As most of you know, I am a "glass half full"
rather than a "glass half empty" person.
When writing the title to this blog post,
it was very tempting to say "very serious illness"
rather than Cancer. Cancer is such an ugly word.
But that is what it is, and I needed to say the
word to acknowledge exactly what God and I along with my
family and friends are fighting together.
Obviously there are some really pitsy things about what I'm going though.
(Is pitsy still a word or did it disappear in the 70's)?
Having to sleep in your recliner because the bed is so uncomfortable
Doctor's appointments (lots of them)
What would I do without my precious husband taxi driver?
Medicines (although I am thankful for them)
Missing getting to do the things you love to do
like wrestle with your grandsons, make trips to
Houston and go to church
But there are some up sides too!
Since I'm a "glass half full kind of girl" you'll hear more of these
as the months progress, but I just thought I'd share one with you this evening.
I got a handmade card the other day from some precious friends.
To those of you who know me from Texas and other places, I
will not include their names to protect the "guilty".
For my Colorado friends, you already know the guilty
This card made me laugh and laugh and laugh
which I hear is the very best kind of medicine.
By the way, I am keeping a notebook of all the precious
cards and notes I am receiving--
and an on-line file of all the e-mails and FB messages.
Although I haven't thanked each of you personally, please
know that they mean the world to me and are
helping me to fight this ugly Cancer!
I love you dear friends.
And to the two of you in the pictures above, I
might just check with Hallmark and
see if I can sell the card for millions.
I might even share the money with you.
