My family and I live in Minneapolis Minnesota. This is a blog about my fight with Cancer. I hope to share about my experience with treatment, my life with my beautiful family, and this crazy adventure called life. Oh, and we love doughnuts!

An Ode To The Shower

In college I was ever so slightly addicted to showers. My freshman year I would take up to five showers a day. I would shower to wake up, after working out, after working, to fall asleep, and sometimes just to cool off on a hot night. So yeah, needless to say, I had a problem.

These days I start and end the day with a long soak. It's interesting how the same activity can get you going in the morning and then ready you for sleep at night. At the end of the day I take my Chemo pill and then stand below a steady stream of water. I reflect on the day, pray, sometimes cry, but mostly I just enjoy the quiet warmth.

That in mind I thought I should write a poem:

You wake me in the morning
Helping me start the day
Later on you get me snoring
Getting me ready for the next
You soothe and relax
Taking stress off my back
With your water, so warm and clear, that just keeps pouring

With all that said the next time you take a shower think of me!
