I promise



I promise I'm not very different from you...I'm a Momma. I get up early to get the kids ready for school. I take care of my home. Laundry, cleaning, cooking, playing with the kids. Sweeping the floor a thousand times a day, after each meal, snack, and then another snack. I run the kids around with me wherever I go. We go grocery shopping and pick up an ice cream cone at Maceys (so I don't go completely crazy while shopping). We have play dates with other Mommas, and chat about our babies, our husbands, our lives...while our kids run wild. I'm really not to different. Please don't treat me different just because I have Cancer. The big "C" word... Don't get me wrong. I am better because of it. It has refined me as a person, my spirit, my life, and continues to do so. I am so blessed...Sometimes it takes difficult experiences in life to really "open" your eyes to what you have right in front of you...to help you change. That's how it has worked out for me. But really. I have good days like you, and bad days to. Hell, I cry when I'm happy and I cry when I'm sad. I cry because I'm in love...why hold it all in is my motto! I promise I'm not very different from you. I have a lot to talk about other then Cancer. Give me a chance and I'll talk your ear off! My name is Sarah. I am a child of God...it is so nice meeting you. xo

You mean I'm not the only one who cry daily for random and perfectly reasonable reasons. Sarah, I love you. You Rock!

I miss talking each others ears off and I love the things we have in common! Hope you are doing well in that far away land that you live in ;)

LOVE this post!! It really spoke to me today. I used to work with your sister Bonnie(love her). I found your blog through her. I was diagnosed with breast cancer last fall(at the age of 30) and really needed this post today. Thank you for your example and your continual strength in this fight. Your example, though I have never met you, has given me so much hope through this journey. Thank you so much!!

You are an amazing woman and most certainly a child of God! He uses you to encourage so very many others, not only those going through medical challenges, but also those who are not but need to learn to appreciate all that we are so very blessed with as well!

I. LOVE. YOU. Seriously. And I miss you terribly. As soon as my crazy life calms down, I will be bringing you dinner. I'll be in touch. xoxo
