PMA Wednesday - 8th Edition

Welcome to PMA Wednesday!

Every week when I think about my PMA Wednesday, I think I am going to post one thought, then something changes and makes me go a different direction.

This week, I was going to post all of the Geico commercials. I laugh every time I watch one. Laughing is one of the ways I stay positive. If you've ever raised a teenager, you understand laughter can get you through some pretty tough years. Fortunately, my "bonus" daughter is grown, out of the house, and today will move into her first home.

However, her Great Granny isn't do as well. She turned 97 this last May. She has been in and out of hospitals this summer. We found out yesterday that she has gall stones now. Surgery is not an option. Another doctor is expected to see her today, but they may be moving her into hospice care. I am trying to stay positive for my husband and his family.

Unfortunately, my family has been through this before. My dad had hospice care at the end of his six year battle with colon cancer. We discovered that "Laughter is the best medicine!" In fact, the night he passed, my mother, brother, his fiance, and myself were having dinner in the kitchen and entertaining ourselves by hanging spoons off the ends of our noses. 

Guess what day it is? Hope your day is happier than a camel on Wednesday!

  3. My thoughts are with your family :) I would agree that in times of stress or sadness - you just need to laugh and smile! It really helps!

    Thanks for sharing :)
