SoCS – Time seems so short

I’ve posted recently how me and my fiance have been dealing with health issues the past few months.  For me it was just a slow recovery from my surgery in December.  For my fiance, well, we finally found out why he’s been struggling so much the past few months.

We just spent a grueling few days in the hospital and have to check back in tomorrow for him to have some pretty invasive surgery on Monday.  Needless to say, this is going to be my last post for a while.

We are both pretty private people, so I’m not going to go into too much detail here, but any prayers or positive thoughts sent our way would be much appreciated.

For Song Lyric Sunday, my sister is going to take over my blog to post the theme for the next few weeks as well as her own submission.  I think things went well the last time she helped out and I have no doubts you will all be in good hands.

I’ve been thinking about time a lot in the past few days – how sometimes it feels like it moves so slowly, but then there are times, like now, when it feels so short, like there just isn’t enough of it.

It’s hard to live in the present moment when you have something so big looming in front of you, but I’m going to do my best.  Today is all about spending time and getting things in order because the next few weeks will be all about hospitals and recovery (god willing).

I know I haven’t been around much lately, but I am so grateful for this community.  I consider many of you friends and know we would actually hang out if we ever got to meet in person.  Who knows, perhaps this will become a lifeline in a dark time and it will help me get my thoughts out.  For now though, it just feels burdensome and almost like it’s taking me away from where I actually need to be, which is right next to the man I love.

Happy Saturday everyone!

  1. Oh Helen, I’m so sorry this is happening. It’s so hard when it seems like life is piling on the stressors, the lessons. I used to have a therapist that told me times like this were “Gifts from the Universe!” I say, gimme the damn receipt. I’m returning the sucker!!

    Hang in there and I get the burden part but do feel free to dump (download) here if it helps.

    • Thank you. I truly appreciate your support. I’m not sure how much time I’ll have to just dump here, but I do know I can, so thank you. I’m just hoping this is the universe setting is up for an amazing future and not something else entirely. 😏


  2. Helen, I haven’t known you before. SOCS brought me over. Sorry about your health concerns; I do pray that you will have peace, comfort, and faith. Much can be done in the medical field now, and the Lord can and often does given added wisdom to those who are out to help you. Psalms 118:7 (KJV) says, “The Lord taketh my part with them that help me…” Peace to you as you go through this time. I am marking your follow.

  3. Helen, that sounds really tough and scary. I will be thinking of you and your fiance on Monday. I hope everything goes well. I’m sure all of us who consider ourselves your friends in the WordPress community will be sending good vibes and positive thoughts. Take care xx

  5. Yikes. As you approach your marriage, now the “in sickness and in health” part decides to show its face. Ugh.

    If this place is burdensome that just means you probably need to step back. It will be here for you whenever you are ready to return. You will and the two of you will be on your way toward a future full of life and love together.

    Take care of each other and all the best. I know how scary medical stuff can be. Thankful we have modern medicine to depend on, but still frightening. See you here when things are better.

  6. Positive thoughts headed your way. You must be scared. I hope if you find you need to talk, and there’s no one around to share your feelings with, this is the place to do it. I know, I don’t know you, but I can see you have friends on here. The blogging community is amazing:)
