9 months ago Mary finished chemo.
I still wonder about all the unknowns. I still have to go back and read my previous blogs and journals to continue to process. I still have moments that blindside me and I see stars for just a minute.
But mostly, I’m just thankful.
Thankful for the fact that she is still here. Thankful that she knows my kids. Thankful my kids know her. Thankful that it healed her. Thankful that it healed her marriage. Thankful for all it taught me. Thankful for what I’m still learning. Thankful to be a small part of an amazing story. Thankful I get to share it with others. Thankful that the irony of cancer being one of the greatest things to happen to my sister is a perfect representation of my God, how He works, and how He uses all things for His good.
9 months ago, her body began to physically heal. But on that sunny day in April God began a much greater healing in her heart. And because of that, I’m thankful for her cancer.
