Back to the post.....
Last year when I thought my life could get no more crazier than it already was.... hubby was gone for a year to Korea, I was working full-time at a job that kept me on my toes (tip-toes at times, right, Jonya?), I had 2 kids in college- one away and one at home and a 16 year old daughter whom I thought had gone off the deep end (that is a whole other story), I was trying to get my house ready to sell so we could move (and we didn't know where yet...talk about stress)......when all of that was going on, I went in for a routine mammogram. The next day I got a call saying they wanted me to come back in for an ultrasound because they had found "something". I was so very worried. But, I had a secret weapon and it was time to use it. Prayer. God quickly gave me the strength I needed to get through that stressor as well as all of the other stressors last year brought my way. He gave me that "peace that passes all understanding". Boy, did I need it.
I still have that "something", but it's nothing. It's not growing or moving and who knows what it is, but apparently nothing to worry about. Others have lumps or bumps that are something. I don't know why and can't begin to fathom why. But, there's a reason. And I trust God that someday we'll know the reasons. Until then... there's that color pink. And...
Breast cancer has touched my family. I have a cousin who went through it. Two of my best friends have relatives who have went through and/or are going through the fight. So, as today is October 1, I am joining the hundreds (probably thousands) of blogs and websites going Pink for October. You can click on this link for more information. Help support Breast Cancer Awareness month and GO PINK!
That leads me into my blog candy or as I like to call it... Butterfly Kisses. I am celebrating 10,000 hits on my blog AND I'm doing so on the 1st of October so it's gotta be pink!
