Feelings, nothing more than feelings...

I am having an emotional day where everything seems to get me down. My cancer, the looming surgery followed by RAI and then the bills that will be coming in after that.
I am filled with dread over all the bills. It really seems to consume me at times. There is nothing I can do about it. I have to get this cancer removed.

One thing that has brought me peace today is a poem I happened across. I don't know who wrote it... but I found it calming.

What Cancer Cannot Do

It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot quench the spirit.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.

I cannot let the negatives consume me! I must fight! I cannot let this cancer shatter my hopes, destroy my confidence, or silence my courage!

I will fight. I will be a survivor! No matter the costs!

I am worth it!

Know that we are out here praying for you! And I know its hard but try to keep the money aspect out of your mind. You can worry about that later, after your body is well.
