And Now

My beautiful mother has pancreatic cancer. So I'm still here. But I don't know how often I will post. I feel so defeated by life right now. Scared and sad. Thank you dear readers for those that still read me. I don't know what else to say. Words fail me.

my dear one,
I fully know what it means to hear those words, "you have cancer". I know the sadness, the ache you have for you beautiful mother. Just know I am here for you, I will lift you all up in prayers.
Cancer just plain sucks. Let me leave you with this poem that I have had on my fridge since I was first diagnosed...

What Cancer Can Not Do

Cancer is so limited...
...It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the Spirit.

in Him,

Sweet Girl ~

I'm so, so sorry. I know that there are no words that will take the hurt away but please know that there are those out here that are thinking about you and wishing we could. I have a very similar story - an estranged father that I lost shortly after losing my mother. I know you'll want to concentrate on helping your mother with her fight ~ and don't waste a minute of your lives together - whether you have months or years left. If nothing else, these crises help us to remember that - live every minute as if they were your last.

I am so sorry to hear this. We lost my father-in-law to pancreatic cancer eight years ago, it is a scary disease. They are constantly making improvements, however, in treating it. I pray that they caught it early with your mother and that she is able to make a complete recovery. Don't worry about posting, you need to take care of you and yours.
