I look at this face and I have to laugh. Because it could’ve be much worse. I have a cracked molar tooth, (maybe fractured nose), bruised body and swollen thumb all from little accidents within a four day period in the past week. And umm (I’m at Clarine’s house). My dad said Clarine’s is trying to sabotage me, so I can stay with her longer, HAHAHAHA I think he might be right (SIKE, love you sistaaaaaa). She said I need to re-center my equilibrium, hmm she might be right.
But, I think God is telling me to STOP, REFLECT, PRAY & GIVE THANKS BECAUSE YOU ARE STILL HERE.
Three years ago around this time, I just finished my fourth chemo treatment for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, cut my hair off because it was falling out and the bruise under my neck appeared. I’ve come a long way. WHEWW
But, honestly there are times when, I say WOW, GOD I am still HERE! For those that know my story, I was diagnosed eight months after my mom passed from breast cancer. Therefore, I didn’t have my mom to ask for advice and prayers. However, I had a support group of four women who were battling cancer who I relied on for support, prayers, advice and encouragement. My Aunt Pam, my Cousin Jocelyn, Mama Pam (my bff Yanie’s mom) and my Aunt Oletha. Sadly, all four women have passed away. But, GOD! I’m forever thankful for what I’ve learned from them, trusting God, gaining strength from God, living life regardless of your circumstance and being ready for when God calls you. It’s been a struggle with survivor’s guilt because they’re all gone. But, GOD! He will always get your attention no matter how. KEEP PUSHING, STAY FOCUSED, REFLECT ON YOUR PAST AND LOOK TO YOUR FUTURE!
What do you do with your second chance at life?
