“You don’t need somebody to interpret for you what a beautiful sunrise it is. ”
-Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
Just a few glimpses of grace from my week. I love how you all express to me that you thought of me when you saw a sunrise, or a sunset these days. Have I told you lately that you all are the coolest blog peeps ever?
I wish someone could capture the pure giddiness that comes over my face when surprises like this tree top pot show up rather unannounced! It had a card with a gift inside too and it was signed "Secret Santa." Love, love, love. Thank you!
I finally got outside this morning to get a quick photo of it- and the sun was dancing over my shoulder and I was jittery in my cold stocking feet trying so hard to capture both. My photos are less than stellar, but the joy they brought me is what counts.
This little stinker announced to us at 9:30 last night, after hockey practice, that he needed black pants and a white shirt and orange tie today for school. He ended up in a too small shirt, with an overgrown tie, size 9 shoes and blue pants. But the smile on his face? Says everything was just right.
He is playing in 3 hockey games this weekend, with the first one later tonight. Go Peewees!
This is a short clip of the Patriotic Program performed by the 5th grade today. Colton is standing in the last row on the left. I loved the entire program! It was filled with all kinds of songs we sang back in elementary school- including this one!
If I'm being honest, its been a rough transition back to Tykerb. Lots of nausea, my face is breaking out again, and I am feeling like I need to be steps from the bathroom most times.
I've also had a new troubling (to me) symptom show up. Both Dr. Foster and Dr. Panwalkar were informed. Neither one feels its necessary to do anything about just yet, or that its even a symptom of cancer.
Dr. Panwalkar's parting words to me were "You don't need to worry about it. I'll make note of it." He smiled the entire time he said that. So I left the worry with him. Perhaps I'll never have to make mention of it again.
So, I've tried to not let any side effects, symptoms, etc, slow me down too much. Distraction has been my constant companion and I've found I've been saved by grace in more moments this week than I can possibly say.
Plus, some new endeavors are rumbling about in the distance. I hope to able to share soon!
