Thank you for yet another weekly round-up, and thank you for including my post.
Wishing you a Christmas filled with many moments of peace and contentment. It’s going to be a very different holiday, but hoping we can all find some joy in it nonetheless.
Also, hoping your dad is doing alright. xx
Pingback: Weekly Round-Up – No Half Measures
Marie, thank you always for this weekly share. It is a labor of love reflected in your efforts and those who love being part of the Round-up! Merry Christmas from afar, but close in heart.
As always my heart is filled with gratitude, yet especially now during the holidays and it’s hard to believe it will be six years in March since my de novo diagnosis and five years since the blog was born. Had I not gone to a retreat and felt the courage to call myself a writer I don’t know if I’d have thrived as long as I’ve lived. It’s one thing to know I have a terminal illness, it’s another to live with it and not consider myself dying from it. I’m currently struggling through three posts – one for https://cancerbus.com/, one for lbbc.org, and one guest post all of which are in the final stage of completion. Having several copies of Julia’s anthology on my table in the living room gives me pride and also some sadness knowing we lost several people who I really cared for this year and my heart is heavy with mourning for them, for those who loved them and for myself, too. It’s a stark reminder of the tenuous life we endurers lead. But with your love and support I know my voice is bull horned not just echoing in the vastness of the virtual world and for that I cannot give you enough of my heart filled love.
Oh and I do hope dads gotten better and recovery is imminent!
A GOOD VARIETY OF CARING PEOPLE1
