I won't just survive
Oh, you will see me thrive
Can't write my story
I'm beyond the archetype
I won't just conform
No matter how you shake my core
'Cause my roots, they run deep, oh
Oh, ye of so little faith
Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in my veins
I know it, I know it
And I will not negotiate
I'll fight it, I'll fight it
I will transform
When, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, "You're out of time,"
But still I rise
This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in
Think again
Don't be surprised
I will still rise
I must stay conscious
Through the madness and chaos
So I call on my angels
They say
Oh, ye of so little faith
Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in your veins

Mary That gave me goose bumps! Wow! So good to hear from you.. Just love you! big hugs and love and always prayers Sabina

5 Years! All Clear!

Good day All my Ass Kickers!

I am a few days late but here I am! 5 years after the Big C was diagnosed! 5 years!  So much happens in 5 years! So let's run it down. Diagnosed, mastectomy, Chemo, sold a house, bought a house, reconstruction, necrosis disaster, regret, anger, healed, thought was in induced menopausal, partied, GOT PREGNANT! Had a beautiful baby boy, driving school, got licence, did I mention I'm a MOM! Oh not to mention DR appointments 3 times every 3 months.

A lot happens in 5 years. People who ask me what I do, haven't a clue! It's been a long journey, a lot of forgiveness, a lot of fear. Not one day goes by or will go by were I don't think of what I have gone through. I will never be the same. My heart breaks at the same time as fills with such love. The inner struggle of the possibity of this reacurring nightmare and living my life for me. I have been so blessed and I try to think back to 5 years ago to a time that was so bleak and remind myself that it can be worse. Life is what we make it. Be kind. Forgive. And smile.

The fear it instills into people. Chemo & how life changes with one word.

There are so many good people in the world. So many angels.

Spread the word about breast cancer & to be positive.

Just being there. A phone call, a visit even if I don't seem in the mood.

Sleep, water, and I had really bad taste in my mouth and the best thing was having Freezies in the freezer.

CRY! Never hold in your emotions. even if you need to just get in a shower and cry your eyes out. Also, talk to someone when you need to.
