At the beginning of this year, I am deciding to try something new. I am going to write poem’s to share with you.
In the hopes they will will help your or someone you love, who may joining this sisterhood and provide some inspired guidance from our father above.
The number one reason that I wrote: Dear Sister, Today Is…(my breast cancer memoir and book) was to share your pain, open my heart and let you look, inside of my head and see that breast cancer doesn’t have to be…the end, but the beginning of a sisterhood that could last for an eternity.
Poem to introduce Chapter One of Dear Sister, Today Is…
A firm foundation of faith can take years to build
It can only be accomplished through hard work by the skilled.
The security, joy and peace that it can bring
Will ease our pain and allow our hearts to openly sing.
All too often we wait to start building our faith,
Until we or someone we love is facing death.
Then we begin to search, bargain, beg and pray for it
With our every breath.
We begin to become acutely aware
That living, life and love
Are the most precious gifts than can be given to us
By our eternal God above.
Sisters, family and friends are a wonderful core,
Especially when they love us and never keep score,
Of all of the bad things that we may have said and done
And make time to be there for us and thoroughly have fun!
This untangles a few of the mysteries of…
what you will find in Dear Sister, Today Is…Chapter One.
If you are inspired by the poem that you just read,
And you will have fewer things to dread.
Enjoy your day!
