update to 10 seconds

It occurred to me in the wee hours (my body is still very confused, having awakened at 4:00 am yesterday) that if I had written my blurb two years ago, a mention of my work would have been near the top of my list.

I was definitely someone who defined myself by the work I did (research/communications for a public sector union).

Cancer has made me re-define myself.

I miss working.

But the silver lining here (other than a renewed appreciation for the myriad other good things in my life) is that if it weren't for the cancer I would not have re-discovered my love for writing.

Which is something else I should have mentioned in my 10 second blurb.

you miss working?

laugh!

you're a full time mother & a full time wife and a full time cancer patient...

those are 3 of the hardest jobs you can possibly have, and you do well at ALL of them.

:) *hugs*

ps) i know what you mean, but i had to compliment you on how hard you "work" none the less.
