50 Days of Hope

Daily inspiration for your journey through cancer by Lynn Eib. This book is very small, it can fit into your purse/pocket for an easy out-of-pocket read. You can read a little bit each day to get you through chemo and the life changing of chemicals roaming through your body. The book delivers in spiritual strength and insight. The real stories mentioned are positive light to inspire hope to you even with a cancer diagnoses.

Lynn Eib is a patient advocate and cancer survivor from colon cancer. 50 Days of Hope is writing by her own experiences and offers stories of people who have been and still discovered God through it all.

I am not a cancer patient, but my Mawmaw was. I seen with my own eyes what cancer can do, but I do not know the pain or treatment.

Eib wants other cancer patients journey to be meaningful, comfortable, and for them to trust in God’s will. She shows how to bring comfort to anyone dealing with cancer diagnosis, even if it is personally, family or a friend.

This is a book that I am giving to a former school mates mom, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer not long ago. May she find the book hopeful and receive comfort through her journey.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale Media Center. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Never, Ever, I hope

Google Image 30 days of Truth is about bringing out the best in yourself. Also, to let people see the “real” you through what you write. For thirty days I will write about myself, I will dig deep and I hope you can start this journey with me. 30 days of Truth; Are you ready!?


Day 06
– Something you hope you never have to do.
A divorce. I have seen how much damage they can do to your spirit, soul, family, and friends. I have been through one and it took everything of me to come out of the depression I was in.
Bury my child/children. To read Blogs about loosing a child, I can sit here with tears rolling down my face. My heart goes out to the ones that lost a child/children/stillborn/miscarriage/grown-up. I hope one day yall can find comfort, peace, and joy. That has to be one of the hardest things for anyone to go through, and every one of you guys are so strong!
Homeless; I hope to continue having a place over my head and food in the cabinets. There is so many homeless here in the states; they have no where to go, sometimes they don’t even eat.
Tornado; I hope I never have to live through one. Maybe go to the tornado alley and watch one in the distance, but not be stuck in my house as I pray for my life.
Cancer; I hope I never have to see a loved one go through cancer again. It was hard to see my Mawmaw in so much pain, and watching her become fragile before my eyes.
Faith; I hope I never lose sight of my faith. That will be one crazy place to live. Faith is what gets me through all the hard times I am faced with.

I hope no one ever has to think about any of things, or even live through them. What a sad question today. On a happy note…
I hope all of you have a wonderful, fun, joyful day, today! It is the middle of the week and it is time to start counting down the days till the weekend.

Weight-Loss Update!

Most of my readers know I was going through a hard time in May. Dealing with just normal battles that gets thrown at you. I did manage to lose another 6lbs!!! OMG. I was so grateful to have lost weight. It was such a rough month for me. I have, however, have lost 19lbs since the beginning!!! Beginning of which was April. I am down to 172 🙂 I am soooo happy!! I will be taking my “diet-pill” through this month as well. Which I am thankful for! Also, I went to the doctor to tell him about my allergies. I haven’t been able to breathe, my throat is itchy, Im coughing like you got something caught in your throat, it is horrible… Well, I ask before I leave if I could have a shot. He told me No. I then begged him, he looked at me and said, nope, the shot will make you gain weight. Hmmmph! Well that solved that, so I did get some pills though, I am hoping it will help and I sure as heck dont need anything that will make me gain weight :/
On some more important news…

My Pawpaws Birthday was yesterday. I called him to wish him a happy birthday, least I thought so. I got told that they went in and had to “scoop” out a growth in his bladder, which is cancer, but we wont know which kind till next week. They don’t think it will be anything serious, but they will still send it off. It didn’t have roots or any attention to spread. So, I called Pawpaw today to tell him I did call, and glad to hear he is back home and doing well. He wasn’t in the hospital long, just a few hours, but anything can be worrisome. So that just added to my “month” of bad things happening. But of course I will pray that all this will end, maybe eventually I can even breath again.

Ohhhh, on a good note. I did work out in my “landscaping” today. It was nice to get outside and watch my work come to life. I just need to transplant some more “monkey grass” (thats what we call it here in the south). Till Tomorrow my friends.

Memories

Have you ever had someone you loved die?

My grandmother died in 2004. I never thought I would picture this growing up. She was my rock, comfort, and like my 2nd mom.

I would get off the bus and walk to her house before walking to my own. She would make sure I had something to eat, a crossword book, or a recipe book. We would help each other out with the Crossword because I never would get the right words.

I miss those times I could just go to Mawmaw’s and talk to her. She would give me advice, take my hand and tell me everything was going to be alright.

She loved her flowers, garden, cooking, and spending time with others. I will never forget how she hugged or the way she would make pound cake and bring me the beater from the mixer. She would tell me she loved me everyday.

I remember one time I didn’t stop at her house, I ran all the home (Which her house was only like 50 yards from mine). I got to the front door and the phone was already ringing, wondering why in the world I did not stop for supper, and that she had a bowl I could lick clean. She always knew how to make my day so much better!

I miss her everyday, but sometimes I just sit somewhere and go back to the memories I have of her.

It is hard to believe that cancer took her away from us. If you never had anyone close to you die of cancer, it is so hard to watch your love one go through pain, hurt, torment, and no strength. There is not a day I don’t think about her. I know she would love my little girl as much as she loved everyone else.

If I could bring her back just for 1 day, I would.
