To All Who Fight The Good Fight

To all those courageous folks who live with a rotten hand they were dealt, and still see beauty in the world - I genuflect in prayer for you.

Some of us may be dealt rotten hands so to speak, but to me I take that hand and try and turn it into something that becomes a hand of beauty.  I got sick and could not work so i turned to gardening, my hands dont type as a secretary any more but they work the soil and make beauty.  My hands also create paintings, so I took those rotten hands I was dealt and made them become positive things.
God bless you for thinking of others my friend.

I'll join you and remind myself that on some days I'm the dog and on others I'm the cat.

Beautifully put, Luddie!  I can name several people that I know, right here on AOL who have been dealt a rotten hand, and still they continue to see beauty and find humor in their situations.  I admire people like that so much!

Hugs,
Jackie

You are so right to point this out. I think that the human spirit is incredible. People can come to terms with and make something positive out of the worst situations. I wish that they didn't have to though,
Kate.

Amen.  As do I.
I can't remember if I told you this while we were IMing the other day, Cathy, (am I brain dead or what, I can't remember???), but my husband has had cancer twice.  The first time was non-hodgkin's lymphoma, the second time MDS (bone marrow cancer).  He had a stem cell transplant this Jan.  He has had complications but fights on.  He is my hero.  This entry makes me want to cry.

First of all, I send my prayers and well wishes to Krissy's husband.  He can never quit - and it is important for him to FIGHT ON!  God bless him - you know, I don't think it is the hand that you are dealt in life, I firmly believe it is the way you perceive that hand!!!!  A positive ATTITUDE is eveything - My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with all of you that are fighting the good fight - I survived breast cancer and I made it the most positive experience of my life. Now I am dedicated to helping others in any and all ways that I can.  Be well.
