Scared of being forgotten

Ever since I found out I won't be able to cross everything off my bucket list in this lifetime, there's one question that keeps coming back to me. Will I be remembered? I know people will move on, and I want people to move on, I don't want people to dwell on what they've lost, but at the same time...

When it pours, it also rains

This morning, a friend shared what happened to her Bible study classmate. This classmate asked God, "Don't you care?!" She stepped out in the rain, looked at the falling drops, and sensed a voice answering, "All of these and more are how much I love you." I sensed a voice after my dad suddenly died. My siblings and relatives were running around setting...

Recording Memories

Technology has come a long way since I was young. I remember when my grandfather got cancer and was nearing the end of his life. He wanted to leave behind some of his historical memories so my grandmother hired a man to film him. Grandpa was uncomfortable talking about personal stuff in front of a stranger...

When life gives you lemons...

The journey through my illness has been everything but depressing. I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer 4 years ago. Stage 3 means that I have a 72% chance of surviving 5 years or more. Well, things have not been looking really good lately, but every day I make a conscious effort not to make myself a number. It’s...

Dogs in Old Photos

When I see old videos or pictures I notice the dogs. Did they get a proper burial when it was their time? Were they good boys and girls? We dog-sat a cousin's German Shepherd mix when the kids were in elementary school. We rented a fenced-in bungalow then and let Lucky run around when he felt like it. One day, our oldest came inside and...

Regrets and Kids

I don’t know if I’ll be around to see my adult sons get married or have kids. They might do neither. I might be the main or second-place reason for that. I get flashbacks to moments when I was typing behind a computer screen for sometimes hours, while they played with toys or watched videos — videos I allowed so...

Honestly...

I smile, I laugh, I throw jokes and play around. I try to spend my time with and for everyone even when my head is filled with questions of whether I will wake up tomorrow. I wonder if I can still do the things I haven't tomorrow. I don't know if I can still move my body when I wake...

Random Acts of Kindness

I've started doing random acts of kindness, everything from hiding bottles of bubbles in the park for kids to find, to dropping off toys at my local animal shelter, to leaving extra quarters and detergent at the laundromat.  I'm not spending much, just a bit here and there.  I pair each one with a cheerful note and I do it...

Ebony, I Hear You

Ebony: You write beautifully. Your description is so precise, we can feel your emotion. Thank you for sharing your feelings so honestly. Sometimes it just feels good to see our thoughts and fears in print, and that might be what you needed when you authored your post. Other times we need someone to share the conversation. I will send you a PM. If...

Spiritual Pain

I'm in spiritual pain.  I feel like I've been let down.  I don't know why this is happening to me and I've lost my sense of purpose in life.  This terrible thing is consuming my life, has attacked my core values, and has made me question my religious beliefs in a way I never thought possible.  At a time when...

My tumor will benefit cancer research

I've finally had the tough conversation with my husband and kids about my decision to donate my tumor tissue to cancer research.  Some extended relatives have reached out about being uncomfortable with me being "put in the ground in bits and pieces instead of whole."  I've explained how I won't be in my body anymore so it isn't a big...

It feels so empty without you.

Now that you are no longer around, time that once moved so fast feels like forever. Maybe that's just me having no one to listen to my random stories, no one to give me advice on the problems I have to face, no one to drink with on a night when no words can describe what I feel. I have a...
