Sooner or Later, I'm gonna make it...

Today is the day of:

Waking up to pain ripping through my stomach

Throwing up Breakfast

Doing school while hooked up, attempting to fight off the nausea that's rising

Watching the Food Network and reading My sister's keeper in an attempt to ignore the shock, and the humbling sense of reality, brought up by this morning's incident

The smell of medical tape still clinging to my skin, despite my attempts to wash it away

Cold feet, and headaches, and heartaches

Sunshine streaming in the bedroom window

Spanish Vocab, and Math Questions, and English Essays

Getting a message from a friend today, a whispered reminder that sooner or later, I AM going to make it. We ARE going to find out what this is and I AM going to feel better. Though it won't be today, it will be someday.

I am Hoping with a fragile Hope

Oh, dear Alisha, you are such a follower! I know you have already inspired me...even before I knew about your illness. I think myself privileged to follow the blog of such a lovely young lady who loves the LORD and desires to serve Him. Plus you are a good writer.

You are in my prayers tonight.


Jeremiah 29:11-13
