Today is the day...

I have had so many emotions going on in my head this morning it is unreal.  I'm having a bit of separation anxiety due to the "girls" leaving home.  I know this has to be; but, man it is a tough thing to accept sometimes. This week has went by so quickly that everything seems like a blur. I go to the hospital at 12:30 p.m., surgery is at 2:30 p.m. and should be done at 4:30 or so.  My hubby and daughter will be there and Tammy will be sending an update to someone who will update the Cricut Boards.  She does not blog so not sure she will be able to update here today.  I will try and get this updated as soon as I can.

A friend sent me the following words yesterday and another has offered to make me some cuts from the Pink Journey cart and I'm going to put it in a frame as a reminder of the strength that you all have given me.

Cancer is so limited...
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the Spirit.

The way I figure it, Cancer is not good for much of anything so I am best to just get rid of it.  Before I start getting around here to get ready to go, I wanted to stop in and thank you all so much for the prayers and uplifting messages and converstations.  They have meant a lot to me.  Today the tears have came full force and have gone as quickly as they came. My faith and prayers are consistent and true. This will be over soon and I'll be back on here posting and creating as soon as I possibly can.  I will be thinking of all of the wonderful hugs I have received from far and wide today and those thoughts and the love of my family and friends will get me through this.

Oh Yeah... What are they thinking making me go without coffee for so long... ewwwww!  It ain't gonna be pretty!  First thing I'm asking for when I'm done with surgery - is COFFEE!!!!

Keep Smiling!!! Love you all - HUGS

Bren...keeping you in thoughts and prayers. So thankful that this huge part of your battle is almost behind you. I am picturing you now...sitting in your hospital bed with one of those "lovely" hospital gowns on and a huge cup of steaming hot coffee in your hand as you think about what your next crafting project will be!

My prayers are with you! I want to give you hope in a couple of facts. My mother is a survivor over 20 years now, a cousin 10 years and my grandmother lived over 30 years after her surgery and died of old age. None of their cancers returned and they all had masectomies. Life went on and I really think they cherish each moment more. Yes their is hope and there is life and there is joy and healing. I hope this encourages you as your body is now entering the healing stage. You are a BEAUTIFUL woman and thank you for sharing your journey.
