Yesterday I took a friend to what may be her last chemo session. Thanks in large part to modern medicine she has lived successfully for over six years with a diagnosis of ovarian cancer. The ‘healthy’ quality of life that she has experience has included a good appetite, the ability to drive and to travel, and the continued cultivation of many friendships. Good luck? Who knows?
All along she continued ‘to do the spiritual work’, or as Paul says, to keep the faith. That is not luck; that is grace.
