I came out of my hospital room to walk about and was feeling discouraged about my situation. Then I came across another patient walking about the hallway. We introduced ourselves and I asked him what he was in for. Lymphoma. He was here for his seventh stem cell transplant! And yet, he was in a very upbeat mood. He had his serviceman’s cap on to celebrate Memorial Day, and told me he was a high school science teacher prior to taking leave for treatment. He even mentioned how he writes a blog to his students every week to let them know how he is doing to encourage them.
We had a great walk together, and I told him about Phil’s Friends. After that visit I felt so encouraged! Seeing someone in a similar situation as I am and still, he was so positive through all of it! God places his angels in strange places sometimes, but He is always right on time!
