Love Letter to Life 03.05.2021 Primary Purpose

Dear Life, I painted this watercolor after doctor visit. Primary Colors. All colors are made from three: blue, yellow, red. My life is lived from this primary purpose: Stay sober, help others, and take loving care of myself. Love Life and Live. I told the MRI Tech a story: his MRI machine makes sounds like contemporary electronic music. You have to wear ear plugs for that, too. We laughed and he’s thinking of changing careers: DJ!

Love Letter to Life 03.04.2021 Inconclusive Results

Dear Life, PET Scan points to Slow B Cell Lymphoma in my shoulders and hips however not conclusive. Blood tests are perfect, contradicting scans. Chemo eliminated this cancer and Aggressive Large Cell last year. Next week, another radiologist reads scan/MRI. In three weeks, blood tests and possibly a bone marrow biopsy. Slow B Cell Lymphoma is chronic but manageable. I am assured there will be no chemo but oral medication to manage this, if needed. Welcome to the world of the “cancer club”. I have a great team of doctors and a “fellowship” of loving support. This morning while writing in bed, my Spirit made me laugh. I affirmed, “I am strong, wise, brave, sober and courageous EVEN AFTER I get out of bed!” So, here I go into the day, a Spiritual Warrior.

Love Letter to Life 03.03.2021 Spiritual Warrior

Dear Life, Today at 2:00 pm is blood work, oncologist and results of scan/MRI and tests. Every time I go into the hospital, Cancer Center, and doctor’s office, I go with faith. No matter what the circumstances, no matter the results, I know I am loved and given everything I need. Thank you for walking with me on this life’s journey.
I feeling a bit on pins and needles!
Yours Truly, Pamela Rose

Love Letter to Life 02.27.2021 Sisters Rule Full Moon

Dear Life, I received a gift box from Arlene containing a Full Moon card, a small plate and the Sister Journal she wrote in every day while I went through chemo treatments last year. I wrote a journal too and now am reading both journals along with the book, American Baby. My life is full with love, creativity and reading.

02.25.2021 What A Difference 24 Hours Make

This was written upon waking:
Raise my eyes up and look towards the horizon. See the sunshine. Watch the light change. Marvel at the beauty and splendor of a new day, seen for the first time, in a new way. Awesome lives here, within me, in every breath rising up in my lungs, exhaling out into a new world, inhaling another day to be lived in a new way. Always changing. Always inviting me. Always opening the door and welcoming me inside. Thank you.
