As I prepare to send my babies back to school in just two more days the anxiety that often accompanies life is starting to make its unwelcomed entrance into my heart and mind.  "What-if" and "how-are-we-going-to-do-this" become my daily cries.  

This year I am choosing differently.  The journey that a cancer family takes has many turns, bumps, hills and valleys.  I think one of the hardest legs of the journey is acceptance.  You come to point where you have to draw a line in the sand.  You have a choice to stay where you are emotionally, mentally and physically or you can move on.  It's really that simple.  There are no other choices.  

Our family chooses to move on.  

It's not easy and most days we have set backs but its an emotional battle that you have to accept to fight every. single. day.

Second grade is here and we are going to fight.  HARD.  Maybe this really is the moment for which we were created.  

Whatever you are fighting today, whatever you are facing..But God!  Not you, not your spouse, not your kids.. but God. 

"Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken." Psalm 62:6

    I feel God just spoke through you to me. We are all in this together! Thankfully, we have Christ by our sides on this difficult journey.

  3. But God! Thank you for this reminder. I am the queen of "laying it at the feet of Jesus, then jerking it right back up again" and again and again and again...
