Count Your Blessings One By One

Everywhere Cancer appears to be on the increase, and when cancer begins, it produces few immediate symptoms. The signs and symptoms only appear as the mass or lumps grow or ulcerate.

The very moving song hereunder; (first released six years ago; in July 2011), tells the true story of a 38-year-old woman being supported by her husband, while battling breast cancer. The inspiration for this song was Lily Isaacs, a breast cancer survivor and mother of Sonya Isaacs, the songs co-author.

I’m Gonna Love You Through It.

(Written by Jimmy Yeary, Sonya Isaacs, Ben Hayslip.)

She dropped the phone and burst into tears
The doctor just confirmed her fears
Her husband held it in and held her tight
Cancer don’t discriminate or care if you’re just 38
With three kids who need you in their lives
He said, “I know that you’re afraid and I am, too
But you’ll never be alone, I promise you.”

When you’re weak, I’ll be strong
When you let go, I’ll hold on
When you need to cry, I swear
That I’ll be there to dry your eyes
When you feel lost and scared to death,
Like you can’t take one more step
Just take my hand, together we can do it
I’m gonna love you through it.

She made it through the surgery fine
They said they caught it just in time
But they had to take more than they planned
Now it’s forced smiles and baggy shirts
To hide what the cancer took from her
But she just wants to feel like a woman again
She said, “I don’t think I can do this anymore”
He took her in his arms and said
“That’s what my love is for”

When you’re weak, I’ll be strong
When you let go, I’ll hold on
When you need to cry, I swear
That I’ll be there to dry your eyes
When you feel lost and scared to death,
Like you can’t take one more step
Just take my hand, together we can do it
I’m gonna love you through it.

And when this road gets too long
I’ll be the rock you lean on
Just take my hand, together we can do it
I’m gonna love you through it.
I’m gonna love you through it.

Perhaps tonight is a good time for all of us to count blessings; say ‘Thank You’ to our God, whatever we conceive Him to be, and commit to supporting Suir Haven, who do such great work here in Thurles.
