Blessed Amidst a Curse

I'll try to tone down the deep reflection, but I am blown away by how such a horrific diagnosis is paving way for new opportunities in the thick of the storm. Tonight I will be sharing my journey of Faith, Football and Cancer with the Michigan Football team. All of this while I am on chemo heading into a stem cell transplant...craziness...

Those who follow college football know that my Wolverines have been on a very challenging journey as well. There is so much we can all learn in our darkest moments whether a loss to Appalachian State or a cancer diagnosis. Sometimes the forest needs to burn a little longer so a new forest can be raised from the ashes.

I don't know how 2010 is going to unfold for my personal health, nor the health of my beloved football program, but I think we all need to keep the faith and continue to trust.

I'll be praying for you to say exactly the words your listeners need to hear. Fear not: God will be with you!

You're a Michigan man through a through and will find just the words to keep them fighting like hell both on and off the field. Go Blue!

I took my myeloma as an opportunity to look at crafting for a living and chatting to strangers something I would never have done in the past because I'm a little shy but what the heck. But occassionally I get the weirdest feeling, generally when I've just laughed so hard I have a coughing fit, that I shouldn't be so happy when I have cancer. And then I think well being sad doesn't cure it. Roobedoo pointed your blog out to me and it's good to see you smiling too!
