Have you ever heard it said that love cures? I heard someone say that love cures those who give it and it cures those who receive it. I’m not sure I believe it but a friend of mine who is battling cancer told me that this is what helped her through the challenges of her illness. She said love is no mystery, but its results are magical in many ways. It’s generally accepted by many people that a lot of illnesses are psychosomatic. Many of us often feel anxiously alone, abandoned, lonely, fearful, and unloved. As a result of these feelings we often express our need through our bodies. It is so sad that so many of us are so hindered. We have the power to change that if we are willing participants in a solution. The action one must take to achieve this is simple. The only requirement is the decision to act with favor toward one another. Try using your eyes and give a struggling person a loving look offering him or her the strength to try and try again and thus succeed with whatever their challenge may be. With no more effort than a genuinely warm glance, you can change the course of history today, tomorrow, always. She told me that she was so sick and was losing her will to live until two of her friends nursed her back to health. She said it was their love that nursed her back and she is now on the road to recovery.
She bought them Cancer Bracelets to show her gratitude for all the love they showered upon her. “What Cancer Cannot Do: corrode faith, shatter hope, destroy peace, silence courage, invade the soul, steal eternal life, conquer the spirit, cripple love, kill friendship, suppress memories.”
