Accompanying My Child as He Grew Up, a Gift from God

Accompaniment is the MOST important thing, especially when the child is growing up, translated…

On my Facebook pages came my son’s dialogue abruptly, “On the June 7th graduation, will you and dad come?”, and, it’s as if I feared he might retract the invitation, I quickly wrote back, “of course!”, this graduation is a gift from god to me.

Getting diagnosed with cancer, is it scary?  Not to be taken lightly, this is a huge challenge, not only to myself, and my family as well.  Those who hadn’t had the experience, wouldn’t get to know what it’s like, living “not knowing if there’s a tomorrow”.  And still, changing my mind, what’s wonderful is, that I do NOT need to live like the rest, wasting my time away on planning the futures, just need to take advantage of now.  And so, the word “dream”, is totally excluded from my dictionaries.

My friends would jokingly call me “type A”, and I’d made fun of myself as a “busybody”.  Actually, getting to the root of all of this, I just wanted that on the day I died, there would be NO unfinished business left for me to handle,

And, outside of my expectations, I’d gotten through over twenty harsh winters, I’d cried when my son was in kindergarten, believed that I couldn’t accompany him, the heavens granted me the wish, of seeing him all the way out of graduate school, how he’d gotten a full scholarship to Princeton University.

In order to repay the kindness from the heavens above, I’d made use of the remain of my years.  I’d stepped down from my public post, and started working as a reporter of events, with my pen, reported the scene of beauty, hidden in all corners of this place, to let everybody see, the wonders of this land.

I am a cancer survivor, I’d bore witness to how being diagnosed with cancer isn’t necessarily a death sentence, I hope, that all of you who read this, can find encouragements from my words.

And so, because this woman was diagnosed with cancer (that’s a near-death experience???), and now she’s free from it, she’d naturally taken advantage of ALL the extra years she’d been endowed, and, it’s with this sort of a good attitude, she will keep on doing things that matter, and she got to see her son grow into a man too.
