The Joys of having CF

The Joys of having CF

Saturday, July 23, 2016


It's been a while since I've done a blog post. 
This summer has been a fast one. In the blink of an eye it seemed as though June came and gone and now it's September. The start to my favorite Wisconsin season, fall. 
In the past couple months we celebrated my grandparents 68th wedding anniversary. Isn't that incredible?! 
It makes me so proud, and I only hope one day I become that lucky. I love my grandparents so much. 
For a while I've been having the same few thoughts going on, and I haven't quite known how to put all my thoughts down...until today. 
Perspective. Such a big yet simple word and yet so complicated. 
With having CF it's given me the great opportunity to see situations in a much different perspective. I always try to see the good in every situation. When things happen I examine them differently. When I get sick and go in the hospital-to me it's just another routine. When I think of the future I think short term then long term. When some think about reality I think about dreams. When others think about how bad something is I think of hope. 
CF has blessed me with having a different perspective on life. I try not to hold grudges, I try to get along with everyone. When I get sick and go into the hospital for me it's routine and I think about how the IV's will help and how I'll get better. When I think of the future I think short term then long. Short term because I don't want to miss ANYTHING! None of us know if tomorrow's promised for us but I want to take in everything I can and plan for the future. Sometimes reality is good but I choose to dream. I choose to give myself something to look forward to. Things to stay healthy for...hope. 
Sometimes we all forget to stop and smell the roses, but it's the kind of perspective we have in situations that make the biggest difference. 

I will be writing soon, I have a CF appointment next week, so my prayer is my numbers go up and I will update after. 

Till next time, ~God Bless
