In 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Thymoma, a rare cancer. I call it The Nuisance. Now I am working to live each day "As If" - As if I am healed, as if I have no worries, as if I have no fear! This blog chronicles my journey through life and the lessons learned. What was meant to keep me down has given me wings!
Is there anything better than Friday?!?! How about a Friday when it is a little cold and drizzly outside and all you have on your agenda is to put on your cozy sweats and hangout out with your favorite people? That is a fabulous Friday in my book!
Friday is fantastic because you can look back on all you have finally finished during the week and look forward to a fun time with your family and friends! Fridays make me happy!
May your fabulous Friday be fantastically filled with family, friends and fun!

Don't you love days when God says, "Slow down and relax. This one is on me."? Snow days are just those kinds of days. It is as if everything is forced to come to a screeching halt and all your obligations are set aside to be replaced by rest, laughter, playing, reading and all those other things that you have pushed aside for too long. Suddenly your To Do list becomes reorganized and priorities shift from what you have to do to what you get to do. Just the physical beauty of such days makes me stop for a moment and take notice of the blessings around me. Each snowflake, so intricate, falls slowly to the ground. It is peaceful to watch and I begin to relax. As I think of the detail of each flake it is amazing to me that the creator takes time to manufacture each one individually even though they will only last such a brief time. I consider my life. He took that kind of care and more in the creation and design of my life, yet unlike the snowflake I am pressured to rush through life before it all melts away. I think I'll use some of this snow day to slow down and remember the things that matter. I will be grateful for my amazing family, be thankful for some time to be still, and curl up and relax. This one is on God!
