I was diagnosed with stage I endometrial adenosarcoma in June 2014. I had been to see my gyn many times over the last 5 years with a very occasional uterine spotting. All of the different tests were always negetive. This time when I started spotting it was a little different. I was in menopause for about 6 years.
Hello to all my friends from the chat. Tonight we were talking about hair and chemo. I remember wig shopping and how devistating losing my hair was. But when it actually happened, I think that the worry before was worse , not knowing what to expect, and trying to think about losing something that we all spend so much time with that is such an important part of our appearance. The reality was , once it happened, some how I was able to accept how I looked and began to enjoy not having to take time to fix it or worry about how it looked.
When I look back at how long it has been since I first heard the word - Cancer.I have come a long way because the power of prayers said through daily perserverance.God's grace has carried me ,strengthen me and continued to be my only refuge.I am looking forward to celebrate my 5th year as a cancer survivor with great joy.This May will be a day to be remembered as I am going to purchase a beautiful ring from the bradfort exchange.Which , I have been waiting for with hope and acknowledgement to God who has made this possible through His grace and living word.I have only attended 1 relay walk
I woke up again this morning...A CANCER SURVIVOR! My life is absolutely and completely in My Lord's hands; good or bad. However, I am absolutely and completely in control over how I choose to deal with it.
I was going to die. Then I didn't, and I haven't. I am using and treating every day that I have as a gift; a chance to help others see the amazing works of The Lord!
!!GLORY TO GOD!!
I baked another clafoutis (French dessert) yesterday, this time with blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and figs! :)
Here is the recipe for the traditional clafoutis (made with dark cherries).
One can use any fruit of one's liking though, so don't be afraid to be creative.
It is a super easy recipe to prepare, and is totally delicious.
Give it a try...
And here's one of the sheep.
They are so cute! Each of them has distinct features and a unique personality.
We love our animal friends, they really help our mood. :)
Here's a photo I took of the red headed woodpecker (visually) - Pileated Woodpecker (real name) we were lucky enough to see yesterday. :)
Such a beautiful bird!
