I am very fortunate to be one of five sisters. I am especially blessed that two of these sisters, Sherry and Juana, live close by. They have been an integral part of my support team. Although sister Lynette lives in Florida, she was able to come visit with me soon after my diagnosis, and I enjoyed an awesome stay with her in January. However, sister Lessy lives in a land far, far away (Calgary), and I had not seen her in nearly two years. It is never easy to be away from your family, and this becomes even more true when you are facing cancer.
Last week, I got the surprise of my life when she unexpectedly strolled into my kitchen! Normally when Lessy comes to visit, I see very little of her, since she has so many other relatives and friends to see. But this time, she devoted her entire visit to spending time with me and transporting me to my medical appointments. What an unexpected and delightful perk! As an added bonus, Lessy is in to various alternative healing modalities, such as Reiki, so I took advantage of a few freebies. My aura has never been cleaner and my chakras are completely balanced.
Tip: It is ok to take advantage of your siblings when you have cancer, that is what they are there for. (Besides, you would do the same for them.)
