I've heard of people telling that cancer was a blessing in their lives..... After my first bout I really couldn't think of how it blessed me. I was just so thankful that I got through it and I was ready to get on with my life!
And then what? Two years later it's back. *sigh* *tears* *unbelief* Well, here I go again.
I can see blessings now.....
My son calls me every week and visits too. Previously we barely said 2 words to each other. He and Kevin are talking, whereas before it was a cold war.
My daughter texts me nearly every day. They are visiting more often too. My oldest children have busy, teen age children, so it is not easy. I am so proud of the parents they have become and of their spouses too.
This is my 12 year old grandson, my son's boy. Tim took him turkey hunting this past weekend and Tyler got a turkey. This kid doesn't smile easy.....but he must be pretty happy because I see a smile. Next weekend Tim said he'll take Tailyn (15 yr old granddaughter) hunting. The kids are active in school events and outdoor sports, I think that's pretty cool.
Kevin and I talk more too. He shows his appreciation as we muddle through each day. Yes, we use humor a lot.....that's my M.O. I think it was yesterday that he said I looked like Albert Einstein (with less hair). It is what it is.
The good news is that it will warm up to normal temps by the weekend.....you don't know how happy that make me! I am expecting visitors this weekend.
