Stupid cancer

I don't feel very creative or inspired tonight, but I read this recently and it rang true with me.  I hope you can appreciate it :)  Author is unknown as far as I can find, but if there is someone I should be crediting please let me know... Of course, I took the liberty of adding my own two cents at the end.

What Cancer Cannot Do
Author: Unknown

Cancer is so limited...
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the Spirit.

It cannot take away my Ty's bright smile. 
It cannot take away the number of hearts he has touched. 
Stupid cancer.  Back off and leave him alone.


  1. Love Ty's smile, he looks so happy!

    Hoping y'all have a great week,

  2. My God that boy is BEAUTIFUL!!!! His smile lights up my heart. Hope he is feeling better every minute.

    All my love,

  3. I love his little smile. Keep fighting little man.

  4. Stupid cancer indeed!
    Ty really does have the greatest smile. I agree with Elaine...Ty really is BEAUTIFUL and his smile can lights up anyones heart. I'm praying that he gets a little stronger everyday! Before you know it you'll be posting videos of him riding a Big Wheel and playing tag with Gavin.
    My love to you all!

  5. I keep this close and helped when my own son had cancer...I am not overwhelmingly religous but it still gives me strength.....

    God hath not promised skies always blue
    Flower strewn pathways, all our lives through;
    God hath not promised sun without rain,
    Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.

    But God hath promised strength for the day,
    Rest for the labour, light for the way,
    Grace for the trials, help from above,
    Unfailing kindness, undying love.

  6. Thank you, Ilovesissy. That is beautiful.
