If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

"Tell a Fairy Tale Day" Virtual 5K


On Saturday morning early, I went out and walked a Virtual 5K in my neighborhood.  I earned this medal for the effort.  I haven't been walking as much this summer, but this I think is helping me to get back on track.  I have another one to do this month.  It's the 2020 Pumpkin Run and usually is done in this area at a place called Bonnie Brook Farm.  But due to Covid, it's a Virtual Race this year too.  For me it is a walk, as I'm not really concerned with the pace, but just want to complete the race.  Although, honestly, I guess I do hope to improve my time some.

Part of the reason my time is a little longer is because I keep stopping and taking pictures throughout my walk.  It was a beautiful morning and we're starting to get some leaves changing colors.  Here are a couple pictures I took.

This is the only one from my yard.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 


I am a Survivor.  I was diagnosed in late January, early February of 2016.  I went through months of chemotherapy and then had 2 surgeries and weeks of radiation which ended in December of that year..  

First of all, I am so thankful to God for how He gave me such a peace that I had never had before when I was diagnosed and through all the treatments.  Rarely did I get really scared and I'm the person who has white-coat syndrome really bad.  But that year because of the prayers of everyone, God gave me a peace so that when I went for treatment or for a doctor visit or even surgery, there really was very little fear.  That has got to be a God thing!

I'm also very thankful for my husband and how he was always there with me each step of the way.  He went to every chemo treatment and every radiation treatment except one, I think because he had a doctor's appointment.  He was my rock.

I'm also thankful for my sister who is a 29-30 year survivor.  She called me most days and checked in and was just a real blessing.  She'll never know what she meant to be through that time.  I've tried to tell her, but I just can't really express it fully.

I'm also thankful for every person who said a prayer for me or sent a card or a gift or just a word of encouragement.  You know who you are and I love you.  My church family were also so very supportive.  I can't imagine going through that year with them.

I was blessed with 3 awesome doctors that told me from the beginning they were going for the cure.  They were patient and explained everything they were planning and were just awesome.  Also, every nurse, everyone who administered my chemo, were so awesome!

I am very blessed.

Now, I want to suggest that all of you be sure to get your annual mammogram.  Unfortunately, I hadn't had a mammogram in several years.  Maybe if I had kept up with them, my cancer would not have invaded as much as it did.  I don't beat myself up over it, but I surely don't want you to have to go through what I went through.  Yes, I know mammograms are uncomfortable and sometimes even a little painful.  But trust me it is nothing like all the treatments for cancer.  You better believe I don't miss them any more.  

Take care my friends!
