NEARING THE END OF A JOURNEY
As I was driving home from my plastic surgeon's appointment yesterday, I realized that this journey over these past 20 months was nearing an end. In some ways, I felt like it was just yesterday that we heard those dreaded words, you have breast cancer, while in other ways it seems like a life time ago. When you are on a journey like this you always remember the beginning and the present steps you are taking, but you so often wonder, will this ever end? At times, I (we) felt so buffeted by the winds, we wondered if we could even catch our breath. Would I survive to really live again, not just exist, but live? Cancer brought so many changes with it and we never knew what to expect each time we encountered a new day. But I am here to let you know that I am the palm tree on the left and I have survived, stronger than ever. More determined to share the love of the Lord with everyone I meet--ready to see people come to "new life" in our precious Jesus. He is the only Hope that we have.
