    Howdy, fcs. Hope that you are well.

    This landed in my inbox today, and this seemed as good a place as any to post it.

    I catch myself doing this exact same thing, sometimes and it kills me.





    F A M I L Y

    I ran into a stranger as he passed by,
    'Oh excuse me please' was my reply.


    He said, 'Please excuse me too;
    I wasn't watching for you.'


    We were very polite, this stranger and I.
    We went on our way and we said goodbye.


    But at home a different story is told,
    How we treat our loved ones, young and old.


    Later that day, cooking the evening meal,
    My son stood beside me very still.


    When I turned, I nearly knocked him down.
    'Move out of the way,' I said with a frown...


    He walked away, his little heart broken.
    I didn't realize how harshly I'd spoken.


    While I lay awake in bed, God's still small voice came to me and said,


    'While dealing with a stranger,
    common courtesy you use,
    but the family you love, you seem to abuse.


    Go and look on the kitchen floor,
    You'll find some flowers there by the door.


    Those are the flowers he brought for you.
    He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue.


    He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise,
    you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes.'


    By this time, I felt very small,
    And now my tears began to fall.


    I quietly went and knelt by his bed;
    'Wake up, little one, wake up,' I said.


    'Are these the flowers you picked for me?'
    He smiled, 'I found 'em, out by the tree.


    I picked 'em because they're pretty like you.
    I knew you'd like 'em, especially the blue.'


    I said, 'Son, I'm very sorry for the way I acted today;
    I shouldn't have yelled at you that way.'

    He said, 'Oh, Mom, that's okay. I love you anyway.'


    I said, 'Son, I love you too,
    and I do like the flowers, especially the blue.'

    Very often, we pour ourselves more into work than into our own family, an unwise investment indeed, don't you think?

    Well it is Tuesday and not a good day, sick weak shaky.
    Or is it a good day great weather and I was feeling sorry for myself. “oh I can’t even enjoy a great day like today I feel so sh1ty”

    Heck I got the Lap top and went out on the deck. “oh I feel sick this suck I wish I were able to work ,play feel good., boo who”.
    Then I thought Look you have a great wife who puts up with this a great son. Your staging might not have gone down but it NOT Gone UP, I not End stage and I not dead. I can still set on the Deck, I might make the RSES Meeting this Sat. Were still able to pay bills.

    We know others who can say none of that. I not the only cancer patient in this world and I much better off the many.
    What they first found I should be dead or end stage I’m not.

    Is it a bad day? NO. It is a Great day out there today and I don’t feel so hot (but I look hotter than Twillie). There is a difference Cancer SUCK but Life doesn't’t have to.

    Just some thoughts

    Every thanks for listening.

    That's a good mindset to have. I sometimes feel sorry for myself then I think about how much better off we are than others and my problems don't seem so big anymore. I just say,"I could be STK- and then suddenly I'm happy to be me again."

    and thennnn?

    The place isn't quite the same without our resident dikweed.
