Thursday 2 August 2012: Hope
I was pretty tired today, but that is to be expected, after the sleepless nights leading up to the treatment and getting everything in order beforehand. I slept late - what a concept - and even took a nap in the afternoon. I also spent a great deal of time just talking to God about all that has happened this year and reading the Bible. What strength I feel now. I loved this photo for today, because the starburst speaks of the hope that I have for the future, and the light lining the leaves so intricately reminds me of the "so-called" silver lining in every cloud. I would not want to re-live much of this year, but I do know that I'm a stronger person and I've also learned more empathy for others when they face health challenges. So, there is good that can come out of pretty much anything . . . we just sometimes need to have our lenses set on f/22 to be able to see it.
