Today’s Surprise …. “⚜️ From WordPress …. Registered Blogger Six Years Ago ⚜️ …. “!!


~~March 15, 2019~~


I can’t believe it’s already been six years. Time does fly when you are having fun. This blogging adventure started one months after I retired from my full-time job.

After almost 40 years working as a physician, it was time to hang up my white coat and change my tennis shoes to comfy crocs.

That I did … and here I am.

I have “met” incredible bloggers along the way, I have learned about so many different topics and have shared some of my knowledge. Some have come and gone while others have steadfastly remained “friends for life“.

I must say I’m very proud of this badge!

It means a lot to me personally. I still have managed to continue this endeavor which I started by chance and didn’t know where it would lead.

To all who stop, comment, interact with “It Is What It Is”, I deeply thank you. You are teachers, educators and part of my inspiration. I hope to, one day, be as good as you are.

Thank you!

Reflections and Gratitude

From a very dear blogger friend … ‘Right now, I am having to focus so hard on healing and beating this cancer. Unfortunately, our insurance does not cover all of the expenses and I am not able to work full-time, try though I might. My husband has set up a GoFundMe account to help us with expenses.’

Social Justice For All

I just finished my sixth chemo. I am up in the middle of the night writing because I am quite sick from the chemo and need something to distract me, so that I don’t throw up again. Quite sadly, when I looked in the mirror as I was brushing my teeth after throwing up, I saw a reflection I did not recognize. I saw a very old man who was quite gaunt, exceedingly pale — almost a gray pallor to his skin — and very thin black and mostly gray hair. While I was tearing up at what I saw in the mirror, the ghost looked back at me with some compassion and nodded his head politely to let me know that yes, this is what I look like with stage four cancer after six rounds of chemo. But this piece is about a less vain reflection and about such…
