Happy Cinco de Mayo!! I am counting my blessings. Seven years ago today, I woke up in a hospital bed, having had surgery on my thyroid the day before. A few days later I would learnthat the half they removed had a cancerous tumor. The other half of the thyroid would come out five months later and once again, contained a cancerous tumor.
Thankfully, it was Stage 1. Thankfully, they caught an awfully slow-moving form of cancer verrrry early. Thankfully, it appears to have disappeared, but I won’t know that fully for another three years, when I hit the 10-year point. (If thyroid cancer comes back, it is most likely between the 5-10 year mark.)
So, today I celebrate beating cancer and in honor of the Mexicans beating the French in a key battle in 1862, we dine on Mexican food tonight!! I have gone a little poca loca by hosting a weekday lunch with some amazing women for the past five years … but since this year the holiday is on a weekend, we’ll be dining at one of our favorite restaurants in town with close friends. Can’t wait!
How are you celebrating God’s blessings today??
