Taking time to reflect today on this last full week of one of my favorite months...15 years! It is like I get a bonus birthday every year...15 years remission...During this month,15 years ago, I had just finished a round of terrible chemo treatments...The strongest they could give me with more meds for a week after I went home..My body went through warfare...I had been given 6 months to a year survival...Radiation was going to begin...Much pain...It affected my eyesight... Cancer had left me with only one workable vocal cord....Radiation took away my voice.... They did not know if it would return...But GOD had other plans....Today I am here, 15 years later....My voice came back....On a good day I can hum and sometimes that 1 vocal cord allows me to softly sing.....I have my 10 year old, Luke, that was added to our little family of 3 to make us a little family of 4...He was born 2 1/2 weeks after my 40th birthday....God has been so good to me!! And on this 15th bonus year, I want to publicly praise HIM for all his many blessings...I could not be here....Luke would not be here....But God was not ready for me yet! So, each year to me is a bonus year! I am forever very grateful! 💙
