Today was the day to finally ring the bell, and I rang it loud and clear!
Folks joked about me being a professional bell ringer. I’ve rung church bells, school bells and jingle bells in the past, but few times with as much sense of joy and celebration.
Four of us from Hope Lodge – Butch, Robin, Kelly and I – finished up radiation this morning. There was a nice turnout of other patients who came in support, even though their treatments were much later.
Their presence at 7:30 a.m. spoke to us loudly about their care and concern.
Afterward, we shared lots of hugs, addresses and promises of prayer along the way.
