The Good-The Truth-The Beautiful

I have waited, waited and waited on the words to come to my mind, to write a beautiful remission story that I knew how on my mom winning her battle against Ovarian Cancer.

Unfortunately, those words have never came to me. I’m realizing that sometimes you learn how fragile life is and that at any given time you can lose it. The truth is cancer made us stronger. It did not defeat us, but rather, it gave us (especially my mom) a will to live and to fight for others during their own journey. I see my mom stronger, able to withstand the worst pain a family could have gone through, (pause – as I’m getting choked up). I look back on all the challenges we faced.

Slam! Bam! Wow! You have cancer. You also have this amount of days to live.

I am grateful and blessed by all the wonderful people God has put in our path, the role of prayer, stories, smiles, or just open ears has been a beautiful thing. At times in life you may not know where you are being lead, but to trust God as he leads you through hard times of anxiety.

You know, I once heard a priest say – if you haven’t experienced hard times to ‘buckle up’ and if this life was meant to be easy, we would never have such a place like Heaven to look forward to.

So if you are in the center of rough and disappointing times, I hope you find potential of courage to carry-on, as my mom has through the journey of cancer.

Even if there are never enough words to truly capture my own feelings inside of me today, I know I have seen my mother’s transformation to be what is truly a gift from God.

Hey Peeps! I'm Kacie, a 30 something year old dreamer with a love of all things. I'm a shy and very quiet girl from Louisiana. I grew up on a farm in the middle of watermelon fields and dirt roads. However, it was in the middle of those roads where my journey began as a child. I would like to think that I can always return to where I’m from when life is overwhelming. I enjoy baking, gardening, eating, photography, & all things country-related. I’m also a cradle Catholic who enjoys learning more about Catholicism. God has put my Faith to the test on several different occasions throughout my life. I’m a caregiver to my mother and this is where starting a blog began.
