My dear friends,
I haven't posted on the site in a while, but I have been reading your notes. They continue to uplift and encourage me. I am doing well. Finished chemo and radiation. I have lots of aches and pains that I didn't have before, but it's endurable. I just wanted to share a funny thing. I am a middle school teacher and this week was school spirit week. Today was crazy hair day. I have a nice head of short hair again...incredibly curly (I always had straight hair and envied all those who had the natural curls, so I am pleased as punch!) Anyway, I chose to wear a silly wig that I bought for my chemo days. Much to my dismay, it was so much easier to wear when I was bald! I got a good chuckle at having to struggle to get the wig on. It was a long red haired one...I'm a short curly salt and pepper now. Anyway, I just wanted to let all of you know that I am able to laugh at so much again and it feels so good. God has blessed me greatly. Both of my children are getting married, so that is what is occupying my time when I'm not working. I am so happy that I am able to be at their weddings and I plan to be around to see many grandchildren! I guess I just wanted to tell all the new ladies that things do get better. The road has been really rough a long the way (and much rougher for so many others) but the journey has brought me so much...new friends, new priorities, and a deeper trust and relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Hang in there! There is hope and peace inspite of cancer. You continue to be in my prayers.
