Caravan Sonnet: 366 Days Later

366 Days Later

Yesterday, a year ago today, I went into surgery where I was told that there was a very high and probable chance that we would find that I had stage IV Cancer (You can read more of the story HERE from last year) . I wouldn't know the results until I woke up as it was impossible to tell much from the size of the mass that was showing during the tests. 

There have been many, many, many scary times throughout this journey (including my diagnosis of skin Cancer almost five years ago), but heading into a surgery not knowing what would be found was definitely one of the most scary situations I have faced. 

Waking up and hearing the news that it was NOT Cancer was an unbelievable gift that I remain humbly grateful for. As I laid in the hospital bed last year at this time I remember thinking how overwhelmed I was at the good news after so many years of hearing bad health news. 

These past 366 days have been a beautiful gift that I don't take for granted. Everyday is truly a gift that I treasure. This health journey has continued to remind me to value each moment, love big, and live in grace. 

To you dear friends who are walking in difficult and dark times my heart breaks for you...may light flood your journey in new ways so the darkness disappears.
