I know I have been going through a tough time lately with all the doctors’ appointments and grim diagnosis, but life is not without joy and grace by any means. In fact, the past couple of weeks made me realize how much I am loved and supported by the world around me.
It’s not just the prayers and words of encouragement I have gotten via emails and comments you see here, but also people show up to help me when help is needed.
Today for example, Brett (my ex-husband) dropped me off at the hospital for my pet scan at 6:30am, he went over to my apartment to get things ready to move my furniture back to the house. At 9am, my tai chi friend, Joan, picked me up after my pet scan while Brett met up with my tai chi friends, Sam and her husband, Ron (I have only met a few times), Jim and his friend Chad (whom I didn’t even know) to help me with the move. Joan showed up yesterday to pack up my kitchen for me. Sam and Ron stayed at my apartment after the move to clean things up. Tomorrow, as I understand, there is another crew of cleaners going to my apartment to finish up the cleaning!
In the most desperate time of my life, people are so generous with their love and support. I can’t thank them enough for all they have done for me! You give me the strength to face life’s difficulties when I have little myself.
