I can’t wait!

It isn’t even noon yet and I have had such a wonderful day!!!!

I have:

  • shared a coffee with my husband, made for me especially
  • prepared breakfast and lunch for my youngest boy and received a warm hug of appreciation in return
  • been able to read a variety of news and blog posts, courtesy of my glasses
  • updated my family on the status of their Mum, who, thanks to our wonderful health care system has been able to return home
  • exercised on a treadmill in the house with ample energy and vitality that I would not have enjoyed less than one year ago
  • eaten a muffin, prepared with a variety of healthy ingredients that are readily available in our local grocery store
  • reflected on a lunch I shared yesterday with my long-lost brother and reminisced about my childhood.  So many fond memories
  • been in touch with my sister-in-law who is half way around the world. How wonderful it is to have this means of communication
  • had a follow-up phone call from Royal Victoria Hospital looking to find feedback so they are able to improve their services
  • I have open my  eyes to embrace the splendor of my back yard where the ducks fly by, the pond sparkles in the morning sun, and the trees glisten with frost
  • I have reassurance that my daughter is sleeping safe and sound – in a country where the culture of one of peace
  • I have showered using hot, clean water and dried using fluffy, dry towels.

How very blessed I am.  I can’t wait until this afternoon!


About inmycorner

This blog began as an opportunity to tell my Dad's stories. I sat with him and the computer and together we told stories. It was a wonderful way to get to know Dad. He was 9. He and Mom had a wonderful life together and since she passed away a year and a half before him - Dad was ready to join her. I no longer tell his stories but have found stories of my own. The impetus to resume this blog was the discovery that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. Since blogging had been so therapeutic for my dad and I to get through our grief, I felt maybe this would be a good outlet to process my situation. I also hoped it may serve as an outreach to anyone else who is facing this very ominous journey. So far, so good.
