All the chores from yesterday still need to be accomplished, but they can wait another day as I celebrate the joy of this one which involved taking a neighbor to Bath for chemo treatment. We left early on this rainy morning, but there was no dampness in the car. We chatted the entire hour’s drive, and I’m betting her throat was as dry as mine when we arrived at the Mid Coast Hospital.
It’s amazing all the things you can talk about in the confines of a car, and we covered lots of bases. The subjects ranged from kids to gardens to marriage to work and all the areas in between. And, of course, we talked about the future and what an unknown it is for all of us, even more so when you are battling for your life.
What I loved about our time together was how open and honest it was and how much we laughed. I am so grateful for the privilege of being one of her designated drivers and can’t wait for our next trip down the road. My prayer for her is that she beat this disease that is trying to claim her body so that she can have more years to spend with her young family. If you say prayers, include her in yours.
