A Big Week!

last treatment...Bellen is obviously ecstatic!

spoiled by my husband with birthday treats
This was a big week...I finished my final chemo treatment (woo-hoo!). I also turned 37!
A few weeks ago I met a new friend at the Moores Cancer Center. We are both young(ish) moms, who are walking thru Breast Cancer at an unexpected time in life. It struck me, this week as I was reflecting on finishing chemo, how the Lord places "flowers" along our journey. We can choose to stop and pick those flowers...benefiting from the blessing that comes from stopping and looking for God. Or, sometimes, we get so caught up in the actual journey that we don't take time to stop or even notice the "flowers", or blessings, that God has placed in our path. My new friend, is one of these blessings. To be able to speak to someone who is going thru the same thing at the same time in life is encouraging.

With chemo behind me, I have 3 more hills to climb during this journey (surgery, radiation, reconstruction). As a friend pointed out, "hills that I couldn't climb without the strength of the Lord." He has been so good to our family....thank you to each and everyone who has encouraged, provided and blessed us in some way. God has used you as "flowers" in this part of our journey.

  1. I am so glad to see you had a wonderful birthday!! God's timing is so perfect. He allowed you to have chemotherapy done on your birthday so you would have even more reason to celebrate. Love you and happy birthday Britton!
