chin up! Fall should be glorious!
