In God’s Hands

I don’t know that my mind has really grasped what is happening in our lives… cfr0043

Married for 46 years…

we have had our share of ups/downs…

Jobs… health issues… son with bi-polar… family situations…

but…

we are good! k24561264

I think my Bobby and I have learned to take things pretty much in stride…

Yes… we have feelings that surface… k0969530

But, knowing we both have our Faith… and facing reality head on

makes our days better…

We don’t like what is happening…

we would like it to be different…

but, as I have always said, “We are not immune to life’s circumstances… some good…. some bad!”

We have always known that we have a special love…

A bond that holds us together with a touch…

a kiss on the cheek… k3759869

a hug as we pass…

a kind word

an “I love you”… at unexpected times… u17245841

I hate the word…”cancer”…

Never wanted it to be in my little family…

but, it has reared it’s head recently …

Our follow-up visit to primary care doctor… was good…

A thorough check-up… vitals taken… and a look of incision… and listening to his heart…

Blood work drawn for labs… to check his levels…

and the doctor read and read over the reports concerning him on the computer…

I listened as I heard “STAGE 3″…

That didn’t sound too good…

Explained as well as she could what that meant…

Chemo needed… to address cancer slightly in lymph nodesnear where tumor was removed…

I read and reread what that meant…

Not good… not bad…

Criteria ranging from 5-10 years… in life expectancy…

That shakes me to my core…

because we keep hearing “5”…

What to do…

Getting him healthy as he can get right now…

where the Chemo will not drain him…

but, afterwards… “GOD WILLING”…

we will live our remaining years as best we can…

Will we make changes? … k22125429

Some maybe… but, probably just live our lives as before… with a little more presence of making each day count for something!…

I leave my hopes…

my thoughts… k2742205

my dreams…

in the Hands of God! k12818777
