So, it is the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The house is quiet, with the exception of the tv blathering on in the background. Caught a segment on "Today" about a lovely, brilliant young woman named Suleika Jaouad, who has been writing about her experiences with cancer. You can read more about her on her blog: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/category/voices-2/life/
If you take the time to read through her blogs, you will find that Ms. Jaouad is positive and optimistic. She is quite realistic and graciously honest in her writings, though she has chosen to be a catalyst for kindness and enlightenment in her journey through the cancer matrix. Recently she wrote about the additional challenges one must accommodate when Mother Nature decides to dance upon the waves with the wind as her partner. While some take a lighthearted approach to hurricane watches and warnings, people with seriously life-altering diagnoses must also consider whether their treatments will be affected, and if so, for how long.
Kudos to you, Suleika Jaouad, for bringing a very sobering point of existence into the light.
For this, I am grateful . . .
