What Cancer Cannot Do

What Cancer Cannot Do

Cancer is so limited . . .
It cannot cripple Love
It cannot shatter Hope
It cannot corrode Faith
It cannot destroy Peace
It cannot kill Friendship
It cannot suppress Memories
It cannot silence Courage
It cannot invade the Soul
It cannot steal eternal Life
It cannot conquer the Spirit.

Minka: I left directions at your place. Can you believe that Swampwitch is actually giving Globbing directions. There are those who are shaking their heads in disbelief right now. Scary.

Robin: This post was supposed to go in my October posts for Breast Cancer Awareness month, but I had to post something yesterday to see if Globber was ever going to work again for me. I am a breast cancer survivor and plan to publish many things about awareness next month. I have looked everywhere to see if the author is listed anywhere but can't. Your friend might enjoy the posts because I have so many things to share that are funny, serious, helpful, etc.

SillyHily: See, Globber did it to you, too. I promise, I didn't publish your comment twice, twice.

And cancer couldn't keep you down.

Glad to see you are back with us. :)

Ahhh, so pretty. Congrats on surviving. I heard about this from another blogger friend
....and you can choose not publish this if you find it offensive.
I'm thinking about it but can't imagine why anyone would find my Martha and Josephine worth lookin' at.

I just want to tell you that you really brighten my day, everyday. I rush to see what you've posted for the day. I rush back to see what you've said about my comment. I am happy to show you what little I know and look forward to the day when you start telling me how things work.
Thank you, for being you.

Julie: Nope, pretty tough cookie.
And yes, Globber just decided to mess with me for awhile and the Globber World almost witnessed a melt-down here. Thanks for all your help. Good to be back.

Pam: First, you have taught me so much in the last three weeks. Amazing that I hadn't even seen a glob until last month. That glob was Ree's Confessions of a Pioneer Woman. And yes, I am going to follow your directions to learn how to link here. Glad to know I brighten your day. I visit your place daily and certainly enjoy getting a little glimpse of your world. Someday I may even learn how to put a cute little something by my name. Right now, Julie is trying to help me put more pics at the top of my page. Between the two of you, I might be a real Globber someday.

Dear SW,

I have been living with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma for the last 12 or so years (and unknown years before that). My wife died from Multiple Myeloma in June. I am currently in my sixth or seventh chemo treatment and have had to drop back to one I did ten years ago. One of my other blogs "Lightning Strikes Twice" details some of this.

Don't worry about mentioning cancer. I have it. It doesn't have me.

Thanks for the input. It's hard to know what to do. There are a lot of conflicting emotions. In some ways, I think that my son needs to experience the "difference" first hand. Nothing I say will really reach that part of him.
