Today started pretty lousy. I am still sick, (although slight improvement from yesterday) and I was bummed out.
With only 2 days to go til the surgery, I was hoping I would be out enjoying the sunshine. At the very least I thought I'd get some house cleaning and prepping for thursday done. But, being sick, nothing got done.
Then, around noon, a co-worker calls me. She has gone through breast cancer and a bi lateral mastectomy 4 years ago. She knows exactly what I'm feeling,
as she's been there, done that.
I tell her I'm in my p.j's and laying on the couch. "Get dressed" she says, "I'm coming over and I'm bringing you something". "Oh, and comb your hair, I'll be taking
So, I quickly get changed, look in the mirror and decide to look away. I still look sick. I don't have enough time to jump in the shower, so I comb my hair, put on some
dangly earrings and find something bright to wear. At least I won't look so drab.
Then I wait.
She came by with not one, but TWO beautiful gifts for me from my co-workers. And such a lovely card. It brought tears to my eyes.
I really am blessed that I have people around me who love me and care enough to show it.
My day just got a whole lot better.
