I've been thinking a lot about my mom's chemo journey. I'm proud of how she is dealing with the side effects and bumps in the road. I'm proud to be the daughter of Pam Seale, a warrior who clings to Jesus. Always.
This whole process is so hard to understand. We have never dealt with chemo in our immediate family.
We take medicine to get better. Quick. Antibiotics... expect a 24 hour turn around! Ibuprofen... relief in 25 minutes! But chemo is quite different. It's extremely taxing and damages the body for the sake of healing.
I've had a hard time wrapping my brain around it. So much suffering for what? Life. To be there for the next weddings, baptisms, graduations, and to enjoy them with your spouse. To love and to be loved.
Mom's fight is a gift to all of us. A gift of herself.
Thank you, Mom, for enduring this suffering and showing others the power of Grace, a gift you are freely accepting and is evident by your words and actions.
