We’re all family

Recently my husband and I spent part of an afternoon in the oncology center. I read for a bit while he was receiving his IV’s, then took a break from my magazine to look around the room. I watched people as they came through the waiting area to receive treatment, and I witnessed their initial and ending interactions with the nurses there. What started as a momentary distraction for me turned into a fascinating witness of courage, kindness, and hope abounding in the people there. All of us were different, but we all shared the commonality of life with cancer. Then I thought about our upcoming Rainbow of Hope, and how it too, brings many in our community together in wonderful ways. Everybody knows why they support it, and understands why others come too. I love the fact that there are no “visitors” in our church for this event. We’re all family.
