There are times in life when you need to take a step back and appreciate the moment. In the middle of a typically busy work day, I was surprised with a gift by a group of my friends. They each picked out items especially for me, wrote sweet cards and shipped everything out just in time for my next treatment. The thoughtfulness and sincerity of what they did brought me to tears.
After opening all of the lovely gifts, one of my sweet friends looked at me and said, “You are so loved.”
I know that I’ve said it before but there are many times in life that I get caught up in the day to day activities. The last week and half or so, where I felt pretty good, have been a whirlwind as I try to get into a (new) normal routine, catch up on life and prepare for the upcoming treatment. At times, the hustle and bustle of life pushes aside the emotions of what is happening.
Today is a day that, amidst the chaos, I am granted a moment. A moment to pause and look around. A moment to let the good, happy emotions wash over me. A moment to see the people that surround me with love, support and kindness. A moment to be reminded that I am loved, through and through.
Today, I am humbled.
