This morning I shared a post on Facebook that read:
The Devil whispered in my ear,
“You’re not strong enough to withstand the storm.”
Today I whispered in the Devil’s ear,
“I am the storm.”
Reading that, I was reminded of how fierce I felt when I went through breast cancer the first time. I was going to battle. We had a plan and I was going to make that cancer suffer before kicking it to the curb! Oh what a different battle this time around.
The plan is vague. We’ll try this and that until it doesn’t work and then we’ll try something else. There have been side effects, set backs and treatment changes. I’m a trooper and I’ll do what needs to be done, but today I realized something… I need my “fight” back! I had just sort of accepted this latest diagnosis as how things were gonna be until I get my miracle. Well, today I’ve decided that this cancer is going to suffer too! The boxing gloves are back on! I AM THE STORM.
That being said, I have a favor to ask. Many of you helped me create a playlist last time that I listened to throughout chemo and beyond. I loved that playlist. I found strength and comfort in those songs... my fight songs. Well, I need a NEW fight song playlist!! That’s where YOU come in, My Battalion! Send me your songs! Help me get my fight back and keep it going until we get that miracle…until we have victory!
PS. No Taylor Swift allowed and we don’t need the obvious “Fight Song”.
Love you guys!! Keep prayin’ and watch the miracle!!
