During my husband’s battle with cancer I learned a lot. I learned how to jump start the car in the dark and race to the hospital at warp speed without getting a ticket. I learned how to give a shot (step 1. close your eyes). I even learned how to make our health insurance company pay bills they tried to get out of paying. Hello, Blue Cross? Do you really mean to not pay the anesthesiologist? Was my husband supposed to be awake for the procedure? Or maybe you’d have preferred he scrub in and assist? But the biggest lesson I learned came at the end of Stu’s life when he said, “Susan, I miss my life.” Then and there I promised myself never to miss a moment of my life again. For more, click below. Thanks!
Are You Missing Your Life?

Thanks Susan, you have good advice I keep telling myself. I am learning to be on my own, would have been married 58 years in Oct, lost the love of my life in May. Hard to be strong and cheerful. God and friends are keeping me from too many pity parties.
Thank you and God bless,
