A Friend

I just received the news recently that a dear friend of mine from church has just been diagnosed with breast cancer.  She is in the shocked mode of course.  We talked and she is waiting to hear what the plan of attack is.

I HATE CANCER!

I know that asking why makes no sense, because we may never know that answer.  But sometimes I want to scream, it is enough.

Don't get me wrong.  I will do whatever I have to do to stay here and be well for my family.  But sometimes I get tired.  Tired of the chemo, the meds, the needles, the tests, the appointments, the not feeling well...just tired.  And then you hear another person is starting her journey through the same thing.

It is just plain hard.

Oh, Ceekay! I'm so sorry. I wish there was something I could do, but I will send you a hug and a prayer and hope that you can feel it. Scream if you feel like it. We don't mind. I hate cancer with red hot hatred, and I want it to go straight into the pits of hell from whence it came.

XO,

Sheila

My Friend.
Well - you know how I feel about it.
And it's OK to be tired every once in a while. When you need a boost, that's when you rely on family and friends to help you through it.
But you are feeling good and I am so proud of you - you are handling it all magnificently.
I am so sorry about your friend from Church. She's lucky to have you to talk to about it - isn't she?
Have a great weekend!
Big hug with a little sway! Karen
