It won't ever happen to me. Ever say that?
I did and that is why it was always so easy for me to reach out, to help, to donate, to give or just be there for others who needed something or someone. Now, I'm faced with so much I never thought I would have to deal with physically or mentally.
I'm overwhelmed. No, not by the thought of an illness, but by the reaching out, the help, the donations and all the love and prayers I'm receiving. I have been touched by so many friends near and far, ones I speak to every day and some I haven't spoken with in years. Strangers (not any longer), but strangers praying for me, cooking for my family, donating their time and being so very generous - for this I am so blessed.
