Someone I love very much is starting chemotherapy and radiation treatment today. I tried avoiding thinking about this for as long as I could.... the thought of what is essentially poison going into their veins....terrified me. But reality could wait no longer, so I called them and wished them well. Is it normal that the sick person seems more positive and empowered than those around them? I was amazed by their attitude and courage.....when I feel like falling apart and crying or having a massive panic attack.
Anyway, they told me this little saying and it encouraged me and made me feel ridiculously proud to know someone so brave.
But if you all could say a prayer for this person....and anyone going through a hard time. They need all the strength they can get.
