Time to move forward….

It is time for me to pick up the pieces of my life and move forward. The past can’t be changed so I am hopeful for a brighter future.

Many of you know that my niece in WV passed away.  Her funeral was held Sunday at the same time as her ‘daddy’s’ memorial was held.  Two new guardian angels looking down on us below.

I see my oncologist on the 27th and I will find out when the radiation will start and how long that it will take.  I realize now that a finish date by Thanksgiving is not possible but  definitely in time to do some Christmas shopping.

I am finally starting to feel better pain wise.  I have been able to cut back on the pain meds and yesterday was the first full day I didn’t take any.  That is good as I take so many meds anyway.  My swallowing is better although my speech leaves a lot to be desired.

I have set a goal to visit as many of you as I can this week, a few a day to begin with.

Thank you for all of the kind thoughts and prayers for my sister’s family and for me.

  27. Beth- You are in my prayers and I am hoping this is a smoother road to recovery than you had before. I know you can do this because you are a faith-filled person and God has you right in the palm of His hand. You did it before and you can do it again.

    Just think-by Christmas this should all be behind you. Love to you- Diana

    ps. Don't you EVER worry about visiting me---you just take the time you would visit me to rest and get well.

  37. For some reason today the words to this song came to mind when I read your post. - Thy Loving Kindness is better than life, Thy loving kindness is better than life. My lips with praise Thee, Thus will I bless Thee. I will lift up my hands unto Thy name. - May God's loving kindness shine upon you and fill you with peace and hope.
