Seriously, I Need to Leave These Internets Alone!

I have always been attracted the Internet and all the information out here. Plus, as my sister says I am nosey! True. She calls me the Internet Crawler. If you need to know something, I can find it on the Internet.

Lately, I have just been discovering different blogs and just reading what folks are putting out there in the atmosphere. And the reason for this post is that I just got through crying like a damn baby because of my insatiable need to be nosey.

I was on Chocolate Brides, and my goodness they posted a video of a couple. The title of the video was I think the Ultimate Love Story. Don't quote me, but anyway the groom has stage 4 stomach cancer and it has spread to his esophagus. There video is so touching and no words I can come up with will be able to convey the beauty of their story. They have to be the strongest folks I have seen in a long time. Even if I tried to put myself in their place I don't know if I could display so much strength considering the obstacles and the uncertainty they face. Pray for them.

Another blogger, I want put her blog down here, but she has stage 3 cancer and she is blogging from her hospital bed. I go to her spot every couple days to see if she is alright. She is a 20 something young lady and this is her 2nd bout with cancer. Her family is going through it as well. Her father gave a portion of his lungs and days after the incident he had a major heart attack and it was touch and go for a minute, but he is still recovering. He is a doctor as well. She lost her grandmother shortly after her grandfather died. And now, her mother has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. I feel this young woman's pain as she tried to chronicle her situation of helping others. How she does it is beyond me. I find myself crying just reading the entries. She is trying to deal with pain and all the medical issues that continue to come up as she lays in a hospital bed where she can have no visitors. I hurt for her and I pray for her and her family. Hell, I wrote about her in my journal. Why? Because she is a reminder of what Faith can do and that no matter how many FML moments I have, there is always someone going through way more.

I just wanted to spotlight these two blogs and say have a great weekend because life is too short not to enjoy what life has to offer.

I promise to comeback lighthearted next time!

Internet Crawler (smile), thank you for sharing. Hearing stories like these is very humbling and a reminder of how blessed we really are. How dare many of us complain over things that in end really doesn't matter. I love reading your posts and admire your sisterlocks!

Well thank you Denise. I had to start black blogging more often and not just about my boring hair. I do plan a post that is not so dark next time. Thanks for stopping by and reading my antics. Thanks for the compliment on my hair, too.
