Nope, I'm not going to say... it pours. While I certainly have felt that way lately, I refuse to buy into the saying "when it rains, it pours."Let me explain.Disclaimer: its late and I have surgery at 11:00 tomorrow morning (Monday, Aug 14th). It should be a quick 1-2 hour surgery with (hopefully) minimal pain… Continue reading When it rains…
I need a better title. This is probably my favorite type of post because it's not cancer related and I get to share with you some of my most favorite things... cue the music - girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes... my favorite movie. 😉 1) Fiction Book - I could talk about… Continue reading Favorite things – Part 2.
I'm going to be honest today... and this post is a little long. Bear with me. The last few weeks have been tough. Look on my Instagram and you may not agree, but who wants to post sad-anxious type pictures? Not me! I'm all about "being real" on social media, but posting happy things makes… Continue reading Gluten-free Daily Bread.
Because I need something to write about (and think about for that matter) other than cancer and because it's fun, well I think so anyway. A few of my favorite things, in case you're in the market too. Podcast - On Being by Krista Tippett. It's so good! On the serious side of good, but… Continue reading A few of my favorite things.

No happy or hopeful thoughts, those… Continue reading Dealing with cancer. Ugh.
I was looking for Proverbs 31... "she laughs without fear of the future" and I unintentionally turned to Psalms 31 instead. "I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. You have not handed me over to my enemies… Continue reading Psalms 31
The waiting period for getting the last test result in was hard. I waited for 6 weeks, should have been 12-14 days, but I know that the delay was not by chance. The Lord truly had His hand in all of this. Deuteronomy 31:8 - The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you;… Continue reading Waiting and Knowing.
Surgery is now a distant memory... well... kinda. I started back work on Tuesday, got the clear to go swimming and do more with John on Wednesday, and played my first tennis match since surgery on Thursday. This has been a great week! Getting to do my normal weekly activities now has made a huge… Continue reading Post surgery – 6 weeks-ish.
I have so many blog post subjects that I want to write about so I really should start writing more to get all of my thoughts out, but that takes time and nap time (specifically) is only so long! Next post will be a cancer update - coming tomorrow! I started a new journal today… Continue reading Timing is everything.
Everything causes cancer. EVERYTHING. I can't put one single thing in my mouth to eat without thinking of the repercussions it could have on my body. I know too much about food now. I've researched too much about chemicals and ingredients in packaging and food and everything in between and it's just too much. I… Continue reading Inedible brownies.
