The courage to look forward

It's been a long year. I thought chemotherapy would kill me, but it was probably my only key to survival. I didn't know if there was a purpose in doing anything if I'd end up dying anyway. Looking back now, after my oncologist told me with a smile that I was responding to the therapy, I feel like giving myself...

Beating A Toxic Relationship...........Cancer

Have you ever been in a toxic relationship with a person? Cancer in any form is like that. I have been through enough and have heard enough real life accounts to know that cancer CAN be beaten. Medical treatments are good for what they are, but you also have to change your frame of mind. You cannot have a defeatist...

Dear Heaven, I hope youre amazing

“We’re all going to die someday.”
“But what happens when you die?”
“Hopefully, you’ll go to Heaven. You better start doing good things.”
“But what happens in Heaven? Will I be conscious of this life? Will I be conscious of anything at all? Will it be like before I was born, where I won’t even know what’s happening? I just…exist...

Food is My Four Letter Word

"Can I get you something to eat, mom?" 
"No thank you, I'm not hungry right now."
And so it starts. Our daily ritual. Our dance. My daughter earnestly offers food. I earnestly avoid food. She's worried about me wasting away and doesn't understand that I've got no appetite and food just doesn't taste good anymore. "It's time for breakfast, mom. I made your...

Who Wants To Ride Shotgun?

The skies are gray with the clouds hanging low They're spitting rain through the silver sun's glow Will this be how the heavens will take me? Or is it just a reflection of my feelings lately?    The days and nights blur the months and years The mixed emotions are blurring the tears It's hard to tell what I feel anymore Like the game is nearly over, so...

Prayer

LORD, please forgive me for all of my sins.  I know I need to do better.  Please help me to only say kind things about others. LORD, please help me to hold onto my mind as long as possible.  Sometimes it feels like the puzzle pieces are slipping slowly away. LORD, thank you for leading me here, so that I can preserve...

Live Like You Were Dying - Wait, what?

How many times did people like Tim McGraw tell you to “live like you were dying” to try and motivate you to live your life to the fullest?

Well, Tim McGraw and co., I’ve just found out that I’m dying sooner rather than later, and my inclination is not to go jump out of a plane but to keep...

I can still feel you...

My wife was a vibrant, out-going person who made my life so beautiful just by being a part of it. She died of heart problems a few months ago, and for a while I lost myself in my grief. It felt like the sun would never shine again, but what they say is true - time does heal a broken...

Gone, But Wisdom Remains

One of the weekly chat questions, "Rear View Mirror," inspired  me on to create a list of my mistakes and poor choices, some with greater consequence than others.  It's disturbing how long my list became. I kept  thinking about why I made this blunder and that error.  Was I just too overwhelmed, was I sleep deprived, was I in a...

Into the light of a new year

The year 2017 was a strange year. A project at work failed but we got a new important client, our son entering college, family members passed away, and my diagnosis. It felt like for every joy or beautiful thing we received this year, a sad news would follow after. My wife said that we could also look at it the...

My life

I want to remember these past two weeks as I've felt well enough to savor a new experience, come to grips with the reality of my disease, and enjoy my friends.  Throwing Pottery
I talked Mike into joining me for a pottery throwing intensive. Yes, that is a thing.  My pot came out all crooked, but Mike mastered that wheel.  Even...

Peace for our hearts

I was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease in July this year. We had to go through so many new and confusing details to deal with the diagnosis. We were frustrated that time didn't wait for us. We were frustrated because we had to change. For the first Christmas with this diagnosis, though, we didn't want to do anything different. My wife...
