Good morning ladies.
Groundhog ... praying for you. The other gals are right ... no one wants tro lose their hair - that's not vanity. When you look in the mirror now for every strand of hair loss think of it as more and more cancer being destroyed. (((((((HUGS)))))))))
ByGraceAlone: I really liked your poem and welcome!
Jackie: You are so awesome! You just seem to know what I need to hear. You have such a big and loving heart.
Spar: I will celebrate with you any time with a cup of kitties!
Jo: You are the "voice of reason" which keeps many of us grounded; Not to mention a great crafter and a loving soul.
It is so peaceful to go to this thread and hear the testimony of your faiths. It is strong and helps to hold me up. I don't know what God is up to but his knowledge is so much larger than mine and I trust Him to do what's best for me even if I don't have a clue.
I try to "Let Go and Let God." Then I try to take it back because He isn't working it out the way I would or taking too much time - Remember, I did say I need to learn, humility and patience!
In my case I think He is teaching me humility; trust, and patience. In religious reading His people are right there witih Him when times are tough but when they prosper and get all "puffed up - Iove that description - they enter into the "ways of the world" and forget about God. Not everyone does this, certainly but enough people do suddenly think when we prosper and get all content that somehow we did it all on our own. That's when He has to remind us again. I have done that so many times - that's why God needs a 2 x 4 upside the head to get my attention.
As for my knowledge of breast cancer. I knew almost nothing. Here's what I knew - breast cancer is one disease and it was all the same thing; chemo was required for all women diagnosed with breast cancer; and other people got it.
Here's what I thought would happen ... BMX with immediate tissues expanders so I would basically walk out of that hospital with something on my chest; I would get perky boobies and no one would be able to see that I had had breast cancer.
Here's what happened ... experienced a 'bleed' in the recovery room which necessitated a second trip to surgery; infected tissue expanders one month later and removal of tissue expanders, a seroma, a scarred up chest which is never going to look 'normal' again and a little humility!
Anyway, I have waxed on for too long. Just know I love you all.
