“Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” – Denis Waitley

Last week I went for my first screening since the end of treatment and received a letter today that says, in part, “We are pleased to inform you that your recent screening showed no mammographic evidence of cancer.” !!!

I’m feeling surprised, relieved, thankful, giddy and weepy all at the same time! Mostly, I am grateful that just moments after diagnosis, it was as if God placed His hand on my back, replaced fear with acceptance and peace, and guided me gently through the journey.  It is true that healing is not the same as curing – that healing does, indeed, bring us “closer to our true self.”
