a day, a week, a year.....

Kind of reminds me of the theme song from Rent.......

If you knew it was coming to an end - what would you do?
How would your priorities change? Would they? Or are you living the life that you want to be living at this very moment?

My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer on Wednesday.
She's 10 years younger than my grandmother was when she was diagnosed. Granny died just over a year later.

I did freak out when I found out, and the memories have not been particularly sweet.

Now though..... we're incredibly relieved that it was breast cancer and not her melanoma spreading - which would have meant that it could have spread everywhere and there would be little they could do.

She will hopefully have her surgery this week, recover from that and go through 6 weeks of Radiation therapy.
Prognosis is good, and mum is doing awesomely well.

Between here and there, a whole lot of praying and a whole lot of walking in Faith.

"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen...."

So.... my question really is.... are you living the life you want to live?
Are you being all you are meant to be?
What is God telling you to do right now?

I'd have to answer yes and no.

I'm still here, and I'm glad that I have the answers now for why the doors have been repeatedly slammed this year every time I've made moves to leave.

I have a long way to go....

Sorry to hear about your Mom, I hope the surgery and treatment goes well. Sometimes we are so very human and feel so unnecessary but I'm always amazed at how much He loves us and wants the best for us - whether we deserve it or not. ec

That's a tough diagnosis n treatment regimen for about the next year or so- but they are getting better at curing that disease, so keep your hopes high!

I pray for you everyday, n will add your Mum onto the list next to you.
It's amazing how things work out for the best, even when you thought you were to do something else!

Prayer is always the answer. :)
