Thank you Carla for welcoming me to your very special group....I have slowly
come to "know" you all by listening in silently...sometimes I felt like
I was eavesdropping. These past 4 years have been quite a journey
- 2 to discover what was wrong (despite all the doctors saying there was
nothing wrong) and 2 since the "terminal" diagnosis. I am doing great,
and thank God every day for the quality of life that I continue to enjoy.
I prayed at the onset that God grant me life to see my youngest (now a
freshman in high school, then a 6th grader) graduate from High School.
2 years have passed almost, and I'll probably be greedy and ask Him to
please let me see my sons graduate from College, and then of course, I'd
love to bounce a grandchild on my knee...!!!) You get the picture.
I keep thanking Him for today, and for all the friends, and prayers and
support I've received along the way....they all keep me going. Thanks
for being a new friend. love. C.
aboard Cori... Don't get me wrong, I am not and never would welcome
anyone to the cancering journey, but I do welcome you and our other molers
to this wonderful support network... I,
like you came on board and just watched and listened for awhile...
well, actually I was one of those who signed up and didn't know what a
bulletin board was and kept sending messages to people saying that I got
their email by mistake!! LOL!! That
was a year ago and have I come a long way, much due to this forum.
I have not had the support in my "real life" and this forum has become
my family.. It is here that I learned to give words to my feelings
of cancer and being on the cancering journey.. It is here that I
post my fears and here that I share my tears.. With that much trust,
it is also here that I have learned to laugh and to allow others to help
me when I was feeling down... I am very
glad that your wellness program and your faith have brought you to a new
level of understanding about life; what to let go of, what to change and
what to believe in..... I am looking forward
to getting to know you better.. God Bless you, Carla
