There was a lady next to me today that was there for her first treatment. She was older...but not old!!! She sounded scared...her son was there with her. We got to talking later in the day....once her son was gone and Doug had left. I tried to assure her she was going to be o.k. That chemo wasn't impossible and with faith she would make it through. She said she didn't have too much faith in herself but I told her I did and that I would pray for her. Please pray for her too. She was so very sweet...I pray for her inner strength, her faith and her determination...all with God's help.....to make it through this. She is in treatment every other Tuesday...just like me. I didn't ask any personal questions so I don't know what kind of cancer she has. Depending on how my Monday goes on the 19th, I might go back up to see her. Maybe I'll crochet her something.
Dinner is from my mother-in-law tonight, my dear girlfriend Yvette Thursday, another dear friend and her sister - Pam and Jennifer Saturday. I AM BLESSED......beyond measure. I hope and pray and work each day to be so deserving of ALL of my blessings. I fail time and time again, but I never stop trying. In church on Sunday, Curtis told us all how it doesn't matter how you start the race, it matters that you do and how you finish!!!! SO KEEP WORKING and KEEP TRYING!!!!
