I shake my head–
my stomach keeps churning and churning!
The News noise rehashes over and over and over and over and over…
I feel violated…again!
I feel that word I hate…
This blog’s name is “Cancer TOGETHER” and shares light-hearted living
for people and their families who are facing or have faced a dark adversity.
We understand what it feels like to live in fear and darkness and dread.
But we understand the power of not dwelling there!
There is power in holding to GOOD!
To hold to my God,
to those I love,
to the Positive,
to the Light,
to the Power in each of Us,
to this Nation of Freedom,
to my Values,
and to my Neighbors
which stretch from coast to coast.
An elderly Cherokee Native American was teaching his grandchildren about life…He said to them,
“A fight is going on inside me, it is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
One wolf is evil—he is fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret greed, arrogance, self pity, guilt, jealousy, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, competition, superiority, and ego.
The other is good—he is joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.
This same fight is going on inside of you, and inside every other person, too.”
They thought about if for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather,
“Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied,
“The one you feed.”
We have today!
We understand to hug our loved ones a little tighter.
We understand the importance of forgetting passed grudges
and to say you are sorry.
We understand to put our pride aside.
We understand what it means to be grateful for our blessings and we thank God.
We know that the most joy comes from time spent with our families.
We try to continue to Love and Live, most of the time with a smile on our face!
We have today!
Fear is not who I chose to feed!
What about you?
