Glorious normal

Within the daily stresses of life, it's hard to take a step back and appreciate how amazing normality really is. A number of my friends are suffering from cancer and are facing hideous challenges every day. For this reason, I wanted to write a post to remind us all to remember what a blessing normality is.

You click snooze on your phone three times in a row and wish you didn't have to get out of bed.

She is bed-ridden and longs for nothing more than to jump out of bed and enjoy the simple pleasure of a walk.

You're having a bad hair day. There's a unruly frizz that will not be tamed.

She has lost her hair twice during her cancer journey and with it, she has lost a sense of her identity. She would love to have the luxury of a bad hair day.

You worry about everything you have to fit in today and feel completely over-faced.

She is in pain and can think of nothing else but coping with it, moment by moment.

You get cut up by an impatient driver.

She longs to be able to regain her freedom and jump in her car and go anywhere she likes.

You are in a state of heightened anxiety about completing all the tasks on your 'to do' list.

She had a 'bucket list' but became too unwell to complete it.

You're disconcerted about all the presents you need to buy for Christmas and how you're going to afford it.

She is aware that she may not still be here at Christmas to share it with her family.

You're annoyed with someone about something minor and it's constantly on your mind.

She is facing the real prospect of death and it is never far from her thoughts.

Normal life can be challenging, stressful, anxiety-inducing and hard work. It can also be up-lifting, enriching, joyful and fulfilling. Take a moment to celebrate the beauty of the world around you. Relish the luxury of freedom. Be thankful for the wonderful gift of time spent with those you love. These are precious moments indeed.

  1. As a sign of gratitude for how my wife was saved from CANCER, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My wife suffered cancer in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because she was my all and the symptoms were terrible, she always complain of abnormal vaginal bleeding, and she always have pain during sexual intercourse. . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure her. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to cancer . I never imagined cancer. has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my wife will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my wife used it and in one months time she was fully okay even up till this moment she is so full of life. cancer. has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony.
