The gifts of cancer. TGOC
Tell everyone you love, that you love them. It really messes with their heads.
Hug a complete stranger, and give him all your cash. Keep the homeless guys in cash. I could care less if they use it for drugs, or alcohol or for food. Its a gift. No strings attached. Get a life.
Compliment somebody! Look! Open your eyes and make someone’s day. Be sincere and actually see your world.
Say thank you when someone has helped.
Take action. Don’t just talk about doing something, or think about it, just go do it!
I got two of the best guys in the world that work in my neighborhood. They are two Mexicans that make about 10 bucks an hour, and neither one of them speaks a lot of English. When I went to the hospital for my 2nd surgery, my roof fell apart and had a six inch wide nine foot long hole in it. When I got home, these two guys had re-roofed my whole house. Without a blink of an eye. I asked them if they could do it this fall, but I had no expectation that they would get it done while I was in the hospital for a day surgery. They charged $300.00!!!!!!!!!!!! When was the last time you got a roof for that?
The lady that runs the gift shop in the medical office at Pac Med on capitol hill listened to me when I dropped by after seeing the oncologist. Of course, I am telling everyone to get a mammogram. She is about 50 and she said no she had never done that. I told her I would be back in a week and she better have an appointment. I shared my story with her. I didn’t get back for another two months. She was so excited when she seen me!!! (This is the place I bought my cancer bag the first visit). She wanted a hug, but I said NO…just a smile please…it was after the mastectomy! She had gifts for me. A purple scarf…I wear almost everywhere I go…a purple bracelet that matched that I love. And she gave me a calendar…..Life …Plan B! She scheduled the mammogram!
Gifts appearing out of no where. New Friends.
I found courage and strength from an on-line friend. I am trying to figure out how I can send her son to college cause she won’t be here. I will have to find out how much time I have, and how old he is; and then figure it out…I am pretty good about figuring things out.
There is a reason for everything that happens. Who’s going to cross your path today? What are you going to do?
Have a great day!!!!!!!
