I Need to Ramble

March 31, 2021

Written by Anna White

I renamed the header on my blog to Ramblin’ with Anna a few weeks ago as I thought it better suited me since I either ramble with my words or ramble with my life in so many ways. I can never sit still too long and have moved more times than I remember at this point and that’s only since I left home when I was 19. The last time I saw my dad he asked me how many moves I was up to since I had just moved into my house this past December. I told him I couldn’t remember and he said he stopped counting when I reached 40 and that was over 15 years ago.

When I started living in the RV full-time I rambled all over the eastern side of the United States before we settled down to live in a big house again. This past weekend I told my husband I wanted to move back into the RV because I was tired of cleaning the house.

Today I just need to ramble about all that is going on in my life. I feel like the walls are closing in on me and sometimes I just need to vent and this is my space to do that. Besides nobody ever reads this blog anyway, so I can say whatever I want. Maybe one day my children will happen upon it and realize how much they missed out on by not being an active part of my life. I don’t want to chase that rabbit today as that could be a whole post in itself.

Today I want to talk about what my husband and I are currently facing. Back in December he received a cancer diagnosis and begins radiation treatment tomorrow. They are doing an extensive 5 day regime and we have no idea how this is going to affect him. I pray that this was the right choice for him and for us. If that’s not enough, on April 28th he will be having a full knee replacement. Something he has been wanting ever since I have known him as he is in constant pain. I pray that I will not hurt him while re recuperates from all that he is facing and that I will be able to accept all that is coming down the pike so to speak.

I know my life could be worse and I am thankful that God is holding my hand through all of this.

I will try to steal a few minutes each day quilting, sewing or crafting in order to relax and have a moment of time alone.

If someone really is reading this and you’ve had experience with cancer, radiation or knee surgery; feel free to reach out with any advice that you think would help as we both go through these coming days.
