May 11, 2011

I have been thinking about how all my friends and family have been so supportive through all this battle.  I guess there will never be a way to repay any of you but I sure wish there were. It has been an eye( and heart), opener for me. 
I guess until you are in this situation you never stop to think about needing help from friends.  We all assume that we can pretty much handle all that life throws at us.  Then it throws a curve like you have never seen or expected.  It is then you realize that, as John Prine said, " everybody needs sombody that they can talk to"and as  Bob Dylan says " you got to serve sombody; It might be the Devil or it might be the Lord, but you got to serve sombody. Well, I found out both statements are true.
I am trying to say,badly, that we cannot complete this life alone, without help.  We need our friends, family and, most of all, God.  I am talking about the God of Abraham.  I had no idea how much I needed God until this cancer battle.  He does what he says he will do and He made me able to stand all the poison they put into me without much problem.  I was blessed to never get sick through all of this.  I had my battles but the Hawk was always there.  It may have been through a friend stopping by at the right moment, a check arriving in the mail on the right day, a card in the mail from someone giving me encourgement or someone praying for me but when I was down.  He was always there.  I do not ever want to forget that.  All you friends out there: don't ever let me forget it.  If I ever get to acting like I was the one who brought myself through this, smack me up side the head and remind me what I have said here today.

I am having good days now.  I don't know if the battle is over.  I won't know that until the 10th of June when they do my other scan but I do know that, so far, I have been doing good through all of this because of all of you folks out there who have prayed and encourged me through it all. I really thank all of you friends, family and church, for your support.  God bless you and your house
