Today Darlene called and said that the doctors said the cancer has not spread to her liver, kidney, or bones. What a praise! I told her I have a treat I want to make for her because it is something that is refreshing and probably will taste good. I missed her very much at today's staff meeting. I always joked and said that on 'Survivor Sears' we had an alliance. And we did. And we do.
A week ago my dear friend Darlene was diagnosed with cancer. I don't know how many days we will have left to laugh together but today we did. I asked her if black people go bald from chemo and she said that they do. She said she already has a wig and I asked her if it was blonde, like me. We laughed about all the possibilities - blonde, redhead, and even blue. I don't know how many more days we will have to laugh together, but today we did and it was nice.
I am a wife, mom, sister, grandma, friend, and human resource specialist who happens to love reading, animals,Diet Coke, simple pleasures, being outside, changing seasons, my family, my Lord. I am a private person. A passionate person. A person who sometimes struggles with being still and knowing that He is God. Sometimes I think God looks down at me and says, 'Becky, Becky, Becky'. I then remind Him that He created me totally unique and thank him that He knows my name!
