You read an earlier post that featured the Warrior bracelet I received from my cousin April. https://lindaedwardswriter.wordpress.com/2018/12/13/support-group/
She lives in another state and surprised me by sending an inspiring piece of jewelry that has become my daily wear for this journey. I’ve since come to learn I’m not the only one. My daughter. My sister. My brother. My mom. The bracelet keeps turning up.
Some are wearing it on their wrist. Some in their heart.
My tribe starts with my family and extends to friends, neighbors, church members, and coworkers. I know they have my back, just as I have had theirs. They’ve been with me since the beginning of this journey. Researching when I was waiting for test results. Praying. Helping me find a wig. Sending cards and texts. Chauffeuring and keeping me company at chemo. Checking in.
I have struggled with parts of this journey. But I am not alone.
And for that, I am grateful.
