Wake up

Wake up

I’ve been quiet as of late. Lots has changed these days and lots has remained the same really.
I’ve never brought spiritual into my blogs before and even now I am hesitant because I don’t want this to become a sappy religious blog.

Life and death is real! Life is precious ! We take it for granted as people, Christians and non Christians, godly and secular….we all think we will live forever.

When you one day you wake up and realize that you’ve been seeing life thru foggy glasses. its really shocking and scarey! Andy is sick but so am I really. My soul has been sick for a long time but I didn’t know it. It’s easy to be stubborn for a long time and when finally you cave in from the pain it’s a whole new world, a beautiful and amazing world.

I am sitting in my usual spot, next to a hospital bed, and yet it feels different because I’m not alone. Off in the distance I see a storm rolling in over the horizon. It’s beautiful to see the power and intensity of nature. Each day goes by and I see life in the leaves, the wind, the air I breathe, the rain that falls on my face, and the tears that fall from my eyes. So much life all around and so much peace just on the edge of insanity. Anyone can have peace in a storm if they open their heart to it.

Today is another day and tomorrow will come whether we want it to or not. But don’t waste another minute sad or anxious. I have my anxiety for sure but during my brief moments of peace I treasure the chance to hold on tight and to hope for my light.

I found your blog yesterday. My dearest man, age 33, was diagnosed in May 2013. At first it was IIb. For now it’s is IV. Even after total gastrectomy and five cycles of chemo. Just wanted to let you know that I know the feeling. Seeing the pain… Inability to help… Not being able to tell that everything will be ok… I want to wake up from this horrible dream. Thank you for putting all this in so nice words. I do not have the ability like this..
