Courage Under Fire



October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and what joggled my memory to bring the cause to bloggie central at this late date is because a fellow employee lost his wife to this battle this very month. Her name was Mary Thomas. Mother of 10 year old Miles and wife to Everage - a man who is humble and strong in his faith. I've been sending Everage inspirational quotes of encouragement & comfort since his return to work. Yesterday I sent him this quote:

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. ~Harriet Beecher Stowe

His response :

Thank you. God is good.

After all he has endured his faith never faltered. I wish I could be more like him.

It's such a vicious disease - I'm glad you are able to offer support to your coworker.

Anonymous - so sorry your mother is having to go through this.

I have two aunts in my family who are both survivors. It's a scary thing to see someone you love fight for their life...

My SIL is a survivor.
I currently have 2 other friends who are battling, and another who survived breast cancer last year only to have cervical/uterine cancer this year.
It's an insidious disease.

Anonymous, I too am sorry that your Mother is battling yet again.

I have no doubt that your kind, thoughtful and encouraging words are helping this man more than you know.
Good all over you Kimberly!

As we are honouring breasts...I have a story.....

Several years ago my Mother was going to get a breast reduction[they are HUGE!] Before her consultation appointment, completely deluded ,she asked me,' Do yu think they will think I am not big enough to have this operation?'
'Duh! No!!!!' I said[supportively]

When she went and took off her blouse the male doctor said,' Oh, they are MASSIVE!'
Then he drew on them etc.AS she stpped off the table, she could not see the little stool she was supposed to step down on ,because her big breasts blocked her view[and the whole stool] and she fell and banged her head against the wall.


I never laughed so hard as when she told me this!
