Crawling Out

Well, this round was a bit harder than the last. Don't worry...I am fine. I was just fatigued more and slept most of Tuesday and Wednesday. I couldn't find a food that I wanted to eat, so I drank Ensure and Boost to keep my strength up. Today, I actually had two small meals and feel okay. I am taxed, but not naseauous. So, the weekend looks bright despite the forecast and we will enjoy it. We are going to try and see the salmon run at Salmon days tomorrow morning and then on Sunday do a small Canadian Thanksgiving celebration, but we will see on those days. Not too much planning this weekend and that is kinda nice. I smelled fall in the air this morning when I got the paper off the porch. The leaves are starting to turn. It is really is quite beautiful, but so is every October - my favorite time of year. Enjoy, Ang

Fall is my favorite time of the year, the crisp October days remind me of going to football games on Saturdays, the smell of burning leaves and wood stoves and the brisk air that makes everything seem sharper, better defined. One of my very favorite songs is "September Song" as done by Walter Huston.(Yes, Walter Huston)
Rest and regain your strength.
Love to all, pat&mag

After reading your last 2 blogs I am reminded of the wonderful book by Don Miguel Ruiz..."The Four Agreements~ A Toltec Wisdom Book." I believe that you embody the 4th agreement: Always Do Your Best.

I send a few passages to you now to honor this very important truth and your ability to always do your best...

"Under any circumstance, always do your best, no more and no less. But keep in mind that your best is never going to be the same from one moment to the next. Everything is alive and changing all the time, so your best will sometimes be high quality, and other times it will not be as good. When you wake up refreshed and energized in the morning, your best will be better than when you are tired at night. Your best will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick, or sober as opposed to drunk. Your best will depend on whether you are feeling wonderful and happy, or upset, angry or jealous.

Regardless of the quality, keep doing your best - no more and no less than your best. If you try too hard to do more than your best, you will spend more energy than is needed and in the end your best will not be enough. When you overdo you deplete your body and go against yourself, and it will take you longer to accomplish your goal.

Just do your best---in any circumstance in your life."

Cancer is a great equalizer. There is an old saying,"Adversity is when a man is introduced to himself." I too an walking the cancer road. There are so many people along the way that you don't expect to see. Cancer opens your eyes to many new things. Your strong character sets a wonderful example to those who have lost the desire to fight. You and your family are in my prayers.
