    Default Just Breathe- By Ginger

    I wrote this in 2005. After a long battle with Endrometrosis I had to have a total Hysterectomy. All removed. my uterus, my ovaries, tubes, cervix, and lots of surrounding tissue. As well, as bladder and bowel repair. It was a very hard time in my life!!
    The words Just Breathe got me through it. If I was unable to do anything else... All I needed to do was

    Just Breathe

    Curled up in a ball,
    A fire within my womb.

    I know there's something wrong,
    Surrounded by feelings of doom.

    Doctors, nurses, surgery,
    Shots and pills and prayer.

    I am so sorry to tell you, IT is everywhere.

    Sitting in my hospital gown, all it quite and still-
    The Holy Spirit surrounds me-

    I completely trust His will.

    Like so many times before, He whispers in my ear-
    The two simple words that I need to hear.

    The nurses are talking,

    She's only 26. What a shame.
    Someone calls my name.

    It is time-
    I drift to sleep-
    Not sure if I will awake.

    That would be OK-
    Ive had all that I can take.

    Cold, bright, shaking, fear,
    Startled I open my eyes.

    A tear rolls down my cheek-
    A part of me dies.

    I close my eyes and meditate on the words he has given to me.

    JUST BREATHE

    Oh, wow. I'm sitting here bawling at work. I'm so sorry that happened, but so glad you trusted God thru it all. So glad He was there for you and you knew it. Thanks for sharing. Wow. wow.

    Oh My! It brought a tear to my eye, and a lump in my throat! I wish people would quit making fun of me for having so many kids.... I've had 9 misscarriages, and I know it's God's will, but I am always thankful that I am able to have children. Whenever I am feeling down, I shall come back and read your poem. It means so much to me, thank you for sharing your heart!!!

    Amazing poem, Ginger. You put into words what I felt when I was going through my female problems. I can't imagine being 26 and having to go through it I was 36 with mine. (((hugs)))

    wow... so very sad sweetie. I'm struggling with a pelvic prolapse right now that might end in surgery... who knows what they'd take or leave.

    you have given beautiful words to hold on to, thank you!

    OMGosh Ginger. So sorry to hear what you went through. Thanks for sharing that gorgeous poem which brought tears to my eyes. My DIL recently gave birth to their first child a precious little girl. And towards the end of her labor, she really started to lose it. I know she was scared so I stepped up and took over for my son and told her to look at me in a very loving tone and said, "just breathe". Pick something to focus on. She looked straight into my eyes and I said, let's breathe together. Gosh those lamaze days came in handy once again. What a moment to share and I'm such a baby as I well up again just thinking about it. God bless you Ginger!
