There is something about grace that speaks to my heart. It’s an unmerited favor, a gift from God in the form of a son, the first person in my life that made me want to live for someone other than myself. A daughter that I did not deserve whose middle name, Grace, epitomizes how I feel about family and her. My stepson, a second son born to another sweet mother. A second chance to be a wife to my husband, whose love for me has been so unconditional it gives life to the scripture that states husbands are to love their wives the way Jesus loves the church. A love that would die for me and I for him. The very fact that I have them in my life is solely because of God’s grace.
A few weeks ago I started a new journey that I believe gives me an opportunity to see life thru new lenses. Breast cancer. Yes, it’s the club no woman wants to join. Surprisingly after the initial shock I found myself in a very unique position. A second chance to view life thru the perspective of time. A second chance to enjoy things and opportunities I may have missed had I not received this diagnostic. The bonus… I get to be a part of a community of strong women who inspire me to be brave. That’s a gift of God’s grace.
So I decided to start a blog and invite you to walk this journey with me and my family. It will not solely be centered around my experience with cancer but about me living my best life yet. It may not always be fun but it will be interesting as I choose to find the good, the funny and the love each day has to offer.
They say a journey of a thousand miles begin with one single step. Welcome to my blog…
