Will it never end?

The answer is, no, it won't. My friend told me today she's been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. She seems very upbeat about it, and spent most of the conversation telling me the parts she's looking forward to. She's all kinds of excited that she gets "new boobies". Not so excited about the chemo/hair loss part, but she did tell me she got a bunch of cool scarves for her head, like tie dye and peace symbols that she knows will annoy our boss :D Today she is my hero. I don't think I could be as positive as she is being, were I in her place. And, you know, cause it's all about me... I've already lost one dear friend to breast cancer, and this has been a bitch of a year already, so Lynda, if you could just not die, that would really help me out.

  2. A guy in my ward on Sunday used a phrase that I love.. he talked about how amazed he is how come people 'remake themselves after they are dismantled' by some serious health issue or tragic accident. I am amazed by that too, that people, like Lynda and my dear old Bishop Don....seem to be a shining light to the rest of us as their whole world changes. I can only imagine the kind of mental energy and faith that takes. Wishing for a happy outcome for your friend.
