Swan Boat at Lover's Point, Pacific Grove, Cal.
These Swan Boats were used as part of the Feast of Lanterns Celebration for many years. http://www.feast-of-lanterns.org/
I slept better last night--not well, but better than the night before. And I am feeling minimally better today. My right hand has been numb to the point of not being able to use it and it seems to have more feeling today. I know I've been whining and I am very tired of cancer and chemo, but I also know that I am almost done with the infusions. Mid-October I will have surgery and then radiation. I am looking forward to taking a month off before the surgery, to give my body a chance to heal--yet, I would also like to just get the final parts of this over with. I want to be independent again and living my own life.
Life has been extremely challenging for the last 11-months.... and longer. Every day, I sort of wake up hoping that today will be the day that I find more peace and joy and less stress and pain. Each day, lately, I vent (usually on Facebook) and then I try to find what I am grateful for.
This morning I am grateful for the sunshine. I am grateful for the two dogs curled up at my feet. I am grateful for the family and friends that are here for me, always..... I'm not sure I can ever fully share how much I appreciate all of you, but I do.
