My sister has breast cancer and it has metastasized to her hip. I’m becoming aware of what is real, valuable, important. For me it’s using my God-given talent to support and uplift family, friends, and anyone else and accepting and basking in the love that is given.
This poem puts into words what I have found difficult to verbally express. When I read it I want to say, “Yes, yes.”

Is the snail
Is her foot
so it can’t
