And So it began

"ONCE UPON A TIME"....there came along this little lump...insignificant really when you compare it to the entire world of lumps. That is, right up to the point that it wasn't...insignificant I mean............... and so began my journey.

A NEWER SHADE OF I more then SURVIVE...I am learning to THRIVE...

OF COURSE... we all know things are bound to get a little crazy with a surprise around most every corner...not to mention an assortment of bumps and bruises along the way...but I am ever thankful for them all...they have all made me who I am. So buckle up, hold on tight and enjoy the ride thru what I lovingly refer to as LIFE

- PART 2 -

LEST WE FORGET - All our BLESSINGS & the MIRACLES in our lives.


How often does life get in the way and we become too distracted by all the "stuff" that is our lives and we go day to day just going thru the motions so mindlessly that we don't even remember what we did?  We have all  had the conversation with someone (I had one with my brother yesterday)and they ask "what you have been up to?" and you can't come up with a single thing?  All the days roll into each other and we can't even remember what we had to eat?  I will admit I have spent the better part of almost a year with my eye off the ball & getting hi-jacked by all the "stuff"...especially the post cancer/chemo mess your body is left in & not truly cherishing the gift of healing and life itself that once again has been given me.  I've been whiney & over focussed on trying to get answers to pains and aches that I never will...blah blah blah....leaning WAY over into the "I can't anymore", "I'll never again", "what next" head space instead of acknowledging all my personal little victories....and there have been many.  Nothing that anyone else would notice or care about but to me they were HUGE!!!  

Ya....I still ache really bad all the time and most day have the energy of a sloth....nope, that might even be a stretch....but time to dig myself out of the trench and put on my big girl panties and find something everyday to be rejoice over....start to celebrate the little small stuff cause honestly....the big stuff if just too far out on my grasp....FOR NOW!!

  EVERY minute of every day is a Gift & Blessing ....Our Life, Time itself, Easy & Hard times, Family, Friendships....& OUR FREEDOMS
