After not feeling well all weekend, I was determined to make this week a good one! So Monday I woke to see my roommate off to work, and did just that. I went for a walk to Border's and then walked through the park on my way back. You know that saying "someone else is always a little worse than you" SO TRUE. It's amazing how many simple things we take for granted each and every day of our lives. While I was walking I was silently praying and observing simple miracles God gives us everyday. Look outside today and be thankful for beautiful things that you enjoy. It might be your favorite flowers, tree, or even simple sunshine. Be thankful for having the ability to walk and be able to see and enjoy those things, because honestly they are simply wonderful.
On kind of another note, spun from the walk, I am going to invest in a bike. I bet you guys are so excited to see my cute new bike riding the roads of Buckhead. I can't drive for 6 months due to seizures (stupid) and I am way to independent and stubborn to have to wait for people to drive me around. Of course I had no idea what kind of bike to even buy, I was looking at mountain bike, how was I was supposed to know? But with the help of a good friend we found a cute, "riding" bike. Of course I want pink and sparkly. I'll keep you posted on this adventure
The anxiety of Thursday is starting to slowly taking over my life. I stay up late, I woke up early, and basically I just do not sleep. The way feel is almost impossible to put into words. I am scared, but relieved. Anxious, and nervous, but also excitement to finally get the process started. I go today for an MRI and more Cat Scans. And then surgery tomorrow....EEKS!
I have a few requests. For those of you lifting me up in prayers, I know its human nature, even for me, to pray for selfish things like, no cancer. But, I ask that you pray for God's will, and pray more for acceptance, and patience for me this week and during this journey. Also pray for yourselves! Pray that you guys can all be strong for each other during this time, and be strong for me. I also wouldn't mind if you prayed that I lose as little hair as possible tomorrow hhaha, andddd maybe to be less stubborn. Thanks for keeping me in your prayers, its the greatest gift of all!!! Oh- and the baked goods have to stop. I have to honor of being the maid of honor in Laura and Michael's wedding in April, and I prefer not to be obese while standing on the alter! Thanks!
Thanks to Chloe, Casey, Michael, and Kevin for filling my apartment with beautiful flowers!!! AND.....
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHLOE!!!
