Yes, indeed, I’m one fortunate woman, sharing my story and my joy with y’all today. Four years ago right about now, a neurosurgeon and his team took a buzz saw to my skull and then a scalpel to my brain. Later he visited me in the night and delivered the news that the tumor they removed was malignant and I had a fairly serious form of brain cancer. Waiting daughters, family and friends had already been given information and the stats were not great; but the clinical world leaves out a huge piece and that piece is a fairly major game-changer. My Father had plans and as He says in His Book, (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV) “I know the plans I have for you … plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Those plans included handling this tumor and four years later, I surely do have hope and a future and I’m on a mission to share the blessings and the joy! I am well, most content and because I can, I’m heading out into the sunshine on this beautiful Sunday in April, 2010.
