A day without radiation should be a great day, but I confess it was a day of noodle legs and exhaustion! I did a lot of just laying and sitting around hardly able to move. My Melia Kawena did teach me how to knit—which I am still practicing. Thanks to Mom Kau for the great knitting books that Kawena and I enjoyed going through and planning projects. My knitting stitches are really bad so far–but I will press on.
Very fun to have my sisters Michele, Colette and their families here. I appreciate them coming from so far.
Thanks to the Agle family for providing the pool for my nightly physical therapy, and they’ve let lots of cousins swim too.
I wanted a little exercise and was over picking Catie Freedman’s garden of beans and peas, and I was down and not able to get up when Tammy Runia came to my rescue and helped pull me up!! Tammy also left me with this great quote. “There is a point where a girl becomes a woman, a point when a woman becomes a female warrior, when her life is no longer a game…but is a genuine battle. Not to survive only, but to survive and be strong.” I will be STRONG!!
Here’s a great scripture Mary Dimond gave me. “And whoso receiveth you, there will I be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you to bear you up.” D&C 84:88 My own legs may be failing right now, but the Lord is on both my sides through the angels I find all around me. Thank you for lifting me — virtually up off the ground, and for spiritually lifting me up. Love to all of you…..Melanie
