Grandson on his trip to Florida!
A friend said, "I got the best of the worst" - I guess that kind of sums up my cancer story.
I am one of the lucky ones. I got great news. My doctor does not think I will need any additional treatments. I do have to go to an oncologist - as that is the protocol - I will do that July 11 - I suppose she will be the final say in all this. Praise God and thank you all for your prayers to Him on my behalf.
In September my daughter and I will be going to see a genetic counselor.
I will probably be out another five weeks as it is hard to be on the computer a lot of hours! I
I will try to stop by and make comments on your posts as I can, but I wanted to give you this update.
And then life will go on.... or will it?
Yes, it will go on, but it will never be the same.
How can you take a journey like this and not be changed?
I think I am just starting on that part of the journey. . .
So that will be enough of talking about cancer for me - if you are ever interested in any part of this you can write me and I will write you back.
The way I choose to live my life is by deliberately looking for positive things God has given me.
To deliberately look for things to be grateful for from Him.
Trust me - I don't mention it much - but my own life has not been easy.
I have been depressed and still could be.
I must fight the negative and concentrate on the positives just like everyone else.
I am not immune to life troubles either.
That is why I blog like I do.
I want to get closer to God.
I NEED to get closer to God..
I want to share these things with you and I hope you get some good feelings from it too.
I hope that it makes you closer to God as well.
I also think that God gives us laughter and laughter makes our life better!
He wants us to be happy it helps combat the sad times.
He is a growing boy!
"The world is filled with beautiful things.
They point to God, reminding us of His Presence.
He speaks to us continually.
His nature is to communicate, though not always in words.
He flings glorious sunsets across the sky, day after day after day.
He speaks in the faces and voices of loved ones.
He caresses us with a gentle breeze that refreshes and delights us.
He speaks softly in the depths of our spirit,
You can find Him in each moment."
Jesus Calling - by Sarah Young.
Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have. Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Ralph suddenly jumped into the deep end.
He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.
Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out. When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable.
When she went to tell Edna the news she said, 'Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love... I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.
The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead.'
Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry..
How soon can I go home?'
