Not Cancer!

Surgery has come and gone. Pathology results came in and I am clear! I cannot put to words the sigh of relief this brings to me and my family. We are all grateful and happy. To enter into treatments for cancer was not something we wanted; but then, nobody does.

Just living with the advent of cancer brought life to a pause enough. I know for myself, I reflected on the what-if’s, I embodied the feelings as they rose. I allowed myself to consider the possibilities and set forth the plan of steps I’d take.  I felt like a small insignificant animal out braving the elements. I knew I was able to weather the storm – I had what it takes to make it through. But as the winds began to blow and the rain pelted hard in my ears – I wondered. I questioned and I longed for the peace that passes all understanding to sit beside me, wrap itself around me and not let go.
