Savoring Moments

The third chemo treatment was much harder than the previous ones and it has taken me longer to recover. This week has been good, and I am so grateful for the days in between treatments when I can feel well and savor my moments.

Savor my little everyday moments…

I CHOOSE to savor my moments!

Typically in life we don’t choose to do things that are going to harm us, make us feel sick, cause us pain and anxiety,..and yet that is what it is like when you go through chemotherapy. On Monday I will walk through the doors of the cancer center knowing that when I’m done with the infusion, the next week or more I will be sick, in pain and have absolutely no energy.

It would be easy during the times when I am feeling well to dwell on what is to come, but I am choosing to savor my moments. It is in those moments that I am renewed with JOY!

James 1:2-4 “Consider it pure joy my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”

I have faith that God is always with me. He will be with me and hold me next week too.

That’s how I will persevere!
