It is 10:00 am and I am just waking up this morning.
I actually slept well last night! I can’t believe it! It’s the first time since Hillary lost in 2016 that I woke up stress free. I feel lighter. I can finally breath a sigh of relief. Soon there will be dignity and reason back in the White House. The crazy bully will hit the road and his bigot minions will go back to hiding under the rocks they crawled out from under.
At this moment in time my cancer antigen numbers are in the normal range and the President elect is not a fascist who wants to deny me healthcare because I have a pre existing condition. Right now, in this moment, the world is a beautiful place.
Oh sure, I’m aware a storm is brewing. Metaphorically, and also a few miles from the state of Florida. But, for this moment in time, I feel safe. I’m going to live! I will have more time on this earth and I don’t have to fear that racism and anti Semitism will escalate because of some wacko leader.
In a few weeks I will begin a new maintenance chemo treatment to keep my cancer at bay, and I’ll probably feel crummy again, but NOT today. In a few weeks I will remember all the people I know who allowed themselves to be influenced by a deranged oppressor and let their basest instincts rise to the forefront. But NOT today.
Today I will just be grateful that Democracy and decency won and that I am alive to see it happen. Hallelujah!
