So, I had chemo today. So far, so good. I feel even better today than I did last week. Still feel hot inside and cold outside, and my nails feel like they are lifting, but aside from that...no reactions and no side effects......so far. My mood improved a little bit today. Feeling a little happier, but it could be that I was just excited to go "get my drippings" on....who knows. Believe me, that sounds weird that I was "excited" about chemo, but it's like throwing up during a stomach bug. you know it will make you feel better faster, so you just let it go....literrally.
So, I have to say that all the encouragement that I get about my blog is SOOOOO uplifting. I hear all the time... "it's like you are talking directly to me and I can picture your face telling me a story" or "your make me cry and then you make me laugh" or "I was moved by your post for a totally different battle and it was exactly what I needed to hear on that day" and my favorite "you're so strong and this battle has already been won".
I have to say, this is what keeps me fighting! Hearing all the words of encouragement, knowing that I've touched someone...somewhere....somehow..... I feel like "mission accomplished" you know what I mean? It makes me smile. It's uplifting. Especially on days where I just want to cry my eyes out because it's not fair.
So, my challenge to you is this....
I want you to leave a comment on my blog, it only takes a second, and they come directly to my inbox. I want you to tell me, either in one word, or how ever many it takes you.....to describe me. What is it that moves you when you read my story. How do I make you feel? How do you describe me to your friends when you tell them about my story. (You know it's a small world when a friend of a friend hears about your blog and story and you have no clue who the person is that told them about it...they are a complete stranger)
So, what am I? Who am I? What is it that makes me who I am?
Sometimes I'm not sure myself what makes me who I am...... except that I am who God created me to be and I let it be.....
Lift my spirits and keep me fighting....for my kids and my husband. (and if you make me cry, you'll get a virtual thumbs up because I need to cry in a good way for a change)
I love you all!
Ta-ta for now....
