more thoughts -

I actually rarely consider what I am dealing with. I am just moving through each day and what presents. I do paddle my feet like the duck, and I am aware of the changes in tides, and weather, and I am pretty much at peace.

Since though it seems I do have what I prefer not to think about, I am again perusing the book by Lance Armstrong, and considering his words. To him, cancer is "not a form of death," but is " a part of life."

He has also made an acronym from the word. I like it.

Courage
Attitude
Never give up
Curability
Enlightenment
Remembrance of my fellow patients.


I might say Remembrance of all involved since this is involving so much more than myself.
My oncologist went on vacation after she recommended the chemo to me, and then, worried the whole week that I would not choose to do it. It is like that. There is such a gathering, a community of remembrance. There are all of you. Thank you!! You snuggle in my heart!!

It is winter. My heart is a snuggly place!!
