Today is Tuesday and I now only have 3 more radiation treatments to go. It is funny how time seems to have slowed way down. I thought last week was a long week ,but this weekend, Monday and today have gone on forever. I had another dear friend pick me up and go with me. It isn't a real exciting place to go, but it feels a bit better when you go with a friend.
I can sure tell a difference in me from the first few weeks that I started. It didn't really feel like anything was really happening and so I was talkative and had lots of questions and took the opportunity to meet everyone there. I now catch myself going in,getting dressed and then sitting down waiting for my name to be called. I don't even look around the room as much as I should. I love to make new friends, anywhere and everywhere, but I just feel so sore and tired that I am having a hard time pretending that I am doing well. I did take a moment to see how one of the ladies there is doing. I gave her a book and a card this week because she is just starting radiation and has already gotten an infection. She has a great spirit about her and I have been worried about her. Today when she came in she handed me a box and it had a beautiful book mark in it. What a sweet thing that was for her to do and I will always think of her and pray for her when I use it.
So as the days get longer I need to remember that THIS TO SHALL PASS! I won't be hurting like this forever. My skin and hopefully my body will heal soon. Hopefully I have learned the things that I was suppose to learn on this part of my journey, I sure hope so. Thank you for hanging in there with me and supporting me and my family. This has been a tough road and I know the reason that I have made it this far is because of friends and family like you. I need to head to bed and so I will leave you with a couple of great quotes on time and one of my favorite scriptures on time. It helps me gain perspective! Night!
"Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived." __ Captain Jean-Luc Picard
For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
