Good Friday

30 Mar

Today is Good Friday.  On Good Friday last year I found out that I had breast cancer.  Today, on Facebook, I posted:

What a year it has been! So thankful that God brought me through it and I am cancer free. This is what I said on my first blog post after finding out I had breast cancer, “I am so thankful that God chose Good Friday to reveal this to me. It is a reminder of how much He loves me! He died for me and suffered for me so that I may have eternal life with Him. He has forgiven me for my sins and through his blood I am restored. Praise God!” If I had died from the cancer, I knew in my heart that everything would be just fine. I would wake up in the best place! It was a blessed year.”  

I really meant what I said then and I really mean it now.  It really has been a year of blessings.  It has been hard, very hard…don’t get me wrong, but I have seen God work so much in my life and those around me as well.  In a week or so I will post the “official one year post” since the one year anniversary is actually 4/6, but I wanted to say how wonderful my God is on Good Friday.

6 Month’s Post Chemo

10 Mar

I finally found a little time to sit down and type up a post.  It has been quite awhile since I’ve posted.  I am a little over 6 months post-chemo.  Can you believe it has already been over 6 months??  Wow.  August 28th was my last day of chemo and time has flown by!  I am 3 months post-reconstruction and I’m less than a month away from my 1-year anniversary of my breast cancer diagnosis.  God willing I will be writing about my 1-year anniversary in a few weeks.  🙂  I am so thankful that my Lord healed me and that I am doing so well.  God is good!

I’m so happy to be this far out from chemo.  At night, when I flip over to my stomach to go to sleep I still get teary-eyed thinking back to all of those MONTHS where I couldn’t sleep on my stomach and how much I struggled with being comfortable.  I tear up because I’m so thankful that I can do it now.  Such a small thing…but it is a huge blessing.  I love that I’m feeling so much better (although I did have a cold all week).  I even met a woman today that had breast cancer last year too and finished chemo around the same time I did.  She had Stage 4, but she is doing really well now and I thought she looked great.  She is about 20 years older than I am.  Her hair is actually a little shorter than mine even though she finished chemo a month before me.  But, hers was STRAIGHT……mine isn’t.  I won’t go into the hair thing again…..that is why I’ve tried to stay off my blog lately.  lol!  I have been doing a lot of praying about it.  Anyway…..I need to change the subject.
