One year

I wish I knew how to add my post a year ago today. I went back and read it and it was just as painful as when I was given my results last year. So much has happened. If you would like to read you can go back. I remember waiting for what felt like forever to get my results and when the call came in it was the beginning of one of the hardest journeys that I have taking or watched someone take. I look back and can not believe that I have made it this far. I have had my ups and downs. Chemo was scary and I hope never to have to revisit that again. Surgery was tuff but I am glad I did it. Radiation was tiring and painful. My body took a major hit and I am still here. I saw the neatest saying last week. The first day you are diagnosed is the first day you are a survivor. Sometimes it sounds weird to even say it. I am still so raw and I consider myself still battling. I am not sure when you start letting the fear go. So much has happened and I know there is so much more to do. My girls have been through a lot and they have done so good with everything. I was lucky to have my family and Mike's family take care of the girls and myself. I could not have done it. My dr and care time worked hard to keep me going during all my treatments. My friends here and in blogland were amazing. The power of prayer brought the Miracle that I wanted. So I thank you for that. Thank you for wearing the bracelets. AS I continue to walk this journey I am still given Him all the Glory.

One year down and looking forward to the next. THANK YOU!

I haven't gone back to look at your posts from the beginning, but I can tell just from this and ever since I have been reading your blog, that you have to be one of the strongest women I *know*. You've kicked this past years rear end and I just know the next of your many many years will get better and better!

Hi. I just went back and read that post for the first time. wow. Your fear and your strength were both so apparent.

Today is a day to rejoice. God DOES listen and prayer IS essential.

I usually look at things with humor or, unfortunately, in a cynical way. But this brought tears to my eyes.

God Bless You...oh wait....He Did!
