I can't think of anything that was so profound that made me stop blogging but I've decided to pick up where I left off.
All in all, 2010 ended on a great note and I am very grateful that my family is healthy and happy.
As a result of two months of testing in November and December, I can officially declare that I do NOT have breast cancer. I did have a lumpectomy in December and have just started five years of Tamoxifen (which is NOT a walk in the park). I realize that I could be much worse off and am grateful the only things I have to contend with are the side effects of the Tamoxifen and a slightly wonky-looking breast. They weren't movie stars prior to the surgery ;)
During this same time, my dad was hospitalized and initially, I thought we were going to lose him. Turns out that he had a terrible E. Coli infection which was shutting down his kidneys and making his heart unstable but thanks to prayers and brilliant medical staff, he turned around a made a full recovery.
There is one situation which did not have the resolution I expected but since this is a blog and not a therapy session, I'll keep THAT private.
I hope everyone had a wonderful ending to 2010 and hope that 2011 brings you and those you care about health and happiness. I'll be back soon.

There are those who sing the praises of the bible one minute and the next minute, they are finger-pointing and spewing hate.
Does being "saved" REALLY give one a green light to act like a jackass one minute and be forgiven the very next.........FOREVER?
Does being a Christian REALLY mean that one never has to be held accountable for their behavior? If this is true, no wonder Christianity has such a large fan base!
Don't get me wrong, I am not bashing Christianity AT ALL. I am only bashing those "talk the talk" but don't "walk the walk".
This message is for SEVERAL people in my life. Some are family - some not.

They are committed to addressing my concerns? Really? On their website, it specifically says to email them with any concerns. So I did.
Evidently, my email was only important enough to warrant an automated response. I printed the letter out, enclosed my cut up credit card and mailed the letter this morning. Calling them is NOT an option because in this day age, I'm quite certain that their customer service is outsourced to another country where English is not the native language. Thanks but no thanks, New York & Co.
I don't get it...
