So true

When I worked at First Baptist Church of Eupora, I would joke around saying, “I get paid to be nice from 8 a.m. until noon and 1-4 p.m. During that lunch hour or after work, you never know what you are going to get!”

Yesterday, my mother-in-law bought me this awesome book, “Pretending to Be a Normal Person Day After Day is Exhausting.” So funny!

When I was first diagnosed with cancer, I tried to keep up with my “normal” life. I was refusing to accept this as a thing. Three and a half years into this cancer journey, that title is so true! Normal is exhausting!



I survived. TOTAL TORTURE! I HATE face masks! But hopefully, no one at chemo was exposed to my chest cold, and maybe I didn’t catch what they may have. So ready for summer and the end of cold and flu season!

Peace be with you

It is another chemo day, and I have a cold. Wearing a face mask is HORRIBLE, but I am trying to protect others from my “sick cooties” while trying to stay sane!!!!

When I was little, I had asthma and during high school, I had allergy-induced bronchial asthma. (I am sure my classmates remember my horrible cough.) Something about wearing a face mask gives me that feeling of not being able to breathe-very similar to my asthma issuses. It is everything in my power to stay seated right now and not run outside for a breath of fresh air! (I felt like that most of my elementary and high school years too!) Luckily, I have outgrown a lot of those allergies and only deal with the cough and trouble breathing when I am sickly.

But #GODISGOOD because He is helping me to find my peace (which is taking incredible willpower) and remember to take it one life-giving breathe at a time!
