I Wear Pink: 31 Days of a Journey With Breast Cancer

     I am excited to link up with the Nester for her 31 Day Challenge to write about a topic for, yup, you guessed it, 31 days.  I considered many different topics, but decided to write about my journey with breast cancer.   God reminded me, that I had 30 days of radiation, that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and that He may use something that I write to comfort someone else.   I have to admit, I am a little nervous.  Breast cancer is private, personal and messy.  And....I'm a little intimidated excited about writing for 31 days, too.
     In January 2009 my New Year’s resolution was fairly simple.  It was “Make room.”  Make room for Jesus in my heart, my marriage, with my family and friends, in my home and in my job.  I had vague thoughts about cleaning up the house and organizing myself better.  Instead God answered my prayers with a diagnosis of breast cancer on February 18.  I discovered as I sat in doctor’s offices, went for treatments, and even took naps that some things weren’t as important as I had previously thought they were.  I was also reminded that the really important things, aren’t things - they are the people God has given us to love.

Thanks for sharing so openly with this series! I know people who have dealt with or are dealing with breast cancer, but I have never felt comfortable enough to ask for a lot of details. I think you sharing this could help a lot of people learn how to support friends and loved ones! Thanks!
