a subject I don't talk about

If you have noticed on facebook this week, it's all about the bra color. Took me a while (and a news article) to understand what was going on.

I haven't had much time for facebook.. so I didn't pay much attention till I read this article:

or please read: here

My sister died at 34 of breast cancer.
At 41 I survived ovarian. (that is the first time I have written "survived" instead of "had"). I had it, I got thru it, I guess you would say I survived it.

After 12 years I still pray every day that neither my girls or I will fall victim to breast (or ovarian) cancer. ever.

Cancer was a spiritual experience. Not one that was fun, or easy or taken lightly. It made me a different person. Hopefully for the better. The little annoyances of life are just not worth worrying about. Family is. Good Health is. Time together is. Relationships are. Eternity is.

The pitty party is OVER and I am excited because.......... if you haven't heard..................
WITHIN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS, I AM GOING TO BECOME A NANA!!!!!

Congratulations, Grandma! You are going to LOVE this role.

I had no idea you were an ovarian cancer survivor. Wow. That's a tough one, but you came out on top, and that tells me you are not only a remarkable person but a fighter.

Good for you, Lisa. I'm glad you are healthy and happy and soon to become a grandma! It is absolutely THE BEST.
