Today I got a call from my oldest friend. She's a nurse. I'd been wanting to call and let her know about my diagnosis, but we haven't talked in about a year, and I felt a litle awkward. But since she moved to a distant part of the country, we'd always retained a connection, especially for some reason around New Year's, and so today she called me. Yay! She told me what's new with her - she's had an eventful year - and then I told her what's new with me.
But after I told her that it's benign, I forgot to say "Thank God. Isn't that great?"
Because benign, troublesome though it still may be, is GREAT.
Let me not forget that!
