Hi TLT Readers!
I know the month of May is dedicated to the series, “Learning How to Trust,” however, today’s post is not part of that learning series. (But it does have EVERYTHING to do with Trust.)
Today marks a bit of a milestone, and I wanted to briefly share (AND CELEBRATE) with you.
One year ago today, I went in for my first mammogram. Today, as I sit in my writing chair, these words spewing out to you, simple words, but words accompanied with complex feelings inside my chest, I’m reminded of all that has happened in ONE YEAR.
For all of you women, and men who have women in your lives who this applies to — if you’re putting off getting your first mammogram, or even your annual mammogram, thinking, “Oh, I’ll do it next year,” remember: A LOT CAN HAPPEN IN ONE YEAR. A whole lot.
And whether you remember this little detail about my experience or not, I’ll remind you — THERE WAS NO LUMP. I felt no lump. There was no other way it would’ve been detected other than by a mammogram.
Today, on this one year mark, as I celebrate and offer many, many prayers of thanks, I ask that you share this with others. Don’t have people wait until it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month (Oct.) to be reminded about the importance of annual mammograms, remind them NOW, while it’s actually not on their minds.
Thank you for joining me on my Healing Journey. Thank you for the love, prayers, and support.
