Ady & Bekah Hauert’s Blog
I was reading a book tonight and the first few sentences that I read said, “Rehearsing your troubles results in experiencing them many times, whereas you are meant to go through them only when they actually occur.” This was written by a lady named Sarah Young.
WOW! What a way to look at worrying. As I’m sure you can imagine and have gathered from my previous blogs, I tend to struggle with worrying. I mean really, who doesn’t? I feel like there were a lot of things to worry about before my child was diagnosed with cancer. I think everyone has their share of worries…the occasional unplanned bill whether it be doctor, hospital, taxes, house or car issues. Or what about the worry that your kid might not “fit” in at school, or that they aren’t going to make that certain sports team you always wanted them to be on, or play that certain instrument you always dreamed of them playing because you were never able to as a child? Then it comes to that true worry that there is honestly no way of controlling, you can’t bribe your child into doing it or making this worry go away, you can’t make sure they get included when the neighbor kids are playing, and you can’t even control it with all the money in the world. I’m sure you’re catching on to what I’m getting at here. It’s that worry that comes with having a sick child, and not just “my kid has the flu,” but a terminally sick child. Let the worry overpower you! You have no way of controlling it. You worry first of all if they are going to live to see another year or even month, but also in between all that, you worry about everything else that comes along with the fight. You worry about how you are financially going to handle this, you worry about how a sibling is going to handle this, and most importantly you wonder how that precious little child that you had such HUGE hopes and dreams for in life is going to make it through this when a lot of “big” people don’t even survive. This is only such a small part of what the fight of childhood cancer involves, but with your help and everyone out there, hopefully there will be a day when that worry of whether or not YOUR child is going to have to fight this terrible fight will be out of the minds of us all. What an amazing day that will be!
