My 73-rd Birthday.

So, today is my 73-rd Birthday and I’m alive and OK.
As you know I’m living on borrowed time for many years now, battling cancer, RA, fibromyalgia and other…
No. I’m not complaining. It is what it is. I’m thankful for every day of my complicated life.
Is not easy, but I go on, slowly, but I keep going…

And now, with coronavairus raging all over the World all my problems become, I will say much smaller.
And now I have more choices. I can die of cancer, coronavairus, heart attack or anything else – today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year or who knows… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
Only God knows.

Thanks God I believe in God and Afterlife. This helps to put all the horror of the Pandemic in different perspective.

In few weeks our lives totally changed. What was important few weeks ago become meaningless.
We have to cope with totally new problems and we don’t even know what to expect in the future.

I’m OK, but I’m overwhelmed by other people suffering.
I can not help others. All I can do is pray for people I know and those who I don’t know.

One of my Friends who is not very religious asked:
“So you are praying and praying and what…..”
And I told her:
“So you and people I know are doing OK. God is listening.”

This too shall pass.

God bless you all.

  1. Happy Birthday Anna. I never understood the expression β€œliving on borrowed time β€œ. God knows the number of our days. You are here because He wants you here.❀️

  2. My heart goes out to you. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. I started my blog after that diagnosis. I was re-diagnosed about 10 years later, and, just last night wrote my latest post regarding my emergency visit. These verses have been a great comfort to me-proverbs 4:20-22. There are SO many more! Take God at his word, Dear Friend. If I may encourage you, healing is found in it’s pages. Warmest regards, Stephanie

It will be special birthday in crisis time you and all will survive to greet you back in the next year one more time with happy smiles. Cheers. God be with you .

  4. Happy Birthday πŸ™‚ I love your little choke about being able now, to die of one more thing. Reminds me of one, I heard before: would be terrible to wind up at an old age at the hospital having to die of absolutely nothing πŸ™‚ Keep going strong!

  5. Greetings and hugs, dear Anna.

    “Pray and pray and pray and what?”
    Pray and pray more.
    What is the alternative?

    Seek peace, birthday girl.

  7. Happy birthday from this lucky, healthy octogenarian. Keep on praying; I’ll join you. Even in these dark days, there’s plenty of grace and peace and love to go around — we just need to keep spreading it.
