Today is my Mom’s birthday. She is truly a remarkable woman.
To say that I would not be here if it were not for her is true in many more ways than the fact that she brought me into this world. The past two years have been a rough go for our family. Cancer happened to all of us, not just me. It hit my parents particularly hard.
My Mom is the most caring and selfless person I know. She has been here for me every day in so many ways. I have leaned on both of my parents so much in the past two years. I do not know how I would have come through this without them. I still do not have the results of the scans from last week. I hate to put my family through the waiting. And my friends too. I am guessing I will get the results soon. Perhaps Monday. I am praying for good results.
Today we will all get together for dinner for my Mom’s birthday. We are not having a party, she wants to celebrate later (she said she needs a little more time to warm up to the idea of turning 75). I think she wants to wait on a party until she knows that I am healthy and cancer free.
I have every intention of having a party for her. But, for now, it will be dinner.
Please feel free to post a birthday message to my Mom here . . . I will make sure she sees it!
Thank you for your continued prayers.
Love and peace,
