If anyone is struggling right now read on. On Halloween God blessed me w/ a little extra time to take a bike ride on a very warm day for Oct. 31. Being 8 1/2 yrs out from my brain tumor diagnosis & chemo, I still have hormone inconsistencies which can leave me quite fatigued every once in a while. Well, it was one of those days on Halloween. I knew I was going a bit slower than normal. I got to the hill that I hate and I didn’t have MY “normal strength & power”. I go “geez why am I so tired, frustrated?” Well God put me in my place. He goes ” It doesn’t matter why, slow down & enjoy my view.” So I listened & had to take to heart what I instill in my clients. I slowed down, took a few extra pictures. (most of you know that is my hobby) saw some things I normally don’t. Smelled the fall leaves (you know stop & smell the roses!) So that day it wasn’t about how hard I could go but how healthy I could be in that moment in & on God’s terms. I will never be “where I was prior to chemo” but I have learned to love & embrace where I am as God’s child. It isn’t about who has the best butt or biceps when we meet our heavenly father. It is about that we respected & loved ourselves & are faithful to what God has for us in our relationship with him. Feeling strong in my faith which in turn makes me strong in “his” body he gave me.
