Job 2:10 "We take the good days from God--why not also the bad days?" (The Message Bible)
I didn't start out this day with the plans of writing a blog.
In fact, I really don't know a whole lot about this stuff. I've only followed a few blogs randomly, although I will say, blogging is very intriguing to me.
So, having said all of that, I should tell you that this is so not like me. I usually NEVER start anything until I have a complete plan~start to finish, (which stops me from starting a lot of things....except reading books of course), but the events of the last week have had such a profound impact on me that I need to explore further.
Are you curious yet? Well, here you go. Last week I went in for my routine mammogram. Yeap.....you guessed it. The phone call came that there was some abnormality that needed further testing and "When could I come back?" I said, "What's available?" She said, "Whenever you can come in....how about tomorrow?" Of course I immediately think the worst knowing that the first appointment took 6 weeks to get! I scheduled an appointment, hung up the phone, and the question fell right on me like a ton of bricks. WHAT IF I ONLY HAVE A LITTLE WHILE to live!! What if I'm looking at the last six months of my life?? Am I doing what I need to be doing?
