My Love and I, would like to thank everyone for the wonderful birthday greetings, and well wishes, that you blessed her with! Wow, what a great party. She was so blessed!
I also wanted to let you know that she wants to respond to the messages herself. Yay! It may take her a bit, and it may be tomorrow, because the last time I spoke to her she was heading out the door.
I know I brag about her a lot, how beautiful she is, how much we love each other, and even her skin. It’s because I have seen her come so far! When she had the cancer years ago, is was not tumors she was dealing with, it was a blood cancer.
The treatment involved huge doses of chemo, in order to kill off her bone marrow, and then give her a bone marrow transplant. The chemo actually burnt her skin from the inside out and turned her very, very dark – her skin was almost blue-black.
Did you know your skin is an organ? Yep, it is. My Love got a disease after the transplant, which can be deadly if not treated, and it did a horrible number on her skin, it was a living nightmare. Her skin was a lot like elephant skin.
That is why when I look at her today – I do rejoice! And her skin is soft and beautiful now. We focus on the future, walking together, as we thank God….. for the healing…. and the restoration.
My Love’s birthdays are a really big deal at our house. Thanks for celebrating with us.
