Easter Resurrections & Hope

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend with family and friends.  

We attended church service yesterday to give our thanks for the many blessings that we continually receive.  It was a joyous morning of sunshine and warmer temperatures, but more than that, it was a time to celebrate my husband's return to good health.

I continue to call him "A Miracle Man" as anyone who knows us personally will also agree to that title. 

As I sat in church yesterday morning and listened to the all time favorite hymn of "Christ the Lord is Risen Today"....I also felt that our family has had a resurrection of sorts with my husband now feeling so well and being able to return to work again.

One very important lesson to be learned in all of this is that you can just "Never Quit" when the going gets rough.  For other cancer patients who may be reading this, please remember to keep those words first and foremost in your mind.  Living with cancer is a very difficult road to follow, but despite the many obstacles you will encounter along the way, please remember that this too shall pass if you are determined to not let it become the main focus. 

I was given these beautiful Easter lilies as a gift this weekend.  They are more than just a gift however, but they are a symbol of  "HOPE" in life's deepest despair.  So, if you are going through a difficult time right now, please think of the lilies, daffodils or tulips that are beginning to appear in our season of spring, and
