Getting there...

Blah, blah, blah...another post about the Big C.  Well, not really the Big C, but rather my journey towards healing after its invasion.  I apologize to all of you who may be sick of listening to me talk about it. I too look forward to the day when it doesn't have such a presence in my life, but right now, it's still often at the forefront of my thinking, especially when anniversary dates approach.

Friday officially marked 2 years of being cancer free! I'm a changed person since then and I am certainly more keenly aware of the blessings I have in my life and the opportunities to "live" in the everyday moments.  Last Monday I also had a visit with my oncology surgeon and all was well.  Each visit to a "breast" doctor brings with it a good share of anxiety, but it feels pretty great walking out of there with a good report.

I know someday my life altering visit from the Big C will be a small blip on my life's timeline, but right now it's still a pretty big blip and only with time and continued healing will it start to get smaller.  In fact, I believe it already has.  Thank you to all of you who continue to walk along side me, encouraging me at every step (even on the days when you are probably tired of hearing about it).  That, my friends, is why every day gets a little bit easier.

Here is a 30 second flipagram video of my journey.  Unfortunately, the pictures are in reverse order, but you get the idea.  
Happy Monday.
