A Wonderful WordlessWednesday to all my blogging buddies out there! Natasha, a dear friend and my amazing co-host has very kindly consented to host this week’s Blog Hop on my behalf, even though she is on a break and I cannot thank her enough for keeping our weekly linky party going, especially after our best ever record last week (we had 24 linkups, can you believe it?) Thank you all for showing so much love by sharing your smashing posts. I was on cloud nine until the devastating news of Mom’s Biopsy report threw everything into a tizzy. She was detected with the big C this Monday and I’ve gone totally numb with shock ever since, simply unable to process it. Shock, anger, disbelief, worry and pain alternating, I didn’t know how to react. After a lot of struggle, I’ve had to remind myself that this is the time to be strong. I have to be rock-solid. As a daughter, I cannot let her down. I must pull myself up and be strong for her, for the rest of the family and for myself. It is hard, to say the least, and every moment right now, is a struggle for me, but hope keeps me going. Hope keeps us going as a family.
I’ve been deliberating on whether to post or not, this week, in the light of my current situation but decided to go ahead with it anyhow, because I need your moral support and your prayers for our mom who is about to undergo a critical surgery tomorrow. We desperately need your prayers, dear friends, and we need you to keep our Mom in your thoughts and hold her in light for the coming days.
This week’s image of a Ferris wheel ride in Cape Town puts my week into perspective. It is so ironic, you know, that just a few days back, things were going good and I thought I was at the top, riding the crest and life was getting back to normal after the rough last two months, and now, as I type this, you know we’re not far from hitting the bottom, once again. But, that’s life. Staying hopeful is the only way forward.
All we can do right now is stay in our seats, and hang on, until hopefully, we reach the top again. Until then, please keep Mom in your prayers, dear friends.
P.S. I have been caught up with too many things so pardon my delay in responding to your comments to our previous week’s linkups. I will, I promise, stop by each one of your posts and comment as soon as I can find that little window of opportunity. Until then, please do bear with me!
New to #WordlessWednesday but would like to participate? Well, here’s how you can join Natasha and me. Just follow our three easy steps:
- Post a picture on your blog that speaks for itself. It could be from your adventures, experiments, life’s quirky moments, travels or just plain random shots. Or absolutely anything that stoked your being. Or made you think.
