The journey is the destination.

One of my two friend with breast cancer just had a test that showed the cancer is in one 12 mm lump and there is no lymph node involvement. This means perhaps just a lumpectomy and a small amount of radiation, the best result of all the scenarios they had been given!  They’ll know more after surgeon’s visit’s this week. I am thrilled for her but feel almost guilty for celebrating for her when my other friend faces the possibility of major surgery, radiation and chemo. What I feel is really not relevant, however, I will celebrate with the friend who celebrates and my heart will still be broken for the friend who mourns and tremors with fear.  It is their journey and I can only walk beside them on it. I cannot change it for them. And, as we know, the journey is often the destination .
