Farewell for Now
Well, the past three weeks have been eventful as I have not interacted with the WA community. I have discovered that I am facing many months of treatment for the "Big C." A biopsy shows a cancerous breast tumor, early stage, very treatable, but could mean a long program involving chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation. For a time, I will need to refocus my attention and energies elsewhere, so I have decided to suspend my involvement in WA until this is resolved.
For those who have faced, or will ever face a cancer diagnosis, I hope to encourage you. Do not let this evil disease be an elephant in the room. Pray against it, attack it by whatever means possible (treatment, diet, getting rid of stress in your life). In all this, I find much for which to be thankful: it was caught early, I have a very loving support system of family and friends, I have a great network of physicians and health professionals, and, most of all, I have a strong faith in the Creator, who makes all things new! His mercies are new every morning, and He gives strength for the journey.
I wish you all great success and fulfillment in your relationships.
