Losing my hair – growing my hair
Ignorance – wisdom
Blind faith – insightful faith
Loss – Gain
Conflict – Inner peace
Seclusion – Community
Cancer – Remission
Last year – on this day, at the beginning of my battle with stage 4 ovarian cancer, I wrote the following:
“I want to live. I am not ready to go. I will think positively. I love life. I will set goals. I will use others’ strength. I will learn new recipes. I will love my children. I will love my husband and appreciate our relationship. I will read happy things. I will laugh. I will breath. I will enjoy. I will pray. I will fight! I am strong. I am healthy. I am determined. I am courageous. I will deal with my hair. I will return to teaching and make a difference. I want to live deeply.” (from Juxtapositions)
One year later – it seems I did all of those things. At least – I hope I did. I’ve never stopped wanting to do all of those things.
Prayed to God for my life – Thanking God for my life.
