Glimpse

Today while I was out and about, I saw an old man picking wildflowers at the side of the road. That just tickled me for some reason, made me glad. I wondered what the rest of his story was. Was there a little old woman waiting at home? Would he swing jauntily into his house with poetry and wild flowers? Would she squeal with delight and call him 'dearest'? I had a nice afternoon imagining a story to go with that little glimpse.

The pathology report is in. There were two tumors, both benign.

Some wild flowers make wonderful bouquets. My favorite is sunflowers. Once you rid them of bugs. LOL

Lydia said...

So glad that you had a lovely time watching a lovely man.

Also SO GREATFUL that you had a positive report. Your (and our) prayers were difinately answered. I am thanking God right now. Boy, I'm amazed at how moved I am. I guess it is just because I know so many people right now in the middle of a battle against cancer. I was all reports for those I love to be benign.

OK, sorry about the 1.5 million spelling errors there. I was all mushy about good news.

Caroline said...

Debbie - what wonderful news!!!! Did you do the little happy dance to celebrate!!!

Debby said...

You know, I did not happy dance. I just was so glad in my heart. Tim was so glad. Two of us sat at the dinner table and were just glad together.

And Lydia? Mushy is okay. I'm kind of emotional myself today. Spelling errors excused.

Lovely news Deb. Have been there also, and the emotion can be sometimes so deeply felt that the relief and joy just washes through you and becomes a state of being that is really hard to express I find. There is nothing quite like it. I am so delighted for you and thankful for your good doctor that didn't leave you in limbo for too long. You deserve such peace of mind.
Go now and live like there is no tomorrow and plan as though you have eternity (not an original thought I have to confess, but one I like).
Enjoy yourself Love Barb

Two benign tumors, yes!

(That's also what people called my ears before I grew into them).
