Ode to 53!

Ode to 53!

It's official
Another year has passed
I breathe a sigh of relief
Long at last

How I have wondered
How many more will there be
So I relish the time
Whether I'll have, 1, 2, or 3

But here I am
I must stay in the now
Because none of us know
The way of our Tao

I celebrate with love
With sunshine and light
My stubbornness paid off
With one hell of a fight

So Happy Birthday to me
This is definitely the prize
I'll focus my best
On nothing but BLUE SKIES

My 2 year Lumpiversary!

Call me crazy, but I'm not the only breast cancer survivor that has temporal markers in which we make notable observance. Almost like a holiday on a calendar (except that cancer is certainly no freakin' holiday!), most every cancer survivor recalls the exact moment in which they found a lump, knew something was amiss or 'just knew.' So, I know that I am no different from my fellow warriors.

For me, this day will be etched in my memory, well, FOREVER! I recall every detail of the tickle that I felt on this day back in 2011. I still like to credit my dad from above for his antics yet again for helping me find that sucker (thanks dad!).

It's been one hellova ride to say the very least. But again, I'm exceedingly grateful that what feels like just yesterday, was in reality, 2 years ago. And here I am, alive, and looking back at the day I began the third fight of my life.  Can I get an AAAAMEN!
