Hello! My name is Sandra and I will be 67 next month on southern memorial day, kind of appropriate as Florida is my birth place. I was born into a Christian family the day after Easter and baptised as an infant. I was married for 30 yrs and now single for the last 10. I am mother to three beautiful talented smart adult children and two handsome smart grandsons. I have lived in Florida, Pennsylvania, Kansas and now New Hampshire.
I was blessed with good health until Jan '09. Now I am learning to live with a stage IV metastatic breast cancer diagnosis. Currently waiting for eye lashes, eyebrows and hair to grow back after seven months of chemo.
I usually hang out in the stage IV forum with an incredible group of strong caring women.
I know God has a sense of humor. I had been over weight most of my adult life and had a prayer about ten years ago for help in losing weight . . . anything but cancer. Could God be deaf?
I know He has a plan . . . . .wondering what it is. Wish He would leave notes on my refrigerator regarding specifics of doing His will in my life. Upon dx asked to be His miracle. We shall see!
I like quotations and poetry and have been writing since age 9.
How thankful I had wont to be
For all that God has shared with me.
A healthy life, a fam'ly loved
A Savior who looks down above.
Who showers love upon this child,
Who is not meek and neither mild.
For I can only say to you
That I am blessed as very few
And cannot aswer why it's so
I guess that is for God to know.
I see daily evidence of God's love in my life.
Hugs Sandra . . . . . "If God sends you down a stony path, may he give you strong shoes."
