One Year Ago Today...

I went into the hospital with breast cancer and came out a few hours later cancer free!

As I look back on this journey with cancer, I have come to realize that we all make a mark on this world and that when something like cancer comes along, we rally together to help one another. I am still in shock when I look at the cards, emails, facebook comments, flowers, food, phone calls, visits, gifts, and all the other forms of expression of love and caring that I received during the year....

...and so it continues. Yesterday Lewis and Clark ran a marathon and asked me to walk the first lap with Bob, the superintendent, Cody (the marathon man who convinced me I needed a tattoo) and the sponsors of the event. I received a bouquet of pink roses from Bob, two pink bracelets from students, lunch from the office, a pink wax warmer from the fifth grade teachers, and cards and hugs from the students at school. One student gave me the pink tshirt I am wearing today to celebrate Pink Day and my one year anniversary!

To all of you who have continually loved me through this, I am blessed beyond measure. I thank God daily for each of you.
