Just taking a moment to send you wishes of well being and happiness in your life.
I hope your daily blessings continue to spring forth as the days go by.
We know that Mother's Day is rapidly approaching so in honor of this day, I'd like to wish you all a very Happy Mother's Day!
We all have the honor of knowing a woman in our lives that has been there for us and done amazing things with so little. She has been there to support, chastise us and remind us of what is important. We know the moment something is just not right. We hurt when we see the pain in her eyes although she tries to hide it and be strong for us.
Well, today the news has not turned out as we wanted and she has been informed that a procedure is needed. Being distraught, torn, angry and feeling very helpless are the emotions within each of us. We almost feel as though our pain is more intense than hers. We ache to see her suffering and know there is little we can do to ease that pain and suffering.
When you are feeling as though there is nothing you can do, you're wrong. Be there for her as much as she'll let you even if it's to just sit and be still. Take in all your lifelong shared moments of laughter, tears, struggles and accomplishments. You're not looking at the end of her life, you're looking at a new journey. We have the power to make this journey one of joy as you relive the days you've shared. Enjoy those moments and the tears that come with them. Surround her with love and let her know she is not taking this journey without you.
Honor her wishes, wants and needs and respect the decisions that are being made. No one should have to make the decsion between life and a breast or life and death. We all know that tomorrow isn't promised. But we can promise to honor each day that we do have.
We are looking to each of you to make this journey one where you know that you have made a difference.
Honor that woman in your life each day as though it is her last. Honor her with tributes of appreciation, respect and loads of love. Honor her with a donation in her name towards this journey. In whatever way that is best for you, Honor Her.
Every woman deserves a lifetime!
I am My Sister's Keeper.
