Finishing Radiation

Well I know I am officially a slacker.  Seems like life has gone into fast forward these past few months.  So I finished radiation June 28.  Which was actually a day earlier than I thought I was gonna finish so that was awesome.  I did however get extremely burned my last week of radiation but as far as fatigue goes I can't really complain about it.  The people at radiation were amazing and always in a good mood.  I don't know that there enough words for the nurses and doctors that work in oncology offices.  To me they are angels and I am sooo thank ful for them. You'd think when I was done with radiation that I'd be over whelmed with joy and dont' get me wrong I mean I was happy but after leaving radiation for the last time my emotions got the best of me and I broke down in the car.  Radiation was pretty much a cake walk compared to chemo....well actually any thing is a cake walk compared to chemo lol.  So to celebrate I went out to eat (and yes u guessed it we ate SUSHI!! lol)  and celebrate with a few close friends which was awesome. 
It's funny how God puts people in your life at just the right time and just when you need him.  He truly is an all knowing and understanding God.  Here's a pic of me on my last radiation day....not that great of a picture of me but I just love the staff at Dr. Patel's....they are amazing :)

There Once Was a Girl..........

There was
a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She
hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could only see
the world, I will marry you.'

One day,
someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages
came off, she was able to see everything, including her

He asked
her,'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The
girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The
sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected
that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life
led her to refuse to marry him.

Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her
saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before
they were yours, they were mine.'

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Life Is a Gift

Today before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone who has nothing to eat..

Before you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion.

Today before you complain about life - Think of someone who went too early to heaven..

Before whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and think: you're alive and still
around.. :)
