Life As I Know It

I have put off writing for many reasons the past couple of weeks. John Lennon is credited with saying that life is what happens while you are making plans, and no truer words were ever spoken.

I have been spending a little time with my grandson, and that time has been so precious. The little guy makes me realize that no matter how hard things seem to be at times, life goes on regardless. He grows and changes between each visit. The best part is how his eyes light up when he sees me, and how he chats with such incredible facial expressions. He seems to have a lot to say, and I can not wait until I can actually understand what he is trying to say.

He eases the heartache I have these days.

Last week, my BFF, the Wee Woman, one of my biggest fans here, and the sister of my heart, was diagnosed with breast cancer last week. It's in both and was also found in a biopsied lymph node. I feel as if my heart has been shattered into a million pieces as I think what she faces as she fights for what ever years God grants her. I will never again resent all the tests my doctor orders to make sure I am still cancer free. I was, and am very blessed. I pray this time next year, WW hears the same words I have heard over the past year and 9 months or so: Cancer Free.

The hardest part is being unable to physically be with WW. I know she has a lot of support from her dear husband and kids, but I just want to hug her and feel her strength coursing through her. She is by far the strongest woman I know. I will do the best I can to be strong for her as she was for me.

So, life goes on like a river, twisting and turning toward it's final destination. I had no idea just how sharp some of those turns would be, nor how swift the currents would sweep along. I never expected the rocks and rapids, either.
