A friend sent me a red flower from Fellow Flowers. I love what the card that came with it says.
Love. Warrior spirit, determined heart. Caring for the world around me. A passion unrelenting. Ready for the challenge, unshakeable in my commitment. Grit; earned through effort . . . because I said I would. Take me to my limit and watch me work. Bringing it – every damn day.
It takes strength to do what you love.”
There has been an awful lot of emotional turmoil for me today as I face the reality of chemotherapy starting this Tuesday. I’ve read the card a couple of times since I got it yesterday.
What do I love? I love life. So, a big thank you to Erin for reminding me of the obvious. My strength will be focused on doing what I need to do to make sure I keep living.
