no need for apologies
no need to apologize. i certainly know that you were not saying what you did about dignity for any other reason than,like you said, to share another perspective to handling this disease.
i have buried a father, mother, grandmother,2 aunts, two uncles, three first cousins, and a husband, yet i have never experienced anything like this horrible disease. i wake up every morning and the first thing i do or even think is 'thank you lord for giving us another day. just show me how to serve you today.' i am so grateful that the lord gave me this wonderful man whom i have been married to for the past six years to love and to be loved by. and when this disease hit him, i promised myself that i would not ask God 'why', but i have since then asked God 'why' several times. i don't know what God's purpose is, but i do know there is one, and i thank all of you for reaching out to not only me, but to each other. together we will help each other.
