    Amanda. You are so right. We don’t always know what someone is going through. We should try to be kind to everyone. Love you guys. Keeping you in my prayers and embracing you with hugs and love. Xo

    Maybe they were just being nice and leaving some doggie poop bags as a kind gesture? I have shared some with my neighbors and vice versa. Some were left on my door step and later the neighbor said she got some from a dog show and because she had so many she shared them with dog owners in the neighborhood. Just like they don’t know what is going on with you, you really don’t know what they were thinking or what their intention was either.

    Greetings from California! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loade…

    My husband has been going through a fight with recurrent brain cancer these last 12 years. I am sheepish to mention that we have “Pulled the Cancer Card” more than a few times to get a little extra help. I am impressed that you were able to bite your tongue during those moments mentioned in the article!
    2 weeks ago we were skiing and it wasn’t going well. Lots of falls and frustration on slopes that he used to ski with ease. After one fall he let out a huge stream of profanity, just as a mom and young kid skied by. At first I was mortified, feeling so bad that this mom/son had to listed to my frustrated husband. Then I had this same epiphany, that you never know what really is going on when someone loses it…I tend to be judgmental of adult tantrums, but had a great reminder of the importance of kindness, patience, and just enough distance to not take every tirade personally.

    Unfortunately my husband current symptoms suggest that the beast is back again….MRI next week. It is difficult finding the strength to go through this again (4th time!), but we are also lucky to have lots of support. My prayers go to you and Joe, and everyone who lives with the uncertainty of cancer. Your words are beautifully written and a real comfort to those of us who have been down that road. Well done!
