The ability to laugh when sometimes the alternative might be to cry. When there are so many challenges in my life that I have previously written about and many of you know.
Last night I downloaded something and ended up with malware in my computer. I didn’t realize what it was at first, I just thought it was some annoying pop-ups. But they increased in number, and there was no way that I could seemingly get rid of them. My home page did not display properly and was taken over by a malware with the name of Conduit. So my trek into ‘googling’ to try and find out what to do. Everything that was suggested did not get rid of the problem.
I did a total scan of my computer, I searched everywhere that was mentioned and got a little panicky wondering how bad it was going to get.
Anyway after making a desperate call to my computer friend (who wasn’t home) I looked one more place and it seemed to ‘almost’ work. There is some that I couldn’t delete or uninstall but was able to disable it.
But you know, it was just another cog in a somewhat trying time, and so instead of crying or getting uptight, I laughed. I hardly got any sleep, and you know that is not unusual right now for me, but last night I got even less than the perhaps 3 hours I get at night. I may nod off before finishing this post, because my eyes are almost shut.
Oh, and with this blessing, I should mention that I do have a specialist appointment tomorrow. It’s with a doctor back where we used to live and so must travel a couple of hours, but that’s okay. Now I just have to hope that his surgery dates are not like the other two I’ve tried which was 10 months to a year!
So I have hope that perhaps it won’t ‘maybe’ be too much longer before I can actually lie down again at night and actually get a good night’s sleep!
The ability to ‘laugh’… is truly a blessing. It helps to bring things into perspective! Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians……
Oh, and I had to put a picture of a beautiful fall day, taken actually two years ago, when the fields were alive with color.
