That's a line from one of my favorite songs by The Ryan Montbleau Band, called Grain Of Sand.
The full line goes, "If I want too much from life, my heart will understand. I'm making the most of this great big grain of sand."
Check out a video of the song here, if you so desire.
Nice, eh? If you know me at all, you know that sums me up pretty well. I especially vibe with the part about the heart...
Ahem. Yeah. About that. Some of you know, and some of you don't, that I've been around the block a few times when it comes to heart issues.
Over the last 12 years I've had 5 procedures called Ablations to attempt to correct an electrical impulse issue that causes my heart to go super wacky. (Official medical terminology right there, folks.) Unfortunately none of them worked for more than a year or two.
I also have a leaky Mitral Valve, and, well, they need to fix that. Sooooo, next Wednesday, May 22, I'll be having surgery to fix that valve as well as make further attempts to correct the rhythm issues. Then I can get back to making the most of this great big grain of sand and dancing my ass off like y'all know I love to do so much! :)
I debated about if I wanted to tell you about this, but we decided I should for several reasons. One, is that I know you're used to me being super accessible via email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, smoke signals, telepathy, etc. and I'll be somewhat less accessible for a little while. My doctor sounds like a total ROCKSTAR so I know it'll all go fine. Please don't take any of this as "oohhhh poor me!" m'kay? That’s not my intention at all. We just figured you needed to know what's going on. Hey, I'm human. I need to get fixed up. What are ya gonna do, eh?
Things at Jessicurl World HQ will be totally fine! :) Our staff is STELLAR and your products don't need ME around to be made and shipped! :) So don't worry about THAT at all. :)
Am I looking forward to this? Well, uh, no, not particularly. But it has to happen so I'm channeling my inner Merida from Brave and rocking a metaphorical bow and arrow to plow through it. :-)
