still believing in the power of prayer...more headed to the both of you.
Well said! 💜💜💜💜I’m not a gifted writer and often have trouble writing in such a way as to say what I mean clearly, but I shall try.
Growing up in an abusive home, having had a couple near death experiences and then having my own battle with cancer I’ve come to realize that right now, this very moment is a gift. We have no idea what is going to happen in 5 minutes let alone tomorrow or next week. Yes, there are events that will help shed light on what is to come at some point down the road and at a future point we will need to deal with whatever that event is.
That is why I tell and show my wife, children and family that I love and cherish them because in 5 minutes I may not have the chance.
Whiskey and Nate, I know it’s virtually impossible to not think about the future but please try to not let it cloud over your here and now, please try to cherish it.
We will all keep praying for you and your family and try to take comfort in knowing that we are all thinking and praying and will be here for all of you.
Life is our mortal journey, try to take is slow and cherish to good parts because in 5 minutes……….
I’m not entirely certain I expressed myself clearly but hopefully everyone will be able to understand what I was trying to say.
Hopefully this doesn’t come across as a thread high jack, I’m just trying to share a hard lesson learned and give some comfort.
I think I’ll go say a prayer now…….,
The chemo has hit her pretty hard this time, but we're getting through it. She's sleeping right now, but she usually gives me a big smile when I give her a hug and tell her the monkey told me to do it. I'll make sure she gets one when she wakes up.hope today is a good day for her...give her a hug from everyone at Vol...
Thank you. I appreciate all of the love and prayers. I'll try not to hold it against the priest for riding a Harley bobber. 😉Whiskey, etal... who read this.. as Jerry K so eloquently stated my words will never express my thoughts and the heart ache with what you and others have to deal with. I quietly pray that all will work out the way it needs to and some how, we will get by and understand it with time.
My wife and I are going on a pilgrimage in the next couple of days and will will take your names and causes to every cathedral and holy place we go to. Each day, we will be celebrating Mass at a different place and the priest (who is a biker, but rides a Harley bobber) asks for names and causes. I will definitely make sure your wife, you and your whole family is on that list.
Please know, I do not post often because I am always a loss for words. But I, my wife, father and mother do pray everyday for you and a lot of others on this site that have been going through tough times right now. Thank you for keeping us updated when you can. Your thoughts and feelings has made a great impression on me and my relationship with my wife. There were times, that I probably have taken advantage of her good nature and easy going attitude. But because of your experience, you have helped me to be a better husband and more conscience of her and grateful for being with her each and everyday.
Some day, I hope to be able to thank you in person.
God's Blessings to you, your wife and family
Thank you. Also, click/press and hold the like button. 😉Thank you the up date Whiskey. You and your family are some of the people who have been in my thoughts today as I’ve been working on my house.
Big Bert, if I knew how to hit the love button instead of like I would have.
