JANUARY 2, 2023
Well, it’s a new year and I’m thinking about all that has transpired in 2022. My friend Gwen has been battling a re-occurrence of cancer. I feel like I’ve been battling it with her. We’ve known each other since third grade. She has always been in my life one way or another. I have her on the prayer list at my church and will continue to pray for her and her family.
I’ve lived to see another year and in relatively good health. There is one challenge. I’ve been diagnosed with Glaucoma. I don’t like to say the word because that would mean claiming it, and I don’t want to do that. I started reading up on it and discovered that computers, cell phones, TVs, all contribute to exposure to harmful rays and over time it can’t be good for the eyesight. Your diet also plays a role in good vision. The doctor presented me with two choices: laser surgery or eye drops. Laser didn’t do me much good. I’m very disappointed in that outcome. Taking the drops means a lifetime undertaking. I refuse to do it for now. Apparently once you start, there is no stopping. The thought is so distasteful to me.
So, I’m looking at alternatives during these next 30 days and will see if there is some improvement in the eye pressure. I’m keeping my fingers crossed and will be praying a lot. I do belong to a Claver Organization prayer group that meets virtually every Tuesday to say the rosary.
I’m a firm believer in the power of prayer. I have witnessed its’ power in my own life!
Oh, I forgot to mention my obsession with Prince Harry and have pre-ordered his book “Spare” dropping on January 10, 2023.
I can’t help myself!
