Thread: Time is Precious

    I swear he was a boy in a grown mans body.


    Reese was 100% a spoon licker. If he could get the bowl and beaters too... he was even happier. He would get this childish glint in his eyes as he took the spoon.

    Reese...would you like to lick the spoon? It was like a puppy bounding in with his tail all happily wagging. ohohohoh.....a SPOON!!!!! whatsonitwhatsonitwhatsonit.... cake?cookie?cheesecake?frosting...ohletitbefrostin g.... gimmygimmygimy!!!!!!
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.

    Only I will remain.

    Well, first thanks for asking! Since it has been so long for me to get here to read your comment, I must be doing well. I am amazed, that here I am 16 months after finishing the last of my chemo treatments, and I am just now beginning to feel like my body is rebounding from activity more quickly, more like it did before all this C stuff. That's a long time, in my thinking. I am still very impatient with my neuropathy. But hey, I am playing golf… and doing most of what I want to do, so, no complaining here!

    I think about you often… and know that this grieving thing is long, long term. I know too, that it is something to experience, that is, you don't "get over it," it is what it is, and everyone, everyone has their unique experience. I think all that can be said has been said, but I do wish there were more that one could do for you.

    Yes… a "Thank you" button would be nice…. You have helped me too. Thanks!
