Age and Health Concerns
I entered the world of C the other day when Cancer came barging in. In the breath between a few words, an incredible woman, a mother, best friend, a niece, cousins; the specter of C became a reality in their lives; and, because I love them, so too a reality in mine.
I try to confront the anguish and heartache of this unfathomable disease; the big C. Hours are spent dutifully searching medical research for answers and religious rites. I know God does have a plan, His will, will be done. I wondered, why then doesn’t God have the world pause for just a moment while I catch my breath in this world of C?
Some days it feels like I’m just slugging it out in the working world especially when I sense the enormity of C. I spend yet another day grappling with how to move on through the world of C just by myself.
When I think of her ordeal, I weep without warning. When I turn the page of a book reading poignant stories, recall times when we laughed at children playing, giggling over silly greeting cards, or helplessly laughing when she slipped and slid across the floor never breaking the dish; tears flow. Is this God’s plan?
It’s a new world with no rules and you do things you never thought about doing before and see things you never once noticed. Sending a card and pleasant talks ease the worry; surely there’s something more to help her move on in the world of C.
Then someone said always love more. Oh. Because I have always loved her, I’ll never look back and regret that I didn’t give love in some small way or fashion through the years.
That really puts it in perspective. Moving on through C is constant love. Love is all.
Love is God’s plan.
