Fulled Up With Love

I am nearing the point in my journey where I believe that cancer was the best thing that ever happened to me. I am forever changed. I am forever a better person for what I went through. I view the world through a different camera lense. Am I glad I had cancer? No, I am not glad it happened to me. I still wish God could have caused this transformation through more positive events but I know that having cancer was probably the only way He could think of that would make me STOP in my own tracks. One of my favorite movies is "Queen", which was an offshoot of "Roots". I will never forget Halle Berry's line near the end, when Queen and her husband were rocking on the porch and she said "I'm just fulled up with love". That's how I feel. I have so much love in my heart! More than I ever did before cancer struck. I love every one of you that take time to read my blog. I love all the people that have reached out to me in the past year. I love all my babies at work and I love my job. I love the school my children attend. I love my parish family and I love my Mom, Dad, and all my sisters. I love my husband and most of all I love my children more than I could ever express.
I love life.

What an awesome post to read for Thanksgiving!

Positive events can be taken for granted, it's the tough stuff that really makes you grateful.

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving, it's the best holiday!

I'm thankful that we know you.

Ain't it the truth. Everything is so much better, and the things that would upset me "before" I just chuckle at now. Every day is sweet and I feel so lucky, not only to have gottent through this but to have had this awakening!
