Comfort

I just learned that at its root meaning, the verb 'comfort' means 'together strengthened.'

I think that may be one of the most beautiful definitions, word pictures, and discoveries. Ever.

Together strengthened. This is comfort.

The very definition softens my heart.

(I love words.)

I found your blog via a friend of mine who posted on her blog about your blog! ha!

My husband has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer stage IV. Your writing is inspiring and I find comfort in reading it. I find huge comfort in writing my own daily blogs as people follow our journey.

What a journey we are on, but at opposite ends now. What would I do without my loving God who carries me through this journey of many gifts called Cancer.

Blessings!
