The day was one crisis after another. In the eyes of almost everyone, I was on their "personal bark list." From prosecutors to law enforcement and all those in between by 9:00 a.m. I wanted to call it a day, go back to bed until the following morning and start fresh with a clean slate. But I could not. It was also radio day at the Zeus studio's and I had my Thursday two hour show to do. I sucked it up the best I could putting a smile on my face and forged ahead. The day did not get better.
Exhausted and feeling a self defeating pity party coming on with me, myself and I, clouding over on the day seemed all but lost. After checking my emails I headed over to face book. A woman by the name of Robin Smith left me this comment " I just wanted to say that this picture of you is beautiful. I hope you are having an awesome week." How thoughtful of her, I said to myself.
Then towards the bottom of her face book page is this:
"As some of you know, I have had 7 cancer surgeries, but God has been right with me. On 5/16/11 my doctor did a physical and found a tiny spot. I refused the biopsy until I have completed the Trail of Hopes for St Jude. I do not have time to be down for any length of time. So please join our event and prayers are always welcome."
