I've always loved the above quote, but I especially love it this year.
My spring was entirely taken over by my diagnosis, the hugely oppressive, chest crushing weight of the unknown, and then major surgery and recovery.
But having completed my final chemo treatment yesterday - yay! - the hardest part of my battle is over.
Even though I know I've got a couple more weeks of foggy chemo yuck ahead of me, at this very moment, I'm feeling light as a feather.
The black cloud I've had hovering over me is gone.
Our gross, rainy weather has cleared and the skies are a brilliant blue.
My beloved mountains are covered in a beautiful, fresh snow.
The leaves are turning.
Life is good.
That bears repeating, people.
Two very dear friends of mine sent me this gorgeous tote to use as my chemo bag.
It's imprinted with the words, "Trust the Journey".
Trust the journey.
While the journey is still far from over, taking it one step at a time with my faith, family and friends, I know I can face what still lies ahead.
I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
I know I'm going to.
