Hi all, has it really been about one month since I have posted?  I bet you are all wondering what I am doing!  I am just overwhelmed with thanksgiving.  How appropriate for the season.  I have one more boost left, then radiation is complete!  I have been soooo blessed as I have had very few side effects.  I have some redness and a little blistering in the radiation area, and sometimes a little pain on the inside as all the tissue in there is stirred up and angry.  Overall, this has been easier than I expected.  I have had a great breast care team and I can't say enough about all the wonderful support I have had through all of this!!!  I am thankful for my family, friends and I am thankful to be in a country where health care is prevalent.  I am also thankful to be in a position to have the job and healthcare coverage that I have.  I am continually humbled by the care for my well being both physically and mentally that my coworkers have given me through out this process!  Thank you sooo much!!!

I am most thankful that we have an amazing God who watches over us.  In the beginning I mentioned that He let me know that "He had this one" and I truly believe that he has kept that promise to me.  As this had not been an easy journey, I still feel like He has held my hand and has continually sent people in my life to remind me of how much He loves us and how even the smallest detail about little me He has given attention to.

As we get ready to celebrate the holidays, I am reminded of the Israelites as the journeyed out of Egypt.  God provided for every man, women and child.  There was manna from the sky, water that came out of a rock, and their clothes and sandals never wore out!  As God provided for them then, He still provides for us now.

Matthew 6:26  Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not of more value than they?  (33) But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.  (34) Therefore do not worry about tomorrow.....

What a great passage of God's character and love for us.  I have referenced it so you can look up and read all of chapter 6 as it is an amazing promise of God's love and provision.  He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.(Heb 13:8)

Thanks again for all the great support!

Love, Mona
