My Husband is awesome!

I have been going through a difficult time recently and my husband has been there every step of the way.  He has been amazing no questions asked.   I have learned to appreciate our relationship even more than before.   Image

For My Husband
You are my first thought in the morning
My last thought at night
For you, I have always been longing
You bring me so much delight
You have changed my life so much
You have a special kiss
And a special touch
Forever we will be like this
We met over 4 years ago
A brilliant 4 years it has been
Oh…where does the time go
There was such a big space in between
But we came through it
Although it always seemed mean
It was well worth it
Being able to get a cuddle from you
Makes me so happy and feel wanted
Everything you do
Some I may take for granted
But nothing can be stronger than my love for you
What we have is bliss
Even though we have ups and downs
Nothing can come between this
We have our smiles and our frowns
But when we kiss and cuddle
All the frowns seem to drown

Walk a mile in my shoes

Like the saying goes
~Don’t judge someone unless you have walked a mile in their shoes.~

I’m feeling that others are often too quick to give their advice or insight without opting to listen to others. Unless you have walked in their footsteps you have no idea what they are going through or have been through. We should remember to be patient, be a listening ear and be there for comfort. It is so much easier said than done to tell a depressive cancer patient to stay strong and upbeat when all they want to do is breakdown and cry. They don’t want to hear those words. They are fighting this battle one minute, one day at a time. They want someone who is willing to give them the time to listen.

Good and Bad days

Why are some people closer to us than others? Some act even more distant when you are going through something as tough as cancer and others hold your hand through the entire process. Whether it be family, friends, co-workers, strangers, significant others…..why can I cry my eyes out only in front of specific people? Do they understand me, connect with me in a way no one else can? Share the same personality type? I don’t know but I do know that I found it difficult to shed my tears until now. Whether I was holding on strong and have finally let go to let others help me out. Just because I am shedding tears does not make me weak or powerless. A friend once told me you can scream and cry all you want but at the end of the day you will fight this cancer. She is right, through my ups and downs I will beat this in the end! So I will continue to cry on my bad days and know that this will soon be behind me.
