The title of this blog comes from one of my favorite hymns."It is Well With My Soul"
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

A Glimpse of Things to Come?
One of my biggest challenges is my memory, I seem to forget the simplest things.
I am not particularly worried, I noticed a direct correlation to my forgetfulness after starting on Arimidex. Arimidex is a drug they use to prevent your body from making estrogen, I take it to prevent breast cancer reoccurance, apparently estrogen helps you think more clearly, thus the problem!
It is frustrating at times I will admit, but I have found that the best way of approaching this is to relax, go along for the ride and don't take yourself too seriously
Some of the things that happened this week.
I spent a day looking for a book I always keep downstairs, I had forgotten my grand daughter had taken it upstairs to read. I looked for that book for an entire day.
We had been gone a couple of days and had a lot of mail to sort through, when it came time to pay the mortgage I could not remember where I had put it
We had left my SIL's ID card for my children in case anything came up while we were gone...in this case my husband joined in the fun...neither one of us could remember where the card was
Yesterday I decided to include my family and friends in the fun. My husband is getting ready to celebrate a milestone birthday. We decided we would have a party, menu was planned, date and time was picked and emails were sent.
I got my first indication that there might be a problem after a text from a friend about the birthday celebration...when exactly was it going to be?
You guessed it, I included everything in that email but the date and time. Give me much grace Lord!
