So, the hard part about having cancer isn't having sleepless nights, or constant fatigue, or continuing burning when urinating or constant pain reminding you of the cancer or losing muscle mass or weight gain (in the wrong areas), or the radiation and seeds treatments, but it is having to tell your kids and family - You have Cancer! Back in the day, Cancer was considered a "death sentence", meaning if you had the disease you pretty much were going to die. Our Coleman family experienced cancer and the destruction it caused via my mom, brother, sister, nephew, uncle and grandmother.
Having to tell our kids and family was the most difficult thing of them all. There were tears, heartache, and sorrow, however after discussing with each one (kid) how we were going to attack the cancer - came much relief and joy. Our whole perspective, from the beginning, has been crush this disease with joy, positive energy, fellowship, great doctors and nurses, and love. Thus, we embark on our last three sessions this week, and the Celebration will begin! Unfortunately, the side effects will linger for another 45-60 days, but it is something that we are prepared to handle and deal with.
Today, I'm feeling fairly good with some positive energy. Waiting for my grilled cheese sandwich for lunch and my long time friends, Jack, Jodi, Alex Richey and Charlotte Y (neighbor and great family friend) to come by our house and have some dinner, drinks and college football (later this evening). Life is really good and despite this small challenge, I am truly blessed! The Coleman house will be filled with love as usual.
Thought for today;
Today, know that the wind of God is blowing. This is your season. This is your time to believe again. Believe that God can open doors that no man or woman can close. Believe that He is working behind the scenes for you. Believe that it’s your season; it’s your time, and get ready to embrace every blessing He has in store for you! Because they are coming!!!
Challenge for Today;
Do something nice for someone you do not know. It could be as simple as opening a door for someone, or giving $5 to a homeless person, or complimenting a stranger on their outfit.
Love you for reading my blog today.
Was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer on July 18, 2018 which may have crushed someone's soul and spirit. However, it did the opposite, as I already knew GOD had claimed my victory over this disease and was using me as an instrument to others who suffer from this deadly disease.
