Something I found

I was cleaning out my den and came across a card my fantastic sister sent to me during my treatments.

I thought it quite appropriate for many of us.

Here it is:

"I'll bet you've had about enough
of people telling you how strong you are
and how great you're doing
during this awful, difficult
period in your life.

Maybe you'd rather hear someone say
how much this sucks, how outrageous
and unfair it is.

Maybe you'd rather hear someone tell you
that you don't have to be strong
all the time.

Or that it's definately okay
to curse fate and throw a tantrum or two.

So here I am to tell you
all that stuff and more,
to let you know where I stand,
which is right in your corner.

There's no right way or wrong way
at a time like this.

However you work through this thing is immaterial to me.

All I care about is that
you ask for what you need,
lean on those who love you,
and try to trust me when I say
that you'll come out the other side"

Wow! I have chills all over...very moving. Jeannie Hund gets it - the heart and mind of a cancer patient...or anyone else going through a tough time. How nice it must have been to receive that card from your sister. I think I'll send these sentiments to my SIL who recently lost her parents to cancer (both within two weeks).

Thanks for sharing, Barb. Hope you are doing well in your recovery.

Blessings to you...
