DRUM ROLL, PLEASE…………
I am officially a “one year cancer survivor!”
I knew I would be excited – but I didn’t expect to be sooooooo excited! My hubby came home early yesterday afternoon and caught me dancing in the kitchen; I went to a party last night and I mentioned it
too many a few times; I put it on Facebook and revelled in the sweet comments and “likes.” It was just an awesome day.
Then I came home last night and didn’t check my email, so this morning I woke up and clicked on this!
Oh. My. Goodness!!! Is that not the sweetest thing a brother could do for his sister? Thank you Mike, Kristin, and Madi – you have made my celebration complete!
Someone asked me if having cancer had ANY kind of blessing in it. It has: I’ve been shown how many people truly love and support me. I knew I had wonderful family and friends, but I didn’t know HOW much they loved and supported me. I can’t tell you how much Mike’s video meant to me; how much friends and family huddled together at the hospital the day of my mastectomy surgery meant to me, how much all the meals, cards, calls, texts, and blog comments meant to me. I have been flooded with love and care all year long – and that has been my blessing in this cancer journey.
And so right now, this moment, I want to say thank you to all my friends and family for making this past year “doable.” Without you, it would have been so much harder.
And I can’t celebrate my healing without celebrating the Healer! Thank you, Jesus, for all Your many blessings this past year.
My new favorite Scripture is Psalm 103:2-5:
“Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins, and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagles.”
Love to all, Deb
