Off To Sleep….

Dear Friends,

It’s nearly Nine O’Clock, which may not seem at all late to any of you, but it seems VERY late to me — so I’ve sent Paul out to post these thoughts while I get some sleep.

First of all, I truly believe that God has given me a very, very good day.  I have been constantly surrounded by love, and by prayer, and by faith.  What’s not to like?

Just now, Paul read to me for about ten minutes while we were in bed together and then we invited Liqa into the bedroom to join us in a prayer.

I prayed, dear friends, for you.  I’m praying that all of you wonderful people who care so much about me will be able to let go of any anxiety, and of any worry you feel on my behalf.  Let all your worries, and troubles, and doubts go.  Cast them away completely!  They won’t do you a bit of good and, frankly, I don’t want any part of them.  Can we make it a deal?  No worry — only love, and joy and gratitude.

Now, to sleep — I’ve got a cancer to fight!

Love You, Love You, Love You



About pamvbradford

I am a fifty seven year old banker specializing in government banking. I have a beautiful twenty-one year old daughter and a wonderful husband. My husband and I recently downsized, and purchased a beautiful condo in Watertown MA. We love our new home. I know I am a very fortunate person. I am surrounded by supportive family members, by supportive coworkers and by the marvelous support of our faith community at Sacred Heart Parish in Lexington MA. As the Psalm says, "There is nothing that I lack." My whole life changed on July 18, 2012 when I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The news came from out of the blue. My tumor was removed by the marvelous Dr. Mark Johnson and his wonderful team of surgeons at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. The surgery truly was a miracle. I couldn't possibly have gotten better care. Now the 'easy' part is over. The tough part is to learn to walk with God in the midst of danger and surprise. My mood shifts from gratitude to fear and back again but I know God has a purpose for me. There's a reason I didn't die on the operating table. There's something that God wants me to do. This blog is my effort to share with others, with all of you, what it is that I am learning as I put one foot ahead of the other, live each day as it comes, and discover what it is that God has to teach me. Your prayers keep me going. Your love comforts me. Your knowledge and faith guide and teach me. God bless you all!

      Thank you so much for your kind words; but thank you most of all for all you’ve done to help Harry be the kind of boss I can respect and admire. Kim, as long as you’re on my team I know we’re going to the finals so we can ‘take it all’.

      God Bless YOU!

        Thank you, Pam. We will ‘take it all’. I am sorry for the duplicate posts. I didn’t think the 1st post went through…you’ll have to bear with me…I can make the best cookies but stumble ungraciously using technology : )

      Leave to you to keep it in perspective. Wonderful words, and such a comfort. I had a feeling you’d be more worried about everyone else. But you have given us all “marching orders” . No anxiety and fear , just supporting you as you FIGHT THIS DAMNED CANCER.
      Love, Julie
