I am making strides in my recovery and I am so grateful for how far I have come. I am striving to maintain peace in my heart over all that I have been through. The big struggle is finding the space to hope and believe that the worst is behind me. Thankfully there are now days that I actually forget that I battled breast cancer...even though I am still bruised and scarred from the battle field. I'm continuing to drink fresh juices and have also taken on a vegan diet in efforts to keep the dreaded C at bay. Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers, healing vibes, kind letters and love. You have seen me through the storm in ways you can't imagine. Here's to more peaceful days and improving health! The human body is a miraculous thing.
"Today is the day I take my life back." - Rebekah Gregory. Seeing her come across the finish line of the Boston Marathon yesterday was so touching. Her statement resonated with me. It is the same reason I have signed up for the Marine Corps Marathon...to take my life back from breast cancer. To prove to myself that my best days are not behind me. This morning I was reminded that "taking my life back" is a daily commitment. Choices have to be made each and every day that effect the bottom line. So I ask you. How will you take your life back today?
