I made a new friend today.  She's read my poetry, wants help with her own.  I LOVE
making a new friend.

I completely love life because it gives us so many curves, SUCH surprises, so much apprecitation when we least expect it.  

I also love you all
  

The stars will shine when I am gone,
the earth will turn on as before,
the gulls, still race along the shore,
the morning star, still kiss the dawn

Smiling, Auguste.  This is good news.
We should never be too old that we can't
make new friends, or learn something we
didn't know...

She will do well under your tutelage.

How do we handle fear, the unknown, the possible loss of a father to his son?  The odds are stacked against me now, as you well know.  

My only child, my son, the only thing I've done right in my life needs me now, but his fear of losing me frightens me more than anyting, the tumors, the illness, the losing of weight and not being able to eat, the Chemo, ANYTHING!  

I try to be brave when I speak with him, but he's SO scared.  That fear makes me only want to fight all the more, because he doesn't want to lose his daddy, his best friend.  Any of us going through this needs a reason to fight.  I'm fighting for my only child, my very heart!

My son, Chris, is brave.  I spoke with him tonight about smoking, drugs, addictive things, as I've done so many times, warning him of the dangers.  I hope and pray to God that he doesn't follow my foolishness.  Any of you would find him SO precious, caring, feeling, sensitive.  He will make a great husband one day for the girl he chooses.  I want to be there for him in the future, but it's likely that I won't be.  You can't begin to imagine the pain that gives me.  My heart has always beat with his own.  He's my best friend, the best thing that ever happened to me.  I dearly hope that I won't be the best thing that ever happened to him, because he needs SO much more!

I continue to fight, never doubt that, but I'm likely going to lose this battle, according to the doctors.  However, I feel that Jesus will intervene and rescue my life, because my family needs me, Chris needs me, my friends need me.  I'm not giving up.  

Michael

You're fighting valiantly, Michael... How can you fight harder?  Write to him.  Write him some memoirs... Keep a journal - Give him your wisdom in print. Give him something  he can have to cherish, and perhaps to share with his own children... You can do this, Sir...

Dear Michael,
I agree with Nan...give him your writings and wisdom in print - imagine what a treasure the content of your website is to him.  With that kind of connection he will always know and love you, as you know and love him.  Include the messages you have shared with us.  He will know your loving spirit.

You have such courage and strength, Michael.  You're in my thoughts and prayers always.   ~K~
