life can change on a dime

One year ago today, I heard the words, “that’s cancer,” and my world stopped spinning for a moment.

I won’t go over all the feelings, thoughts, and everything else I’ve been through during the past year here in this post. It’s in my blog, Just Enjoy Him, and quite frankly, I don’t want to relive it right now.

But my life changed at that moment, in ways that I couldn’t have guessed, ever.

Life can change, immutably, in the blink of an eye.

And can change again, as mine thankfully, gratefully did again, on December 9, 2008, when I learned that my CT scan showed no signs of cancer.

*blink* — You have cancer.
*blink* — It’s metastatic.
*blink* — The cancer is gone.

Cherish each moment, if you can, cherish each loved one in your life especially.

I know I’m a broken record, but I can’t get over what happened to me on December 20, 2007 or December 9, 2008.

Or in between.


Life is beautiful.

    I was just discussing with my kids what a mirical is, My youngest who is 6 said boy it’s a that miracle we finished our shopping and I said NO my friend Judy’s cancer is gone and it had spread and now it is just gone. THAT is a miracle! and all the girls agreed that that is what a miracle is. Things can change in a blink. It makes everything more precious.
