I could not be more excited and blessed.  Today when I walk out of here, I am done.  When I start feeling better from this treatment, I will continue to feel better.  This makes me SMILE!!!  Don't get me wrong, I am not looking forward to this week but it definitely makes it more bearable.

This morning I was praying with my dear friend, Cree, over the phone and I was suddenly swept away with gratitude hence the title of this post.  I was literally brought to some the biggest tears that I have had since this all started.  I am so thankful for not only the reason above but so many more so I think the best way to write this post, is too list them.

My gratitude comes from:

Cree and the way that she has conitnually prayed for me and my family, how she prayed with me every Monday before my treatment.  Also the continued care and love she brings to our family.

My kids and the way that God has touched them through this process, this is text I got form her this morning after drying up tears, they definitely started flowing again:
     "Ry just asked me out of the blue, Sissy do you wanna pray with me for mom's last treatment?" And of course I said yes then he held my hand and lead us through a prayer for u. :)"

Amy M. for the way she has taken on my meal schedule, going shopping with me, loving me and my family, and praying continually for us.

My grandmother Annie for being here for both my first and last treatments and for continually lifting us up in prayer.  Her love for my kids is amazing!

My 2 aunts (at least I call them aunts) in Texas who have continually prayed, messaged me and supported me throughout this process.

The cards and letters and messages from all the AMAZING people in my life...they truly have been an major encouragement and not a single one of them has gone unappreaciated.  TRULY!

Each and every person that spent the weeks of my treatments with me, Amy T for loving me and my family, Aunt Julie for enduring my emergency room scare and being with my kids through the process, Micah and the kids for keeping my kids entertained and me.  I love each and every one of you. 

Grace, you are amazing and have done so much for me and my family...I can not even list it all.  God truly blessed us by bringing you into our lives. 

The meals, each and every one of them, and each and every person that took the time to prepare and deliver them to us.  They were all delicious and I truly could not have done all of this without them.  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

The Centennial football moms and all the groceries that they have delivered during the weeks of my treatments.  You guys are amazing!

My mom and dad for all the help with moving, working on the house, transportation of kids, prayers, love and support.

My brother and sister in law for the laughter, prayer and support through this all.  Rides for the kids and for Miss Daisy.

My church, bible study friends, co workers and camp families that have supported and prayed for me throughout the process.

So many many more family and friends that have done lots of praying.  

 Mik, you have been incredibly helpful, supportive and wonderful beyond your years throughout this process and I love you so much and I am so proud of you.

Kade, Ry, Tucker and Ady thank you for being so patient and supportive of me. 

My husband for loving me unconditionally through this all!

His office for being so understanding and supportive throughout.

There is so much more I am thankful for and I wish I could list every person and every thing but if I did, it would completely bore you all to death so just know that my heart is overflowing with gratitude.

God because " With man this is impossible, but with God, all things are possible!"  Mark 10:27

Where we go from here:
I come back on Thursday for fluids and Neurlasta shot.  I then will get a scan in a couple weeks and then see the doctor a week after that.  He will then tell me when my next scan and bloodwork will be.  We move forward.....



  1. I remember the elation walking out the door on the last day of treatment! It's incredible! And you keep looking back for a while thinking about all you've endured and overcome, but eventually you look forward. And then you just learn to keep looking forward to the brighter days ahead! So grateful for your enduring and cheerful heart- God is SO good in the midst of this, isn't He? Celebrating with you today! Woo Hoo!!

  2. We praise God and are so thrilled by how he has answered prayer! Jeromy and Kim

  3. LOVE YOU!!

    PS. If you ever win an Academy Award you don't have to be nervous about writing your acceptance speech. Just make it like this post :-)

  4. What an awesome and fun post! I am so happy for you and your family and it is evident that this is such a huge victory and Christ has brought you through it! Can't wait for you to feel like yourself again without side effects! I'm sure through your valley of cancer, which you probably wouldn't want to go through again, you are a changed woman and much closer to Him. Praise God! Still praying for you! Alyssa
