I'm sitting in the hospital waiting room while my mom is undergoing surgery. In my heart, I know that she will be okay and I never doubted that for a minute but I feel badly that she has to go through all of this. Another part of me is grateful that I am able to be here for her. When I was in my larger non-walking days, I could not have been there for anyone even if I wanted to. It's a very good feeling to go from the person who counted on everyone to the person who can be counted on.

On another note, I went to see the Michael Jackson movie and I was totally blown away by his talent . As a person who has always suffered from depression and an eating disorder, I wanted to see if watching Michael in his final days would give any clues to his anorexia and depression. Many times when I watched him being interviewed, he had the saddest
eyes I had ever seen, In this movie there was not single sign that his life was almost over. There was none of the sadness from previous interviews. He cleverly hid his thin body
with layers of clothing. Then, it dawned on me that when he was on stage there was no sign of sadness because he was in the one place that made him happy------the stage.
Although the movie was uplifting, you could not help but leave the theatre with a sense of great loss. The world will certainly miss out on at least 20 years more of the Michael
Jackson magic.

Have a great week and make some of your own magic.

I too believe our mom will be well but the human body does age and whether we like it or not it does begin to break down. We do our best to prolong the inevitable.
As for Michael Jackson the world might missed another hit or concert and I do not wish anyone dead but lets face it the Children will be safer.
