Today I have survived Cancer for 15 years It is my Cancerversary!
We have three sons who were only 13, 11 and 8 at the time. Of course they were my first thoughts as I asked her "Am I going to die"?
This began the very long difficult road that was ahead of all of us and continues on to this very day.
I remember praying to God...."Please let me raise my boys"...and He did! As soon as our youngest graduated from high school and went to college the second diagnosis came. This time it was stage 4 metastatic cancer. It spread, we prayed, we ALL prayed! "Please God let me see my sons get married and become a grandmother"....He did! Well, two of them anyways :)
Oh we had no idea the challenges we would face with 6 more recurrences since then.
So we pray and ask God, "please let me see my sons and daughters (in-law) continue to grow into the awesome men and women they have become. Please let me know and love all my gandbabies....Please let Chris and I become great grandparents and grow old together as a couple and best friends".
"Please help us to understand and accept Your will and plans for my life". We continue to Pray, to Trust, to Wait and to Love.
Thank you all who have been on this very long journey with us.
