And in with 2017!
Report, Nathan is over his chemo induced illness and I’m doing amazingly well after that first chemo. A bit tired and basically fine.
Last night I was at a party with some church friends and someone got talking about how the teens wanted to go to 2 or even more parties. One of the adults said “why would I want to do that – you are my people”. There was a moment of sacred silence, broken as if with the word Amen with “yes, you are” by some of us.
You are my people and i hope I am yours. I ran into this great quote on friendship by Anaïs Nin. “Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” You have opened worlds to me.
Perhaps because I’m an only child friendship and community have a hold on me unlike I see in most people I know. But we all need it, and I believe are drawn to as only people looking for new worlds in ourselves and the larger world can be.
Prayer – Friendship, community and family not only give me a reason to do all I can to get well but miraculously give me the support to get well at the same time. Thank you all – blessed be.
