Hi Ben & Loved One ~
This is taken from a resent post I sent to Mozart!!
I will start out by letting you know that the new word for you is
Optimistic (hopeful, positive, confident)
This is truly a scary time… and until you know the answers your mind will really play havoc with your emotions. No matter what!!! And I repeat myself on purpose…No matter what!!!!
Know right now that there is no room for negative thoughts or feelings…
Let this new word enter your mind and body and soul… and you will feel the peace.
You are strong and you are stronger than you even thought you could be… You said it in your posting…
Partial post... from Ben..
Being open with her has brought her in and bound us tighter together. Something I never thought could happen because we are already very close. You were right, it’s a team battle.
The exact same words I have personally shared with others!!!! Never in my wildest dreams did I think Buddy & I could be any closer!!! WRONG…. The strength we’ve always shared still had room for growth… GOOD. POSITIVE. GROWTH.. and that’s what you have!
Thank you for accepting “all of our” special ways of sending you strength!!
Special hugs coming to you both… It truly is a we/us journey…
Smart move with being open and honest with your loved one. Share your fears because she will have fears of her own and once shared they really don’t seem so scary.
You have to remember that the most important thing is that “we love you guys” and when you hurt ~ we hurt. And this is okay. Having the strength of 2 makes this journey much easier… and for those who are only “1”… that’s where we all come in to help. Sharing is Caring and Caring for Each Other is the best gift we can give.
No one can be 100% assured of being here tomorrow.
Live one-day-at-a-time and enjoy each and every moment!!!
So give yourself a present J
What a GIFT!!!! One Day At A Time……
Yesterday was history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That’s why it’s called the Present.
I like hugs for a gift ~ because it is a gift I don’t mind returning…
“God Bless You”
It's a little prayer ~ "God BlessYou"
...but it means so much each day,
It means may angels guard you
and guide you on your way.
As you read the little prayer above… please remember that no matter what the test results show… you will be guided to the right decisions and will be guarded by all of us walking beside you. Keep remembering. We have been where you are… and we are here today to walk the walk and talk the talk.
~ Optimistic ~
(hopeful, positive, confident)
If you hear the words prostate cancer…. the word above is going to be even more important to both of you… Continue to take our hand and we will be there for you.
Continuing to keep you close in thoughts and prayers…
In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy
P.S. I truly hope you continue to post on this personal thread….
