Recently (OK, two days ago), I was told that I have breast cancer. My parents live in a very rural (but lovely) area, and I needed to go tell them about my diagnosis. As I was coming home from that trip, the thought popped into my head, “This has been another episode of Adventures In Hooterville.” After thinking about it for a bit, I decided that the pun was just too delicious, and that it would make a great title for a progress blog.
So there you have it. I hope to make this a space where I can update those who need/want it and hopefully inspire others with my journey. There will be humor, because that’s how I cope. It may be inappropriate at times. Oh, well… There will also likely be tears. Even though I am incredibly optimistic, and know that this is only a short detour on my scenic route through life, the thought of “the cancer”, as one friend calls it, has the ability to make the best of us a bit weepy at times. I am so blessed to have the most wonderful boyfriend in the world, and a great community of friends to walk this road with me. I am already seeing God at work through this, and look forward to more blessings along the way.
