It is not easy living with someone who is living with cancer.
Forget all the other obvious issues, someone with cancer is NOT reliable.
I might have all the best intentions in the world, but if I am too tired, I am just not going to do what I said I would do.
Quite honestly, I am often "too tired."
I make a committment to take care of something, or clean something up and then, boom, I am too tired and my committment just flies out of the window.
I apologize. And I really am sorry. But, I just cannot do what I promised I would do.
My husband, or child, either understands... or not. (Thank God, my family usually understands.)
But it is not easy.
And there is no way to be certain that I will do it tomorrow... even if I promise to do my very best.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
Gaza and Shabbat
