Dreams Do Come True


Earth Wind & Fire Concert

Tonight, I reminisced about all those times I listened to “That’s The Way Of The World” and “Reasons” when I was a teen dreaming of love.  Crazy that I would hear them live at 55 years old with the love of my life.

I’m going to keep dreaming.

Give Me Hope

I know I’ve made blunders trying to comfort others in their time of crises and over the past year, I’ve learned what it feels like to be on the receiving end of what others perceive is comforting me.

What leaves me gripped with sadness and fear, is hearing good hearted people I meet share their stories of cancer which ended in death.  I’ve been with my children, husband, mother, friends and the ones I love, during some of these tales.

I want to find hope everyday, all of us cancer patients do and sometimes we are masking the best we can, our fears for the future.

So for now on when others share their struggles, I’m only going to share the hope I have witnessed to their journey.

And what a cute outfit has done for me!

Beauty Rest

I love sleep.  At least 8 hours a night keeps me functioning, but you could not have paid me before to take a nap.  Give up a few hours of my day?  Shut off my ever thinking brain?  No way.

I’ve managed to keep my eyes open this past year with daily steroid use, but that ended a month ago and this past few weeks has seen me heading for my bed for a few hours a day and I am not liking it.

Come to find out, my white blood cells are low, a common side effect of chemo which causes one to feel very tired.  So, I’m hitting the sack with a new attitude, why not think of it as beauty sleep?

I’m determine that in no time, I should wake up from one of my slumbers a Victoria Secret’s model, but I’d settle for a few less lines.
