Not Just Another Thanksgiving Wish

Updated on November 20, 2018

Patricia is a mother, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter, whose passion is writing about what she feels and experiences.

Little Man ( Heston Wayne) with Nini

It cannot be almost the end of November this quickly!! It seems a minute ago I was saying "Happy New Year"---wishing everyone many wonderful experiences in the days ahead. And now it is time already to share wishes for each of you and all of my family and friends a most blessed and lovely Thanksgiving time.

Outward appearances can be so deceiving

  • Just yesterday a friend of mine said "Oh, Stef looks so good." I can't tell you how many times we've heard that over the years. The words feel like a knife in my chest for they belie the truth. The hard part that's really confusing about the whole thing is my daughter has terminal cancer. Many of you have read of her journey here on Hubpages. Just one of the Insidious things about cancer is that you don't really reflect how you are physically by the way you look on the outside. There are times when you do but for 18 years, pretty much, you haven't been able to tell that my daughter is sick.

A Diagnosis

About 18 years ago my daughter Stephanie was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. A few years later she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent extensive horrid chemo and radiation to try to eradicate both of these cancers. However it only served to slow down the progression a bit but did not eradicate it.

Momma and Baby

The photo above was taken about 3 months ago. Stef's hair had just grown in a bit after 6 weeks of very nasty chemo. Her hair is almost white as it grows in. Sadly it caused no diminishing of tumors now present in many areas of her body. But she keeps on keeping on for her Heston Wayne and her Jay, both who are ill.

Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.

Learning Curve

What have we learned by having all of this illness in our family? We have learned quite a bit as a matter of fact. One of the first things we've learned is that we are not alone. There are more families than I care to count across this amazing land that have the same kind of journey we are having. So I guess one of the things we've learned--- one of the biggest things that we've learned--- is that no family knows when this will happen. Our wish is that this never happens to another family. It is an experience that no one should have to endure. It can tear families apart. In our case thankfully we have been drawn closer together. We are there for each other no matter what time of the day, any day, or night.

I am thankful for every moment.

— Al Green

Near the beginning of this article, I shared with you that the doctor had given Stef a new time line as to how long she had left on the planet. The timeline was 6 months to a year. We're at the six month mark now and praying for many more, months, years even ahead. She was just called by her oncologist earlier this week to be told that she has new tumors in new areas of her body. I don't think she was surprised because she's in a lot of pain now. It's beyond my small ability to comprehend how she could possibly have anywhere else that has not been invaded by this horrible disease. You may wonder how she's able to conduct swapping events for her son when she's in so much pain. I think it's therapy for her. I think it's a big reason why she still on the planet. So many times I've said it and I'll keep on saying it---she refuses to give up and give in.

Continuing our wish

So again our wish is that no family have to travel this road. And we are so very thankful that all of us will be sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner together again this year. We have been told so many times over the years but that might not be possible. So "thankful" doesn't even begin to describe how we feel this year.

Thankful

My own personal wish is one that I have never wanted to voice. And that is I don't want her to suffer. As I mentioned above she's in a lot of pain now. Hopefully it will diminish and she'll have another rebound and she'll live on and on like she has done. But my wish as I say is that she not have to endure long grueling periods of pain. It is time to say " thank you" to all of you who have cared for my girl over the years and for my Heston and my Jay.

Sending many Happy Thanksgiving wishes to each one of you this most wondrous time of the year. Another thing we have learned is that everyday is Thanksgiving Day at our house. We've learned not to take for granted so many little things that it is easy to fall into the trap of doing. We talk on the phone and we text and we visit often often often. Being thankful it's not something we take for granted. Happy Thanksgiving once again to each of you and sending Angels and good wishes to your door.

      Hi Patricia,

      It is understandable that your free time is limited and responding to comments on HP would be way down your list because of what your family is experiencing. I pray that Steph's pain is lessened. It must be so hard to know that she is living with daily pain. Sending hugs and prayers your way.

      Oh! I can understand how you might be going through daily. My bestie's mom was told that she would live only three months but with God's grace and His breath, she had been living with cancer for six years now. Daily is a day for being thankful to Him and being able to be with the loved ones. I too pray for healing and strength, hope and comfort into your family as well . May God bless you this year!

      As I have stated in the comments to most everyone...I hope I did not neglect to say it to all....I am so appreciative of the kind words and good thoughts and blessings you send. It is a journey that we would never have dreamed we would embark on but we are trying to take it one day at a time and squeeze every bit of goodness out of each interaction.

      Wishing the very best to you and yours. Angels are once again headed your way ps

      Again I must apologize for the long delay in responding. so much has happened since I was here that I barely have time to come on and respond. Thank you first of all for caring and sharing your heartfelt words. So many have used that exact term "Superwoman" to describe Stef. She has an inner strength that keeps her going. I just updated an article Hope Just Ahead this morning that tells more of her journey. Wishing you a blessed remainder of 2018 and an amazing 2019. Angels are headed your way ps

      I am so uplifted by the kind words that come to me and my family as I share this journey with others. My hope by sharing is that others who are walking a similar walk may find some sense of peace and comfort in knowing that they are not alone and that much of what they experience and feel is shared by others. Sending you many Angels and much appreciation...it is comforting to know we are not alone. ps

      Hello Patricia! I'm sorry I'm so late to this one.

      I admire you and your family so much for the amazing courage and determination you all show. That in itself is a lesson to us all. I hope you had a wonderful family Thanksgiving and that Stef has more quality time with you. It never ceases to amaze me what a person's state of mind can achieve. You have a family of fighters and that is good.

      My love and best wishes to all of you. You are all angels, to my mind.

      Thanksgiving should be an everyday event. I know that it is for you as you take each day and each moment and squeeze all the good possible out of it.

      I am so saddened to know that your lovely daughter is now experiencing so much pain. Hopefully, Stef will be able to enjoy this Thanksgiving with her entire family and those memories will be able to be cherished in the days to come.

      My heart goes out to you. Sending prayers and best wishes to you and your entire family.

      Pat, I'm sitting here in chemo and just had time to read this article. Inspiring, as is all that you write. My journey is quite different than that of Steph, Heston Wayne, and Jay...a comparative cake walk. You all give me the courage I need to fight this fight. When I get some bad news, my thoughts turn to you folks and I realize, "this is nothing."

      Your strength is contagious, and I wonder how many people with cancer, worldwide, you are strengthening.

      I don't need to wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving because you've already indicated that it will be. Bask in each other's company and let the kids know that I'll be hoisting some extra cranberry sauce and stuffing in their honor! God Bless!!

Our face is strong and we believe that no matter what comes our way we're going to navigate those Waters. Thank you for the good wishes and know that many angels are headed your way this morning.

      And thankfully their predictions have been wrong many times. Thank you for your kind words and please know that you are thought of often and prayed for daily. Angels are on the way this evening.ps

      I pray for you all and a miracle so big it touches all of you. In Jesus name who realy loves everyone of you, I pray. Amen.

      You have so many friends here that love you, too. I am sure you already know that. Be blessed.

      A wonderful wish my friend. As a note, when I was going through chemo on my first go 'round with cancer and chemo I looked like hell. Maybe a kind of good thing as I look back. No one ever asked me how I was doing or said I looked good.

      With this new round I actually am still looking OK. Those darned predictions from doctors about longevity. They are going to have to change mine again, Thank God.

      I see the suffering your family is going through and it breaks my heart. But I see how warm, hopeful and loving you are and I wish that all dealing with this could be inspired by it like I.

      Thank you for sharing your update and wishes.

      Hi PS, You could not wish for anything more touching than this to read on Thanksgiving. True, we don't celebrate it here in Australia but I enjoy reading about it and what it means to American families like your own. Many of us take things for granted, and reading what your family is going through and that you can still find positives, give thanks, and spread love is an inspiration. All the best to you and your family, especially Stef and Heston Wayne.
