So true, Christmasstar!

Glad to hear yours is going well! Mine is going well, too, thanks! I've just been playing with the kids, watching tv, and pinning on Pinterest. I love that!

It was before the Internet and personal computers were in wide use, so it was a lonely and painful experience. It's a great blessing to have a husband and friends now who wouldn't withdraw if there's ever a recurrence. I got through those times only through the grace of God.

I apologize for the "outburst," but just had to come out with it. I'm just so grateful that you are not the type to quietly disappear when support is needed. Yes, it's awkward and painful to be around someone with cancer and not know what to say or how to help. But at least you can BE there. Just that much is powerful medicine.

I agree with you totally, Merry. The same can also be said for surviving suicide. It is not the same thing but in a way, it is because you find out who your REAL friends are. I was looked at as damaged and ostracized by some and just plain written off as a friend to others when my first husband passed 20 years ago. I found out quickly that some people are all for you unless suicide comes into the picture - That seems to change perceptions of many, though not all. Now, I am sorry for my outburst but I felt it needed to be said. I guess the long and short of it is REAL friends stick with a person, as we all will with Seawaters, no matter what...Peace to you my friend xo
