What The Holidays No Longer Hold For Me

Published on 11/23/2014

I started off the weekend with some not-so-great news from my doctor - apparently some of my cells are not behaving and have to be removed….they’re as irregular/odd as me!  Anyway, needless to say that by the time I left the doctor’s office my mood was not exactly good.  When I reached home, I was in such a slump that I had to crawl up out of the pit I had dug to get out of the car and into the house…..where I immediately hid deep within the blankets.

I usually am one of those positive thinkers, pulling others out of their slumps, motivating, guiding, etc.  But now, there wasn’t a single soul out there for me.  Bonnie, my baby sister, is the only real best friend that I have ever had throughout life….we were born 2 years and 5 minutes apart ….. sort of amazing, ay? 

You see, my baby sister fell in a coma the day after Thanksgiving last year and I had to release her from her tubes and hardware on December 5….Bonnie didn’t even last 60 seconds….  The worst part was that on Thanksgiving Day she was told she would be home in time for Christmas!  We had all celebrated in her room … that call to go to the hospital IMMEDIATELY on the day after came out the blue.  I was, and still am, devastated.   When I can get it all down on paper the way I want….well one day I’m writing a tribute to her.


Back to me deep within the blankets…..I started having ‘flashbacks’, some good/some borderline PTSD….and then I remembered one day at the grocery store with Bonnie.  She was already wheelchair-restricted at that time, but wanted everyone to ‘push’ her all the time.  I truly didn’t mind, but her doctor had said I was hurting her by not letting her do it for herself as much as possible…I ‘babied’ my baby sister.  Well at the grocery store, I wheeled her in and once inside proceeded to the fruits, etc. nearby….she waited, called my name (at least 5 times, each progressively LOUDER and then started using unladylike words as she wheeled her way to me.  As she sat there with that awful, hateful, mean, face panting and glaring at me….I wiped away my tears, kissed her on the cheek and whispered in her ear “you DID it, Bonnie, you DID it!”  Haha….those people in the grocery store must have thought…oh, who cares what they thought…we laughed, cried and bought the groceries.

Those words in the picture mean a lot to me, I have used them many times….for other people.  But while I sit here typing and crying, I can hear Bonnie whisper in my ear…’you can do this, Rosie, you can do this’……

Sorry, guess I’m getting a little too wordy here.  The point I want to get across is that, through whatever comes our way in life…we can and must overcome adversity.  Bonnie was going to be my ‘partner’ once she came home and together we were going to make this ‘online thing’ work to our success; now I’m still here and trying my best to realize our dream…..  The other day I was even considering starting some sort of group, or create a membership site.  In my research and from various people in both networking groups that I belong to, I noticed there are many out there who want to start their own ‘membership’ sites.  So who knows?  Maybe once the dust settles, I’ll do a more in-depth research…
