Have I mentioned lately how I am blessed with an amazing husband? I am so thankful that he is a hard worker. Some days, blessings come in small little packages. This gave me a little time to rest and extra time to get a few things done before he woke up.
Today I am thankful for the ability of having two vehicles. This helps me get errands done and out of the way while my husband is working, giving us more time together in the evenings. What about you? What are some the blessings in your life this week? Your email address will not be published.

I despise the notion that a good attitude somehow effects the outcome of your diagnosis-it places the blame on the patient for not "smiling" enough. Tears and mourning are a natural process when your life has been hijacked by forces beyond your control! Yes a good attitude includes anger, fear, mourning and appreciation. Yes a good attitude lets you appreciate the minutia that most people cannot see, feel or appreciate. I am writing this post because I no longer count the days-even years since my year of hell. Dates become fuzzy and some memories lost.

Blog Press. Exactly one year ago today, my life was forever changed. It's incredible to think of how a few small words can turn your life upside down and transform your entire world in an instant. Although a year ago I knew I had a battle ahead of me, I never could have dreamed it would become such a daunting one, with such a dire diagnosis. In so many ways, it still feels surreal.
I spent some quiet time alone last night, reflecting on everything that has happened throughout this past year. I re-read all comments written on my very first post on this blog. The love and outpouring of support was overwhelming then - and it still is today.
The first paragraph I wrote on that first blog entry says it best I have a truly AMAZING husband that is the absolute love of my life please excuse the cheesy, lovey-dovey stuff- I can't help myself sometimes , a mother and step-father that are the best, and a brother that has put up with me for 29 years and loves me anyways. Yep, turned the big on Monday and then found out about the big "C word" 2 days later In addition to these wonderful people, I have the most loving aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, and grandmother ever!
I am beyond blessed to have the most incredible support network of family, friends, and even complete strangers. I truly have no idea how anyone gets through times like this without that. I have made it through these last days because of your support, your love, and your prayers. For days, I have known that I am living with cancer. For days, I have looked at the world differently. For days, I have lived with first hand knowledge that life is a precious gift.
And for days, I have endured more physically, mentally and emotionally than I ever thought I would in this lifetime I have attended fundraisers, spoke to high schoolers, and travelled to conferences. I have made new friends, reached out, and shared my story to try to help others. I have learned how to let go of stress, accept help from others, and learned how to say "no".

I have learned how to take even better care of myself, how to truly relax, and how to live in the moment. I have learned to have more patience, to not sweat the small stuff, and to let go of the things which I cannot control. I have slept a lot, celebrated a lot, and even travelled a lot.
I have laughed and cried, laughed and cried I've revised my hopes and dreams - but haven't stopped hoping and dreaming. I've prayed, promised, bargained I've figured out what my true priorities are in life. I smile and laugh every day.
