It is going to be a good day.
Today also marks another very important milestone for me. It was 4 years ago on this very day that I said goodbye to the chemo that I loathed and loved at the same time. I loathed it for obvious reasons. It made me sick and made my body hurt. But I loved it because it had done it's job of killing my real enemy- the cancer that had invaded my body. To celebrate that very important day, my friends and family gave me a party. A beautiful, lively, lovely, and very pink, party. It was one of the greatest moments of my life.
(WARNING...if you do not like the color pink, I would not look at the following pictures.)
I hope to see a lot of these friendly faces at Marissa's Books as we celebrate another milestone in this journey. I have not come this far without you and I don't want to continue without you either.
This journey has been about 3 things from the very beginning...
1. God and my Savior, Jesus Christ. I cannot deny the guidance that I have felt from them nor am I ashamed to admit that I am where I am because of the blessings that I have received from them. I have not done this alone.
2. My family. From the 5 precious people that I share a home with to the many, many other members of my family- again, I have not made it this far alone. I feel so blessed and lucky to be surrounded by so many amazing people.
3. My friends. I love you all so much and I am so grateful to have each and every one of you in my life.
