I think this is life...not just as a #Lifer in Cancerland, but life. We are never expecting "that" whatever that might be.
When I met Eric, I wasn't expecting to fall in love with him. When I had Ian, I wasn't expecting my heart to grow 100x and Ian's presence filling it with magical love. When I heard I had cancer that first time, I wasn't expecting the fight that filled me up, and the fight I had inside of me. When it came back as Stage 4 Breast Cancer, I wasn't expecting that...AT ALL. When it moved to my brain, three times, I sure as hell wasn't expecting that. When Eric and mom had to will be to get out of bed, to get back in the game of life, I wasn't expecting that. When I relearned to walk, drive and live again...I wasn't expecting that.
When I found a group of friends who all have Stage 4 Breast Cancer who I couldn't get through this with out, I wasn't expecting that.
Some of the best things in life have been things that in no way I was expecting.
