I Have a Dream

Last night, I dreamt that my cancer had come back, in a strong way. During the course of the dream, my body was slowly being drained of its resources, slowly eaten away from the inside out by the cancer. The focus of the dream was not on the cancer, however. Instead, what I remember from the dream was being surrounded by friends and family, and not having fear as I slowly walked toward death. I knew where I was going, I knew it was just that my time had come, and I had the support of loved ones to hold me up, even as my body started to fail me. (In the dream, I think I finally managed to reach my appointed 180lb weight goal.)

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? I can only pray that when I finally face death for real, that I can have the same strength and confidence.
