Faith Over Fear!
Love to all,
‘Twas The Day Before Chemo
‘Twas the day before chemo, and all through our minds,
We wondered and wondered what answers the doctors would find.
Team Fouch knows that prayers and thoughts are coming from those that care,
They know that all that are supporting them will continue to be there.
The day is filled with activities and distractions good for our heads,
We know the "Coach" above will lead us, “It’s Game Time” is what is said!
Matt continues to be determined to finish the next lap,
And will not let anyone slow him down with what they found on some app.
When we look ahead to the future, we smile and start our game time chatter,
Our love and faith will hold us close together while dealing with this matter
Cancer came into our lives unwanted and in such a flash,
But we have faith we’ll beat it, and throw it out like trash!
Each day is a gift like new fallen snow,
Embracing those you love is so important we know.
We know in our time of need something wonderful always seems to appear,
Love, good thoughts,faith and blessings to chase away our fear.
On July 18, we learned life can move so quick,
It gave us permission to slow down, and enjoy it a bit.
Our lives may have changed, never to be the same,
But if we waste time being sad and angry, that would be a shame.
Tonight when we try to lay down our hearts and our heads,
We reflect on all the encouraging words that have been said.
Tomorrow Matt will be dressed in his orange chemo shoes,
Pumping his fists refusing to lose.
The cancer center staff will do all that they should
Working to make a scary situation feel “sorta” good.
The oncology nurses and doctors will give him such care,
Knowing that having cancer just is awful and is not fair.
Matt will take his treatment like other chemo days
Knowing that trusting in God will help him be okay.
After sitting so brave for several hours again,
We will leave for home with a feeling of a win!
Now, fans, supporters, family, friends and more
Our coach and leader has a great plan in store.
To the end of the field, another touchdown in sight,
We can hear your cheers, continue to cheer with all your might.
So back up we rise to show cancer a thing or two,
We will continue to pray this whole game through.
We want a win is what we yell from the roof,
Matt’s strength and courage will be our proof.
I know one thing for sure and that’s what I ask God every night,
Please keep Matt close to you and give him the strength to win this fight!
Today is Thanksgiving! A day set aside to reflect and give thanks to all we have in our lives. A day to see a bigger picture, a day to count blessings, a day "Team Fouch" is embracing this year. This year feels somewhat different than Thanksgivings past. Today is a true gift, a day to be grateful for the game we are playing. You may question "Thankful for Cancer?" Cancer isn't something to be grateful for, but that is only part of the story. The night we found out, we didn't know what the future would hold, we never dreamed the amount of love, support and prayers that would keep up playing the game of a lifetime. To be honest we hadn't even come close to realizing all that we had in our lives. We often asked for more, never fully showing true gratitude for all the blessings we already had in our life. Learning that we were going to fight cancer and play an opponent so evil really opened our hearts and allowed us to see and feel what true gratitude should be. We find that the small things we assumed would always remain the same are worthy of attention and gratitude. We find that we are slowing down to in order to give thanks, pray and use faith to keep us in this game. We find that we share more openly our emotions and express our deepest gratitude for knowing one another's fears, hopes, love and dreams. I find that we show gratitude to our Coach leading us to victory, our team and our supporters. This gratitude doesn't come in the form of gifts, phone calls, texts or thank you cards. (I don't even know where to begin with that) Rather we give thanks by praying for all of you. We hope that you will feel happiness, health and the love we feel every yard we gain towards a win. We wish you a wonderful day of giving thanks with your family or friends. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Love To All,
