Just a thought, but when I was first diagnosed in August of 2015 I stumbled across a book by Michele Cushatt—she was writing about her recent experience with cancer (tongue) in her memoir “Undone”. Michele is very steadfast in her faith and I think you will greatly enjoy and find comfort in reading through her book as well as her blog. Check it out at, MicheleCushatt.com, I think you will find a kindred spirit.
Thank you for that.
Tomorrow I must face my church for the first time in many weeks. (*Have been in another town for radiation-Chemo)
A great little Salvation Army Corp being folk from all parts of the community.
A group of folk who really love my wife and I, and I can see more than ever how much they care.
I want to be with them again but I even feel a bit scared to turn up..... all normal I know.
I just want to say 'thank you' to them.
Hopefully not cry too much.
To return to a close loving fellowship like that can be scary when you have been away fighting cancer.
What do you say when so mixed up?
How do you appreciate folk who I now know are really caring not just 'churchy type members who have to care because the bible says so'?
I will work it out fine but realise that everyone in my life, family, friends etc, are not the same to me anymore. They have not changed I have!
Thanks for listening to my rave...... life has certainly changed.
Aged 56 - I feel really young...

*Decided to live to 100 as I will get a telegram from Her Majesty the Queen when 100yrs old. I so, so want one.
Am a Salvation Army chap so I complete 'knee drill' (prayer) to the Commander in Chief often. For myself personally this helps me through.
