Fear: a feeling that is part of life just like joy and sorrow is. Without fear we would never be able to find out just how damn strong we are when we have to be.
June 3, 2016...a day that I remember quite vividly. Out of work for 2 plus years, at the end of March I had just started a brand new job and was so excited. But God had other plans for me as I had found a lump and was going in to have it checked. As I finished double checking my history on the iPad they gave me at check in, I hesitated to check yes or no on the very last question "has anything changed since your last mammogram"...I checked yes and that was the start o(r detour) on my current journey.
I am the don't make waves, don't get in trouble, the "little middle kid" that flies under the radar person. Breast cancer doesn't allow that to happen to you.
Without my faith in God, the support of my husband and family and a whole lot of prayer I am where I am today. Does it suck - sure it does. I had days where I cried, screamed and hated every single moment of that particular day . I also had "ok" days and counted on those days to make the bad ones manageable. I learned a whole lot about people along the way as well which is a whole other story. Do I dwell on it - absolutely not.
I ride my own Harley. I have a patch on my vest that says "Put your big girl panties on and biker up!"
In life all we need to do is hang on for the ride! God's got it all!!
