I am honoured and grateful for all the friends, family and new friends that have come over to help or sent food and gift cards. A dear friend from Michigan sent an e-gift card for a delicious restaurant…all just to help out. I’m just in shock how wonderful people have been. I’ve made new friends that bring over dinner, get our nails done together and just helps with letting the kids play while my energy level is low. Have you ever been sick or hurt and it surprised you how
kind people are? Not the “I want to help”, but never actually comes over or helps. I’m certainly not looking for handouts or freebies, but I have just really realized how much good is in this world. Our world is so full of negativity that is displayed on social media and the media in general that you can go into the rabbit hole of how “bad” everything is. Of course, there’s awful things that happen, but through this sickness I’ve really seen the good in people and all they have to offer. Even a simple text or call to see if we are ok or need anything. Bringing their kids over to play or help babysit. Just out of nowhere when people hear about this cancer they just want to be around and help. Again, I just feel so grateful for you all!
Watching all my wonderful friends and family help out so much has made me realize what to do and how to help in the future for anyone going through difficult times. I always want to help others, but never knew exactly how, so I would do the best I could. I’m learning from all of you wonderful people how to better myself. Everyone in my world right now are just so generous and helpful and without expecting or asking for anything. Trust me, all of you, I’m paying attention to how amazing you are and you are really teaching me a lot. You are all teaching me how to be a better friend, daughter, mother. You are all teaching me so many life lessons and how to help others. I love helping and always like to see everyone happy and if I can add that to anyone else’s lives…I plan to! So, in the end…my sickness has very hard times, but has taught me so much. Taught me how to experience life with a much happier outlook. Strange how that works. Have any of you had life changing moments that are or were difficult, but it changed you for the better? This certainly has taught me so much. My thoughts are so much more clear and not fogged over With any insecurities, negativity or concern. I feel so loved and protected from everyone and the kindness. Even my doctors have shown me so much more kindness and excitement when things are looking better. Just incredible to see all of this transform in front of my eyes as I go through this journey. I just want you all to know how appreciative I am for you and for all of you taking time to read and listen to my story.
If you have any comments or have experienced this type of transformation within yourself let me know in comments. Maybe your story is the opposite of mine. Maybe you didn’t have help or maybe it didn’t change your outlook. Not everyone has this type of support and that makes me sad. I don’t know how I would get through these tougher times without all of you! So, thank you and I’d love to hear any experiences from any of you reading this.
