  2. There is always something in each day to be thankful for.
    A warm blanket is just the thing for this cold weather we are having.
    Blessings.

  6. Balisha - I just ran across your blog last evening and I'm not sure how I hopped over here. I wanted to email you but for some reason it wouldn't let me. I'm SO very sorry to hear about your ovarian cancer and how bad you're feeling. Your situation is very close to my heart because I lost my dear sister-best friend last summer to ovarian cancer. I am a firm believer in the Lord's ability to heal completely or change one's circumstances and I will keep you in my prayers. I also believe that you made the right decision about your treatment, Balisha. My sister's cancer was caught a bit earlier as she was stage 3. She did have extensive surgery and several rounds of chemo, but she made the decision to not continue it the last few months of her life. I do not want to seem like I'm being morbid or anything, and certainly not EVER giving up hope. But I want to tell you that you HAVE been given a gift. The Gift of Time. Yes, it's hard for your family to know that you're suffering, but it's also a blessing in disguise. My sister was ill for 18 months. I quit my job to help care for her. Lisa was able to spend time with her two grown kids, time with our parents, time with her husband and time with me, and that is something that I will cherish forever. There was nothing left unsaid, nothing not talked about, nothing undecided, no love not expressed many times over. I HATE cancer and I HATE that she had to go through that, but if any of us are called home by the Lord suddenly, we don't get to experience that wonderful gift!

    I believe from reading your blog for quite awhile last night that you love the Lord and have your faith and trust in Him to help you face the future with hope and strength. I simply don't know what people do without the Lord God in their lives. Grab onto this gift, Balisha, and spend all the time with your family that you can and love them to pieces! I have a feeling that you're already doing this! I'm praying for your family as well. Sending you a big hug from the bottom of my heart!

  8. Dearest Balisha, my heart just broke...again ...this morning when I dropped in for a visit and found out what you are going through! I just wanted to pound my head against a wall..it's killing me! It does not matter one bit that we have never met, I've loved you dearly. So many kindesses you've done for so many. The pie recipe you sent to me when we first met, the pain we shared at losing our children within a couple of month of one another. So much history..our shared love of birds, gardening, home, children...how I wish I could do something! I should have been here on your doorstep more often. My heart and my prayer's are with you. How I wish we could have met in person, but I feel blessed to have met you through our blogs. Please feel my love and my hug! Mona

  9. Dearest Balisha, I had to go back and catch up on your post. I am in tears! I am so sadden for you but happy for you at the same time. Does that make any sense?? I so wish there was something I could do, say, send, SCREAM out anything! I hate cancer! My sister is going through radiation as we speak. She is Ohio, me in Texas! She has completed chemo and now radiation. My heart hurts most days, but I try to not show it. I thank God daily for all his blessings. I will pray for you. I will pray for Joe. I will pray for your family. Please pray for me. I love you.
