The Story Behind Today's Gift
She’s not feeling very easy in her mind, body or heart right now. Her body is struggling with Leukemia. She won the first battle and beat it back into remission. But the war isn’t over and the medication she’s on might not be enough. Fear has become a frequent companion. Some days she feels overwhelmed. Other days she feels lonely and sad. Sometime’s she’s filled with anger at the maddening injustice of it all. She doesn’t want to let cancer, or any other problem, define her or change her. But her world has changed. All of this would be easier is she was back home and surrounded by her support system. But she also had to sell her home and move across the country. She’s now living on her mother-in-law’s farm in the middle of nowhere. It’s not a kind or welcoming home.
Her friend and student wants to give her some support. She knows her teacher to be a woman of remarkable strength and perseverance. She knows how kind and patience she is towards others. This friend is sorry that life has been so scary and frustrating lately. She sends love from a distance.
