One year ago today I was outside playing in the yard with the kids and my cell phone rang.  Part of me thought that because it was New Year's Eve, it certainly was going to be good news and I could ring in the New Year with a big sigh of relief.  However, that is not how the story went.  I proceeded to answer the phone and got the news that I indeed had tested positive for Breast Cancer...that was it...that was all I knew...that I tested positive.  Having a lack of information just allows the brain to go all sorts of crazy creating scenarios, and for the days that followed that's pretty much how the story played out.  

Now, here I am one year later.  In some ways it seems like I have been through so much during this past year and in other ways, it's gone by quickly, somewhat of a blur (probably in part due to the enormous amounts of meds ;/)

Although I now realize that this past year taught me so very much, that it was supposed to happen, and that it was a part of a Master Plan, I'm ready to move on to 2013, and start anew.

Thank you for following me on this life journey during the past turbulent year.  I'm looking forward to the year ahead with a renewed sense of gratitude and appreciation for life.

Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.
