Three a Day Keeps the Blues Away: May 2nd, 2013
1. I GOT THE RESEARCH POSITION I INTERVIEWED FOR! I’m super excited because this means I get to learn how to run an EEG and all that kind of stuff. I’m really excited.
2. Got lunch with boyfriend and our other friend and sat on the steps outside at school and it was absolutely beautiful outside.
3. Boyfriend said that he forgives me. While I know that this is far from being over, it gave me a little faith that it’s going to be okay.
4. I asked God for a sign that it was going to be okay the other night and boyfriend told me that when he first realized I was lying, he went to church and the priest told a story about how forgiving for lying, cheating, stealing and all that is important and he said he realized he forgave me even though there was a lot to forgive. I took this as a sign that it was going to be okay all along, that maybe this is a bump in the road that will make us stronger. I’m not usually like this but it just… it made me feel a lot better about all of this. It’s going to be okay.
Dear Meg’s followers:
This is Meg’s friend and she may hate me for this but she needs all the support she can get right now. Tonight she made a mistake that she, luckily, realized was a mistake. I am with her in the hospital now and she is going to be okay.
Please, message her, contact her in any way possible and encourage her to keep living, to keep fighting. Remind her that she is loved. That she is worth the fight. Remind her of her beauty and strength and courage.
And Meg, when you read this, don’t hate me. I just love you too much to let you ever do this again.
It all happens for a reason.
This week has been the craziest week of my life. I feel like I’ve said that many times before, but keep reading, trust me, this one takes the cake.
Restoring my faith in humanity.
“I’m walking on sunshine, WOAH OH, I’m walking on sunshine WOAH OH, I’m walking on sunshine, OOHH. And don’t it feel GOOD, all right now!”
That’s what I heard in a squeaky little 8 year old’s voice this morning. Little Madison was running around, hooked up to her IV and singing Walking on Sunshine.
“Everyone here seems so sad, so I wanted to cheer them up!”
She sat in my room for a while and I played a game with her. I showed her a picture of my boyfriend on my phone and we looked at pictures of puppies together as she jumped up and down, giggling. She absolutely made my day.
Madison has cancer, and yet her positive attitude lives on. She made my day and restored my faith that things will get better.
Thanks Maddie, you’re absolutely amazing <3
