How can you not be happy seeing this face every night?!
Or when you go out to feed your other horse and he greets you like this!
I have had several people comment lately that I am handling my current situation very well. I honestly don't know how else to handle it. I spent a few days as a crying mess, but really that's not going to help anything. Yes, I am a little afraid about having surgery, recovering from it, and starting the rest of my treatment. Even more than that, I wonder if it will come back, and I will be fighting this battle again later on down the road. But I won't allow those fears to consume me. I know that God is watching over me and will give me the strength to make it through, one day at a time. Life becomes more precious when you really realize that it has no guarantees. I plan to live each day to the fullest, because you never know when it will be your last.
I have also received so much love and support from my family, friends, co-workers, and church family. Most days I have extra facebook messages, cards in the mail when I get home, or someone just pausing an extra minute to ask me how I'm doing. If anything, this has just made me more aware of how I can impact other peoples lives as they go through hard times. Just reaching out and letting them know that you care. I recently came across this quote and it is so true! How many people do we come in contact with through out the day who are fighting a much worse battle than we are, and we don't even know it?
"Be Kind; Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
