I was in church yesterday thinking about how blessed I truly am. I have my reconstruction surgery coming up on September 9th and my sister is flying down from Canada. I could not be more thankful to have her come. Since my mom is gone, I really wanted her here deep down in my heart and I am so thankful that she is coming. More then I can really even explain……….
Even more importantly then that, my husband Aaron……….he will be here for me, he will pray for me, encourage me and take care of me, the way he always does. He is just so amazing and loves me so much and it shows with everything he does for me and the boys. His work has been so wonderful, allowing him to be able to work from home so that Aaron can do his work, and make sure I’m okay. Not many men would do that and I know that. Not many men would do that with a smile or without question – he does. Not many men would do whatever it took to make sure his wife had everything she needs – he will.
When God brought us together, He knew exactly the right mate I would need for my entire life, not just for that period of time. God already knew there would be trials and ups and downs and Aaron and I have worked through each of them together because we put God first. That’s what makes us strong and that’s what will continue to get us through anything.
My heart is so full of love and thankfulness and pure gratitude for what God has blessed me with. My wonderful husband and my healthy beautiful boys. So, I have to deal with a small thing like breast cancer, so what? It could be so much worse on so many levels. That’s why I choose to be happy. That’s why I choose to be thankful for each day and each moment. That’s why I choose a positive attitude and to see the good in every situation. That is what will change your life, your choices – and I choose to be grateful and to praise God through my storms. Thank you for everything you have given me.
