Thought for today

I did get my phone call today, and I will have the MRI Wednesday. Everything is moving along. I am frightened, but I have faith. I am educated, but not in this. Sooo, what's a girl to do? Put my faith in God and know that I am exactly where I am supposed to And that's enough for me. As for my thought for today, I actually just now "stole" it from my dear childhood friend that I've known since first grade, Rose. She put it on her facebook page and I thought it was pretty profound:
"There are two ways to live your life...One is as though nothing is a miracle, The other is as though everything is a miracle."

As for me and my family - everything and every day is a miracle....Know that I am resolved to beat this. Just as I had a bad feeling about the biopsies, I have a good feeling about my long term health. Anyone up to buying me a pretty wig??? lol I love you all....thank you SOOOOOO much (already)! Your lifting me up in prayer has completely lifted my spirit and helped me regain my footing.


  1. check out American Cancer Society's Look Good Feel Better program. Definitely worth it. The progress of steps to get through a cancer diagnosis and treatment plan can be daunting, frustrating, scary, aggravating, and any number of other adjectives but as it all comes together in a clear diagnosis and treatment plan, life some how seems to relax a little bit and feel better as some of the unknowns turn into knowns again. good luck!

  2. I am here for you in any way that I can.....

  3. Arla,
    I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers stay strong and trust in God. Let me know if I can help you in anyway.


  4. Hey, your cousin Jill is here for you also. I only live in St. Cloud, not far. I have a girlfriend who went through this and she does home counciling if you need her. She is a survivor and you will be also.
    My prayers are with you each and everyday.

  5. It's too darn early for that or to think about it - Smile. We'll get that pretty wig, if or when, you might need it. BUT, you'd better keep that beautiful hair right on top of your cute little head as long as possible. Love Ya Babe!


  6. Arla, You are now the 4th or 5th woman that I know that has been struck with cancer. I am pre so far. Well, guess what they are still going strong. All done with their fight and living life to the fullest. I have complete confidence that you will also fight and win this battle. You are in my thoughts, stay strong and beat this. Think of cancer as a bad excuse for a man. You've beat them before, so this should be nothing for you. Take care sweetie. Angie

  7. :) Aways with you in my thoughts....
