I was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago. There were many frightening aspects of going through that diagnosis and recovery. But I was surprised to find many blessings along the way as well!
Living & working on a cattle ranch means I certainty couldn’t do my ranching chores for awhile. And my strength was zapped so it was difficult to even do the simple things like cook and clean, and planting my beloved garden was out of the question.
But a group of friends surprised me by showing up at my door early one Saturday and planting my garden for me. Tears of joy and appreciation streamed down my face as I was touched by their kind gesture. I truly felt the embrace of God Himself that day.
D’ya hear that??? Felt the embrace of GOD. Now that’s a powerful feeling, my friends!
Last year something happened to me that affected me profoundly – I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Now hear me out, I’m going somewhere with this…
Several surgeries and thousands of prayers later I’m cancer free, praise GOD! But this frightening experience has changed me forever. I’m more keenly aware of the importance of faith, family & friends, I no longer take good health for granted.
And I’ve discovered that I really like the color PINK. I have hot pink shoelaces in my shoes, a bright pink cellphone case, a pink tablet case, pink hats and many pink shirts in my wardrobe.
RancherMan supports me in this great pinkness endeavor and he is often the gift-presenter for my pink accessories. But sometimes wonder, do I go too far?
Y’all know I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year – what a frightening time in my life! During my surgeries & recovery a group of friends walked in the Relay For Life in my honor to raise money for the American Cancer Society. This Friday I’ll be doing some walking myself – Praise God! Please, if you or someone you care about has been affected by cancer, or if you just want to send some comfort – YOU can help!
RancherMan & I had been thinking about getting a dog for quite a while now. We haven’t had any pets for many years and the hankerin’ to get a pooch to hang around the ranch with us has been quietly whispering in our ear for years.
We’d talked about it many times but I’m allergic to pet dander. So the breed we ended up with needed to be more than cute and lovable. It needed to be a lower allergy breed like a poodle, a schnauzer or a terrier.
I wanted a dog small enough that it could be in inside dog. And I wanted it to have what I’ve always called ‘puppy eyes’.
RancherMan preferred a dog that wasn’t too small to comfortably be outside roaming with him. He didn’t want a young puppy and he preferred it to be a female.
Many of you know that last year was very challenging for RancherMan & me. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and struggled through a frightening year of specialists, medical procedures and surgeries. I’m here to tell ya there’s no other feeling like sitting in that doctor’s office and being told“You Have CANCER”.
It seems time stops and you enter another dimension as you struggle to understand how this could possibly happen. Frightening thoughts scream through your mind… What does this mean about the rest of my life? What about my children? What about my husband? How will I be able to pay for treatment? Will I survive this awful disease?
