Fight Against Cancer

In 1999, I joined a liquid nutritional company.

I realized even then, we were not getting everything we need from food, and I was no longer in my invincible 20’s. I was with that company, and enjoyed their products for many years.

When it was time to leave my marriage, I gave up this business to leave. I let it go, but did not enjoy running out of product. This product brought my body up to it’s optimum health, and gave me a feeling of well-being.

Striking out on my own with God, my daughter, and going through an stressful divorce, I really missed that product.

In March of 2016, a dear friend of mine that I met through this company, contacted me. (God works through people.) My position in the company had expired, but she was offering me to join her, and bring me back in. I had a lump growing in my breast, so it was time for this friendship, and product.

God knew I would need it too, and I rejoined the company in March.

March was when I went to the doctor to confirm the lump. My doctor lined up a series of other doctors for me to meet to receive the medical attention we thought necessary.

It all happened so fast that March was a complete blur to me. Everyone was recommending Chemo, and I was looking at them like they were an alien. I remember telling one doctor, “I have spent half my life pouring health, and good things into my body, and you want to shoot me full of poison?”

It was not pretty, but the cancer was aggressive, so Chemo it was.

This product has been a Godsend. I know it has played a huge part in my well being during Chemo. With my body taking in relative poison, to kill the lump, Body Balance poured in goodness. My energy level, and clarity of mind have improved immensely.

My doctor even told me, “I don’t know what you’re doing, but your blood cell count looks better at the end of Chemo, than at the beginning.” That is not the norm. I give the glory to God and Body Balance.

My friend that reached out to me to rejoin, knows I’m a single Mama, and she can relate to that. She helped educate me about Cancer, and Chemo, and been a huge support.

If you, or someone you love, would like to try a bottle, connect with me at Letitgocoach@gmail.com. It will make a huge difference in their fight against Cancer.

Putting It Off

I finished going through my archives.

I stopped at 2019, but will glance through those as well. Reading each post from 2014-2018 was like reliving Breast Cancer, and seeing how much I loved Mr. Smith, all over again.

It was worth going through twice.

I no longer cringe when people read my archives. I know what’s there, and am happy with the woman who emerged. Going through my archives is something I’ve put off doing for a long time.

I’m done putting things off.

did

It’s funny how they start off small.

Like, taking a shower. I can put something in front of that small task all day long, until I’m sitting here at night with no shower. Running the vacuum. Every time the sunlight hits the floor I see the dog hair, but continue on with my day.

I got my nose pierced. A small thing I’ve been putting off.

Doing the big things, but ignoring the small ones. It’s time to spend the next 30 days cultivating self trust. When a small thing needs to be done, I’ll just do it, and write it down once it’s complete. Instead of a ‘to-do list’, it will be a ‘done’ list.

No more putting it off.

Worth the Wait

The candle display looked sparse.

My friend who owns the local Shoppe had placed an order for new ones, but they hadn’t come in yet. The display looked like it was in waiting.

I went back to the Shoppe a few days later, but still no candles. There was a holdup in the shipment, but I could wait. If there’s one thing Breast Cancer taught me is how to wait. ‘You wait patiently Barb, holding the highest expectation of outcomes.’

There’s goodness in the waiting.

More days passed and I called the Shoppe. They had located the shipment and it was to arrive that day or the next at the latest. A couple of days later, I entered the Shoppe to find a breathtaking display. My friend had ordered so many Voluspa candles, the candle display spilled onto other displays.

It seemed like a natural effect for this much beauty.

I’ve written quite a bit about waiting. We tend to wait for the big things in life, but it’s an accumulation of little things that equal big. The day comes where you sit down to write a Blog, and there’s this knowing that every little thing has been worth the wait.

The Dentist’s Chair

After I stood up from the Dentist’s chair, his hygienist went over a list of horrific things that could occur. I listened, but didn’t accept what she was saying personally.

The same thing happened during Breast Cancer treatment. The doctor’s went over a list of side effects that could happen. I tentatively listened, but didn’t receive any of it.

A friend had surgery and the doctor told him depression could set in afterwards. If he received those words, he might feel depressed.

Words are like seeds that take root.

Don’t be fertile ground for negativity.

Even in the Dentist’s chair.

God’s Not Done

I often ponder God’s plan for my life. It would be comforting to know I’m on the right path and if I’m really doing what God wants me to do.

Well, there’s one thing I do know. Either way, He’s going to use it for our good and His glory. What we do is all part of a greater plan.

Recently, I was thinking of my Chemo treatments for Breast Cancer. It was scary enough having Breast Cancer, but Chemo was the worst physical experience I’ve ever been through. Toward the end of my treatment I wasn’t sure I was going to make it, but God pulled me through.

It felt like Chemo was killing me, but God was using Chemo to kill the Cancer, not me.

Looking back I can say, “Breast Cancer was the best thing that ever happened to me.” It brought me heart to heart with the King himself.

I woke up this morning at 5:30 am.

It’s a new day, so God’s not done.
