Dear Lord, You have given me the answer to so many
problems, through your angels I felt you caress and cradle me.
With all that life had to offer
this cancer is just another hurdle I can see.
I have felt your strength through the many prayers.
I thank you for always being there.
The end looks close in sight
hopefully the treatment will be just right.
I do want to mention that
the Father General was a terrific surprise.
I felt so honored that before returning to Rome,
he stopped to tell us goodbye.
His presence in our home gave me a boost to my heart.
He has always been one of your special priests from the start.
He certainly made my burden light.
Suddenly I knew everything would be alright.
The special surprises that you sent
in the form of great-grandchildren was a great delight.
Thank you again, Lord
