a note from John..lokutus-prime

Yesterday morning, John..lokutus-prime wrote this note, as a comment on my poem "fragile". I wrote it on Sunday, the day before my husband had his second cancer surgery at a hospital over a hundred miles from Home. John's encouraging words meant the world to me, and I asked him if I could share them here, in A Feature Spot, as a Guest Blogger. He graciously agreed. From John..lokutus-prime…

Dear Janean,
Your poem, your thoughts and feelings, is profoundly moving

Here in your words
is your shield and protection.

Here, in your words
are the roots of strong faith.

Here in your words
is the lamp of bright hope.

Here in your words
is the strength of you.

You are a wonderful
and remarkable
courageous and loving
wife and mother.

Your journey has been, still is, a hard one.
Only you and your beloved ones
know what you are all going through;
but many others feel for you deeply.
In my humble words
penned from a far distance
I send you all the strength I can place
into the prayers I say for you and family

– Very much love to you and yours,
beloved friend, Janean.

John…

I replied to John's comment with, "Oh, John. Wow. And Thank you. Now I'm the one with tears in my eyes, and a grin on my face, from reading your wonderful words. A poem letter for me, from you, for the courage and strength I need for today. And many days to come. From across an ocean they touch my heart. What a gift. Thank you.

With your permission, Dear Friend, I'd like to repost your comment as a Guest Blogger, here at Turquoise Tangles. They are a gift I needed today and would like to share outside the comments here. I'll link back to your blog as well. Let me know. I'm here all day. Hanging out online, while sitting bedside, by the man I love. ~ Janean"

John accepted saying, "It's I who thank YOU, Janean. You are a source of courage and inspiration to me and I am sure to many others. I'm happy for you to repost my poem letter in the way and at the place you mention. Thank you, Dear Friend.

I'm humbly glad to know that you are comforted. You are a most remarkable and truly wonderful person… and that is so evident, shines out, in your journal, from the day you first published your thoughts.

Here, from my side of the Atlantic ocean, I send you my continual prayers and hopes."

    I am so humbled by your words, John. Of course, however you'd like to share your words, or our blended words, is A. O.K. with me. So many lives are touched by cancer, as it strikes often, in unexpected places, and in way too many people, of all ages. My husband being diagnosed at age 40, was young, but there are children, teenagers and younger adults than 40, fighting it too, in all forms. This is the post that details how my husband's colorectal cancer was found:http://my.opera.com/jbaird/blog/2011/06/03/too-young-for-thisThank you again for your encouraging words, and for agreeing to be a Guest Blogger at Turquoise Tangles. ~ Janean
