Wow. What a difference a month can make. Reading that last blog is a little uncomfortable - I almost want to delete it. I hate having negative posts - but thats just how it was. But God has been faithful once again. I'm not 100%, but I'm getting there. My strength is returning. My energy level is improving daily. In fact, I just returned last night from South Dakota; my first trip and first Ladies' Retreat since all this cancer business began. It is amazing how one dip in the road can change the whole course of things. My life seems so much richer and vibrant these days. During the past couple of months I have had a lot of time to think about my life - goals - dreams and accomplishments. One of the things I have wanted to do for years is to further my education. To make a long story short, I am now a student (having just completed the summer semester) at Everglades University in Boca Raton, FL. I am pursing my Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Alternative Medicine. This will take me over three years to complete, but I am thrilled to have started. Its an online degree - so it works with my schedule. I have always been interested in holistic health, essential oils, natural healing and intervention... so, I am benefiting as I am learning.
And so, I am a grateful soul today. Thankful for my health, strength and life. I'm enjoying my husband, my children and grandchildren... my home and friends - more than ever. I am counting my blessings - not sure why God is so good to me; yet totally grateful that He is!
