Two Anniversaries on December 30th

Today I have two anniversaries I’m celebrating. Hooray!

December 30, 2012 marks 23 years of marriage to my best friend and love of my life through the sunshine and storms.

I wish my cancerversary also didn’t fall on the same exact day as the other. Those memories aren’t happy like my wedding day and marriage but I made it through the toughest time in my life and grew alot through it so that’s a great thing I can be glad about.

Two years ago today was my Well Woman Checkup right before I was supposed to have an anniversary lunch date with my DH. That day my GYN felt the largest of the lumps of multifocal breast cancer and then I went directly from there for my annual mammogram. I was sporadic about self breast exams and regret that didn’t catch it myself earlier. Exactly one year from the month I had gone from a “stable/normal” mammo (fibrocystic breast disease which had not changed) to one the radiologist described as “ominous” ( which turned out to be Stage 3A). That day was such a shockaroo.

I’m very thankful to God to be alive and doing very well as far as I know.

Here’s to a healthy 2013!ย  Help yourself to a piece of virtual anniversary cake: my favorite kind to make and eat. The base is a slab of seedless watermelon topped with a variety of fruit: guilt-free delishiousness!

  1. Nobody will understand a person who fights with cancer better than you. Always remember that God never gives us more that we can endure. You could endure this battle and now it is the time to help the lost. It is better to die of cancer and go to Heaven with Jesus than to die unsaved and with cancer. Reach to the people who fight with cancer but are not saved and need Jesus. Some of them will survive and walk with Jesus, some of them might leave this world and be with Jesus in His Paradise. Remember always that God choose strong women like you to win the lost ๐Ÿ™‚
