Waiting

These last 47 days have been an exercise in waiting. I have had an "extreme" summer and was eagerly anticipating a return to normalcy come September 12th when I began my sixth year of teaching preschool. It is always such a joy to meet new 4 year-olds, their parents, their siblings.

Cancer brings with it many things. One of the biggies is waiting. Waiting for results. Waiting for appointments. Waiting for call-backs on lab work and scheduling, and in my case, waiting for my surgeon to return after his vacation. It can be so frustrating!

A dear friend of mine sent me this article. I highly recommend it for anyone who is waiting for anything. (yep, that's YOU!)
