I guess every family gets a turn and now it’s time for us. I didn’t get all the details and medical mumbo-jumbo, but I found out today that my only sibling has stage 2 breast cancer. The surgeon says they got the complete mass, but want her back the day after Christmas for some more surgery. Then she’ll start radiation treatments.
I guess every family goes through something like this. I know all the stages of grief. I know all the power of prayer. I know how this is going to change my family. In the spirit of “hands to work; heart to God,” I got busy today.
I picked my daughter up and we picked up her Christmas gift from my mom. A very nice dining room table and chairs. Some assembly was required which was nothing compared to hauling it up the stairs. It is really pretty.
Now it’s off to the boss’ house for a Christmas party. Somehow I’m not really in the mood, but will make an appearance. Tomorrow, will bring my daughter’s college graduation. Life is full of hills and valleys. I just didn’t expect to have so many in one weekend.
