In a season where it’s hard to be thankful, I really try to find something to be thankful for. Because if I’m honest cancer life sucks. It’s a forever waiting, hoping, wishing thing. There is a reason they call cancer a beast. It takes on its own life form. Its the waiting, it’s keeping you from normalcy, it’s how people leave you out of things. Read this blog, it really explains things so much better than I could. I’m forgetful these days, it’s hard to hold a conversation now; but my point is that even with this really crappy thing I find myself more thankful than ever.
I’m thankful for Gods grace and mercy. His provisions for Mom and I. His ever present voice saying Courage, dear heart.
I’m thankful for my mom. She is just the best person I know and my best friend. She’s my constant companion and her faith in me is never wavering.
I’m thankful for my cancer. I don’t know why, but I feel thankful for what it’s teaching me.
I’m thankful for my family. I spent the afternoon with them and despite our issues there is a loyalty and love that is never wavering.
I’m thankful for my dad and his spirit lives on in so many things.
I’m thankful for this life and another day to live. Tomorrow isn’t promised.
This break from life has been nice. Mom and I re-vamped our porch and spent time together that didn’t involve dr appointments. I’m thankful for our little house, it’s not much but it’s home.
Life will get hard again and it’ll be hard to remember all this but in the end it’s important to tuck it away and have it.
Your prayers and support are very appreciated and something I’m very thankful for. Keep them coming.
