Perspectives.

Recently, I have realized what a miracle the past two and a half years of my life has been. I realized how blessed I was- this realization hit me like a ton of bricks and I realized that I really owe a lot to the Lord. Here are some recaps about my journey through the past 2 and a half years and my cancer treatments. I hope you realize how blessed and healed I feel

AND HOW FAR I HAVE COME

2.5 years ago I was told I had a rare, aggressive form of cancer
2 months later I told my family
2.5 years ago I was told if I didn't take action quickly
the cancer would eat away at my vital organs resulting in certain death
Here I sit, proudly proclaiming I am cancer free. I am healthy.
2.5 years ago I told Jeremy I would not be able to give him children
2 weeks ago, I was told my uterus is perfectly healthy and I should have no problem conceiving
2.5 years ago, I was told if I took a traditional route of treatment, I would be
bald for my wedding
Jeremy said I would still be the most beautiful woman he had ever seen
2.5 years ago I was taking 13 different medications 2-3x a day (33 pills a day)
Now, I am only taking 6 PILLS A DAY!
2.5 years ago I was afraid of never living out my dreams
this year, I started my Phd
2.5 years ago, I was angry with God and wanted nothing to do with him
2 weeks ago, my faith and love for Him was renewed
2.5 years ago, I was embarrassed to lean on anyone. I did not tell anyone what I was going through
Now, I proudly talk about my cancer and the miracle I have been given
2.5 years ago, I was scared I would die.
I will be 28 in 10 days.
2.5 years ago, I thought I was the unluckiest person in the world
in 2 weeks, my husband and I will celebrate our 2nd anniversary
he is my rock, my best friend, and I fall more in love with him everyday
Thank you Jeremy for marrying me anyways.
2.5 years ago, I had no idea what was going to happen
2 weeks ago, I realized that Jeremiah 29:11 was always true
Regardless of life circumstances.
I now realize how blessed I am.
How LUCKY I am
How grateful I am to have a God who LOVES ME
How much I love my husband
How much I love my family
How much I love my best friends (M's!)
My last pill will be taken on December 12th.
I think its time to celebrate.

I have tears in my eyes and am so very proud of you, sugar. I know you have walked through many valleys, but God has never left you and Dad and I are ALWAYS here for you.
We love you more than you could possibly know.
Love, Mama
