World Cancer Day

It’s World Cancer Day. Having been diagnosed 3 years ago, it has felt like an induction into a club I never asked to be part of. It’s something I have tried to avoid at all costs. I don’t want to be seen as a “cancer patient.” My first day at Hope4Cancer in Mexico, back in…

The Proverbial Turn

Have I finally reached the proverbial turn? You know the one, "Her health has taken a turn for the better", or "her health has taken a turn for the worse." Thankfully, in this case, I'm hoping I have finally reached that proverbial turn in a positive sense! In December I returned home for Christmas as…

Still Here!

I can't even believe it has been more than a year since I posted on here. I've thought about it so many times, but this year has been completely unexpected; between not having time or not having internet, or simply not knowing what to write, a whole year has passed in silence on the blog.…

How Did I Get Here? – Part 2

Choices

Life is full of laughter and crying. But there is always a choice to be made...I want my life to be a testimony that God is faithful and God is good - regardless of what my circumstances look like. At least with God there is the hope of impossibilities changing into possibilities. So today I choose joy; I choose God.
