Witty Words of Catharine
I mentioned before that she is really quite funny and comes up with these sayings and I am like "Where did you ever hear that"???? So today's witty words went like this:
I notice she has makeup on the side of her face by her eyes that didn't get blended in too well - so I let her know to rub it in - she says its there cuz they look like two burnt holes in a blanket!!
LOL!!!!!!!!! Who says that?????? OMG she is so funny!
Today was a great day on all levels - her labs look good so she got the full spectrum of drugs!! Always a bitter sweet thing, because its those very drugs that are destroying her heart but necessary to kill the cancer.
It was also good because she gets time to release all that she is holding in. She is a die hard stuffer through and through and its a blessing to me to be that non-judgemental sounding board she needs to just let it all go....I can always see her face change by the time we are done talking, wrinkles literally fade, eyes brighten, smiles come easily......
She has a very difficult home situation one I have never gone into and it really is neither here nor there, what does matter is that she find strength, comfort and peace in the way things are and stop poisioning her body with stress and anger.
She said she got so upset yesterday she took her baked potatoe and threw it against the wall............I totally busted up laughing visualizing this act - and said boy that must have been FUN!!!!!!!!!! In a second she forgave herself, felt the humor in it, and realized its just not a big deal! She laughed too and said HECK YEAH IT WAS - as we were talking she went to put her glasses on and they were FILTHY, she saw it too, and I said "Looks like you got a bit of potatoe smeared on there girl" - she laughed really hard, almost to tears, and said thank you for helping me laugh at myself, to not take things so seriously and feel like I am just a normal person - like everyone else.
I am truly blessed ~ my gratitude is overflowing.
I wanted to update as well - the women who was having a heart attack I wrote about last week is OK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so incredibly relieved to hear that!!!
