...to catch up...

"God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble..." Ps. 46:1

My Mom read this verse to me yesterday... do I believe it? ... I falter many times, but know without a doubt that it is God who gets me through this trouble called cancer.

... chemo is VERY rough this time and knocks me back in the bed... BUT my results from the MRI taken on Monday(May 7)  shows that it has knocked the cancer back 25% !

...I'm on another 9 week cycle of chemo followed by another MRI praying it's knocked back further ~ gone preferably! ~ operable or more chemo.... I'm forced to take ONE day at a time, or my mind can't take it.

My family~friends have been amazing as they are on this journey with me ~ couldn't do it without them! Thank you for your prayers...

I still have my hair! and it's curly and all colors of the 'platinum' scale! I prayed I'd have hair for these events! Yes- the little things in life matter :)  We look forward to the end of the school year events with the major one being GRADUATION! Yes! Adeline and Madison will graduate on June 2nd! I've been their main teacher all 12 years and YEAH for the end! Dance recitals ~ family coming in ~ and summer sunshine!

  6. Oh Sallee....you have no idea how good it is to get an update! I literally woke up with you on my heart and mind this morning, the Lord asking me to pray for you :) I'm still praying hard for the Lord to knock that cancer out and even more to carry you so intimately close every single day.
    Hugs to you,

  12. You are in my thoughts and prayers so much of the time. Thank you for your update and sharing your heart with us. I just feel so blessed everytime E wears your creations and people tell me how beautiful she is in them. I am thankful for your blessing us! And it reminds me even more to pray, pray and pray some more for you and your precious family. I pray that the God of ALL creation flows over, around and through you with HIS healing power! In Jesus' precious name, Amen! Big Hugs!!

  13. Sally ~ you are, and will remain, in my thoughts and prayers. I know that sounds so redundant, but it's what I have, and 'Who' I BELIEVE will get you through this, beautiful friend!! Keep casting your cares upon Him, and KNOW without any doubt that you are not alone, and that you are thought of so often! You were on my heart again the other day, so I went and picked out one of our favorite Poppy Dips for Khloe to wear in your honor! Enjoy graduation time with your beautiful daughters and continue to take just one day at a time. God is greater than all of this, so take His grace in abundance and lean on Him... I truly trust and believe He WILL see you through!

    BIG HUGS!! OXO,
    ~Tanya
