Cancer is so limited!

As I am about to walk out the door to attend LAUGH, I wanted to post something that Mary Jo sent me in the past few weeks. I've been in my bathroom picking out what to wear and styling my hair for what will surely be the last time for months to come. I looked at myself in the mirror and realized that tomorrow (after we shave the hair) everyone will know that I have cancer. There won't be any person who with a second look can't tell. That makes you feel like cancer is so powerful - that it can take away your privacy and your hair. I looked back in the mirror again and realized that I'm still there - tomorrow I'll still be there - and next month it will still be me in the mirror. I am learning that cancer is so limited.

It cannot cripple Love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot destroy peace.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot invade the soul.
It cannot steal eternal life.
It cannot conquer the spirit.

And it can't take me from me. I'm off to hang out with the girls - to rejoice in the opportunity to encourage one another and to do what I do - which is be happy, encourage, love life, celebrate God's goodness! It really is limited.

Love,
Jan
