Today I'll smile. I may not always want to but today I will.

Sunday, September 19, 2010

I wrote the above entry exactly 1 year ago today and had completely forgotten it until Nancy commented on it yesterday. Little did I know that today I would have Lymphoma and a first visit to the oncologist 17 days from now. WOW...thank God we don't know our future, who would want to know all the bumps in the road too far ahead of time? I still plan on smiling and I can honestly say "sometimes I don't feel like it!!" emoticon

Hope everyone has a great day.

    (((Fran)))...praying for you that all is going well with your treatment. You are right...we do not need to know ahead of time of the bumps in the road to come...we'd be an anxious mess! Hope you are having a good weekend! Keep up the good work! Spark on! emoticon

    Koshie, Jan and Nancy, thanks for adding your comments to my page. Just knowing someone out there gets where I am right now is a good feeling. LLS sent me some great books to look over before I go to the Oncologist. I'm preparing my list of questions and gathering up all my scans and such to take with me. Being an old retired secretary I feel like I'm managing a new file drawer. I can do the prep work with a clear head. It's the actual work that gets a little tricky! Have a wonderful life today!!!

    The other day, I was feeling down and surely didn't feel like smiling. I pushed myself and went for a bike ride. I said good morning and smiled at a couple of walkers. I noticed after smiling just a couple of times and getting a couple of smiles back, i really felt better. I hope I don't ever forget that feeling. We'll keep smiling at each other. emoticon Glad we "met" here.

    I'm sure you've heard the platitudes, so I won't offer them. But how scary. How brave you are. Trust God that He has given you a "gift" to strengthen you and make you a better person. And keep working on your health!
