One year ago today,

I came home from a trip over the mountains with my Aunt and my two boys. One year ago today, my husband had the horrific task of telling me our lives would never be the same. One year ago today I watched my children sleep all night for fear I would never see them grow up. One year ago today, I wished I had never gone to the doctor. One year ago today, I thought I was never going to see.......today. My body is free of the cancer. The depth of love in my marriage is greater than I ever could have imagined when I walked down the aisle 14 years ago. My relationships with my family and friends were strained and florished all in the same year. I saw my boys turn 3 and 1. My husband agreed to go to Disneyland and Las Vegas and, if you know him, that is something I never thought I would live to see even when I didn't have cancer. One year ago today - what a difference a year makes.
