Leukemia - How is Jemma? - Day 7
Have you read the book The Five Love Languages? It is a book I really enjoyed. The author discusses five different ways in which people feel loved: quality time, words of affirmation, receiving gifts, physical touch and acts of service. The book is written for couples, but the main principles can be applied to any relationship. Once you understand the love language of the other person in the relationship things can be done by you, for them, to improve the relationship. I believe Jemma's two love languages are gifts and acts of service. Many people have brought her gifts and gifts really make her feel loved. The doctors, nurses, my husband and I have been doing lots of things for Jemma and this is the other way she feels loved. Although she probably wouldn't choose being in the hospital and being sick, the time she is spending here is definitely making her feel more loved.
I really hope she continues to feel good. Tomorrow will be her first day of chemo.
