You'll Never Walk Alone

I have had a rough couple of days.  I'm not sure if I'm just hormonal or if the chemo drugs are taking their toll on me.  One way or the other, I have felt very discouraged both today and yesterday.  I am having troubles staying positive.  I am doubting my ability to get through the next 6 months of treatment.  It's on days like today where I need a nice positive reinforcement.  I was going through my emails and almost missed one from a friend of mine from University.  She sent a message of encouragement, but more than that, she shared with me some of her soul.  She is an Opera singer and has the voice of an angel.  She attached a couple of songs for me to listen to.  One of them was "You'll Never Walk Alone".  This song brings so many memories to me.  Memories of my youth, of discovering my own voice.  Memories of two of my dearest friends on their wedding day in Ireland.  Memories of hope and inspiration.  It was the perfect reminder on a day like today to hold my head up high because I do not walk alone.  I will NEVER walk alone.

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark

At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of the lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
