Quote of the Day
don’t get to pick
the time and place
for our greatest battles.”
– Graham Garrison
I’m awaiting the arrival of Graham Garrison’s novel Hero’s Tribute in my mailbox. In the meantime, I used one of my favorite search tools and ‘googled’ his name; it was sad to read that after the publication of his book (in which his hero has cancer), his father was diagnosed with cancer.
Recently a very beloved uncle finished his long battle with cancer and my mother also died of cancer.
It is such an insidious disease.
I was grateful to be with my mother in the hospital during her last ten days (the nurses wheeled in a cot so I could stay by her bedside during this time). Although she suffered horribly and it was painful to watch her endure this, I repeat: I was thankful we had this time together during her last days. God be with her. God be with Graham Garrison’s father.
