behind the things

May 21, 2012 · 1 comment

Cookies, books, magazines, cards, slippers, blankets, a teddy bear, snacks, candy, dinners, Slurpees, flowers, plants…

these are all things I’ve received over the last few weeks from people near and far.  From neighbors to friends to friends of friends to people I’ve never met in person. It’s pretty spectacular.

But it’s not the things, it’s what is behind them.

The good thoughts, the prayers, the desire to help me get through these treatments and recovery, the care and love for me and my family. Some things came from the people who live in my computer; some came from right next door. The bottom line is this: people care about me and want to help me and that is amazing to me.  Not that I think I’m not deserving, but I am so used to being the one who gives and takes care of and worries about that I am truly blown away by the love I’ve been shown.

Life is good.
