A Wake Up Call

Logged into Gotta Pixel this morning, checked the moderators area. Bam! One of our mods is in the hospital, had a heart attack yesterday some time. Her daughter left the message for us so we would know why she was not around today. Her mother, who she is care giver to, is due to go in for some surgery tomorrow. Yes, she has been tired, and yes, she has had more stress. But a heart attack? She is "around" my age. I noticed that friends on line were posting prayers, get well wishes. I also noted that my "on line friends" I chat with, all stopping in to say hi. First question? How are you? Then we talk about our friend, Mary Lynn.

Are the rest of my friends doing what I am doing? Thinking about everyone they have lost, from what, at what age. Realizing time is flying by. We are all complaining about being tired. Too much to do, not enough time. How do we put our lives back into some order...for me personally, how do I find the time to do what I want to do, along with what I must do, and still have time for giving to friends, family. What are my priorities? How do they fit with my goals? The thought that is never far from my consciousness "How is Mary Lynn doing?" Concentrate, think, plan. But!?! Time is racing. My thoughts race also. The wake up call has come. Do I answer?

Isn't that SO true. We have to occassionally sit back and refocus our goals. Sometimes we get going on tangents that were once good, but now have gone down dirt roads. We have to take time to reorganize.

Mary Lynn's heart attack sure shocked us. I just hope that she is doing better.
