Nurturing, loving, and kind
She lived in a breathtaking house overlooking the mountains
Adorned like a princess with beautiful handsewn dresses she designed just for me
Mixing giggles and laughter as we baked sablé cookies
Magical tea parties for two
Girls’ time afternoons of pampering
Exquisite manicures and makeup
Summer after summer spent at her home
Treating me like one of her own
Lillie, my beautiful Aunt
I am forever
My daughter, Angelica, is the miracle I believe in.
(This miracle of mine is also quite a humorous girl. If you need more laughter in your life, please check out her funny blog, Comically Quirky!)
Some people come and go in our lives.
Others come to stay.
Some people leave a mark in our lives.
Others leave a trail.
Most people just pass through.
There are those people though,
No matter where we are in life,
Inspire us to be what we are today.
Thank you, DAD!
A setback that landed me in the ICU incidentally led me on the path to Dr.C.
Dr. C, the amazing oncologist whose calm demeanor somehow reassured me that I’m in good hands.
I had no fear.
I somehow knew I was going to get better, with his guidance.
The only way I can describe it is like a messenger was sent to give me hope.
I was willing to try anything Doctor C. recommended.
And I did.
My trust in this doctor and his continuous encouragement at my lowest low, along with his belief in me, helped me realize that there is a greater force out there.
More powerful than fear.
More formidable than weakness.
More prominent than self-doubt.
This journey I had embarked on was indeed an enlightening and spiritual passage.
The power of family, friendship and prayers guided me through that journey.
By the grace of God, I found rejuvenation and the healing has begun.
Life is not only about conquering cancer or any other illnesses, it is about conquering our fears and living life.
Making each day count.
Looking forward, not backward.
Appreciating what we have.
And simply being thankful for every new day given to us, for each day is a gift to be cherished and treasured.
Wishing everyone a joyous holiday season.
Thank you all for joining me on my journey.
