I went to the mail today and there was a gigantic envelope that took up the whole mailbox and I got home to open it. Inside was a huge card signed by all the departments at my old job at St Louis University. My wonderful friend that I used to work with took the time to pass this card around even though I haven't been there in over 2 years and people that I knew well and even people I didn't know so well put the most touching words of encouragement down. A separate card with some monetary contributions were also sent and it lifted my spirits in the most profound way.
This is my first week in awhile I am solo and on top of that....1 day after chemo....I feel better than I've felt since my diagnosis. I feel like it's given me a chance to regroup and get in a groove with my family for a minute and it's been a joyful day. I have felt empowered and strengthened today and this just added to an already a great day.
Always in our dark moments, there is always light. There is always beauty around the corner. There is always a reason to stay encouraged and hopeful. There is always someone who feels an impression and follows through not knowing how it will brighten your day or bless you in your time of need. This brought me so much joy today and I needed it.
My cup runneth over.
Blessings to every one of you.
