I am now in the middle of reading Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. This is a book that I have heard of but never got around to reading. I just saw the author the other day on The Colbert Report promoting her new book The Signature of All Things. I thought I might like to read one of her books, so again I went to the library site to see if any were available for a Kindle download. I found Eat Pray Love and started reading. I can’t tell you how I feel like this book came to me right when I needed it.
The one thing that I have been dealing with the past week is a whole lot of worrying and the blues. I have heard that depression is something that might come on. Well, it has come, and I am trying my hardest to keep my chin up. The thing is, it doesn’t last long and comes and goes in waves. It’s not something that I have had to deal with in the past.
The nurse that I had on Monday said that some people, when faced with a serious illness, can go through almost a grieving stage like losing a loved one. I guess it might be a combination of my body going through all these changes and it being the holiday season. Who knows? I feel that talking about it with Mark and my family has helped. I am just really looking forward to spending Christmas with our families next week.
I did give the cereal a try, and it was quite nice. The texture and flavor of the little grains of sesame seed and barley were a pleasant change of pace from the steel cut oats. Thanks, old friend!
