I’ve been absent the last week or so-I had an injury to my lower right forearm, which also happens to be my dominant arm. Typing, writing, mousing, have been painful at best, with me walking around with my arm raised in the air so blood doesn’t pool. There was a little cause for concern, when my body was encountering difficulty fighting the visible infection. I actually asked for friends and family to send extra love my way because I needed it! It’s times like these that I realize I am surrounded by awesome individuals that care about me and my well-being, and all I need to do in my time of need, is ask.
Why don’t I ever ask? Why don’t I put myself first? Also, how did I get so lucky as to have all of these people in my life?
Then, there are those individuals that reached out that I haven’t heard from in years to find out what was going on, I shared with them, and then I never heard from them again. This naturally has me thinking. Why don’t I hear from you regularly, or at least every now and then? Why do you only reach out in my (rare) time of need and then disappear again once you find out? Do you actually care? So, my thoughts to you this Thursday as I start this August off blogging again now that typing isn’t too painful, are this: is it you, or is it them?
