Good News Gratitude by Angie Ledbetter


I felt like a bear just waking from a long dark hibernation, enjoying the renewed sense of life spring always brings. All this is possible, even though I'm not quite as hairy or big as this mammal, it's October and not even close to spring, and I haven't eaten any flowers yet today.

Nonetheless, I am overjoyed at the good news my mom got at her oncologist's office. In her battle with a deadly brain tumor (one year today!), the latest MRI shows she is holding her own.

Is there really anything better than hearing good news about someone you love dearly? If so, I can't think of what that might be right off the top of my head. Today, I celebrate the wonderfulness of joyful tidings.

Wonderful new! Along the same lines my sister who is fighting breast cancer right now sent me an email this morning saying that she is feeling well enough to be considering finding a part-time job. Yay!
