One of the worst things you can do when someone you care about is diagnosed with cancer or another deadly illness is to back away. I'm blessed that my friends and family were there for me, although there were a few that I had to reach out to first. Talking to other patients one thing that keeps coming up is how differently their friends treat them post diagnosis. The best thing you can do is to treat them exactly the same as you did before. If you care about them, find out what they are going through, listen to them, sympathise with them, but don't ignore them, don't pretend they aren't going through the fight of their lives and don't let your fears get in the way of being there for them.

“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
when there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand,
to be loved as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying [to ourselves] that we are born to eternal life.”
― St. Francis of Assisi

Nearly two thousand years ago and halfway around the world a 33 year old Jewish carpenter was crucified. He had spent the last 3 years of his life feeding the hungry, healing the sick, embracing the outcast and forgiving the unforgivable.
He made the claim that God loved the world; that faith, forgiveness and love could overcome anything; That we are not alone, because God is with us and that li...fe is more than we imagine.
This young brown man claimed the he was the Son of God, sent by God to save the world from itself. In his short life he had done no harm but only fed, only healed, only embraced and only forgave. He wasn't political, wasn't wealthy, wasn't armed but was put on trial, was convicted, was beaten and mutilated and never fought back. He was nailed by his hands and his feet to a cross and his dying words were a prayer of forgiveness.
Three days after he died he left his grave. Tomorrow, all over the world, nearly two thousand years later, millions of people who follow this man will celebrate the day that he left that grave, the day that God gave us grace to be like this man, to be the sons and daughters of God and to feed, heal, embrace and forgive like he did.
I'm one of those people who will be celebrating. I know a lot of my friends probably roll their eyes when they hear me talk about Jesus, but if you know me then you know I am not an ignorant person, not superstitious and I'm not prone to flights of fancy. I believe in Christ, believe in His message, believe in his work, believe in his death, his sacrifice and his resurrection. I believe that God loves the world and that faith, forgiveness and love can overcome anything.
Happy Easter!

Thanksgiving Day: I'm thankful that I will be breaking bread with my family today. 28 years (for me) through ups and downs, good and bad, sickness and health, laughter and tears, gains and losses, through distances, through time, we have persevered as a family and earned the right to celebrate all that we have in each other
