Today I turned 50 years old, I have Stage IV Inflammatory Breast Cancer, other health issues possibly caused by or at least caused in part by the cancer (diabetes, blood clot) . . . . . and I’m happy.
I know those things don’t always go together; in fact, they haven’t always gone together for me. But, I have so much love in my life, so many incredible friends, family members, and a tremendous church family. I have the best son in the world. They lift me up, my faith lifts me up, and I feel extremely blessed and lately very happy.
I am LIVING. I might be living with cancer, but the key word there is LIVING. LIFE. I may have a scary diagnosis, but I also have an awesome oncologist, so many people praying for me, and a faith that builds me up. I have no idea how much time I have on this earth, but I’m going to squeeze as much LIFE out of it as I can.
In spite of the cancer and the other medical problems, I feel incredibly blessed.
LIVING and BLESSED = a happy heart.
That’s all kinds of WIN, in my book. 🙂
