I take pics often because I want to capture moments that mean everything to me. This is me at the beginning of this year just capturing the growth of where I am. I was so happy to see all this hair. My first time blowdrying my hair since it has grown back. I shaved my head in Sept/Oct of 2021 because I knew my hair was going to come out due to the chemo treatments. I noticed my hair was coming out and I just didn’t want to see it coming out on a daily basis. So I shaved my head. I mean I lost all hair where you know hair is.. LOL But anywho,
I took this picture because I was saying to myself. WOW! God, you did it, I look good. Yes, I see me, for so long I tend to everyone else but at this moment I actually took a long look into the mirror and was happy with who I saw in the mirror (playing Mary J Blidge, words in my head- no time for mopping around being down….. so I like what I see when I walk past the mirror…that part!!!
I took some time to take a deep breath stared for a minute and was overwhelmingly happy. The journey for the past three years has been definitely been a challenge and still ongoing. I appreciate the time for self-discovery. I have learned some things about myself and I totally highly recommend some type of counseling. So the journey continues ………
This is the place where I have placed links to the site of interviews I have done to share my journey of NHL.
I pray you woke up this morning with your 10 minute manifestation meditation, studying the word and speaking an extraordinary day into your day. Waking up with a grateful heart and just feeling like you can conquer all that comes your way, with God by your side. Remember you can do nothing without him (John 15:5)
Know that you can have that great day, you can have an abundance of whatever you manifest. Speak life into all you do. Humble yourself and ask God that when you bless others they don’t see you they see Him. You are that loving being who is blessed by the best. You are uniquely made. What is for you is for you. Be mindful of the words you speak that you speak life and not hurt, harm or place anyone in danger . Keep this verse in mind A whole some tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit. (Proverbs 15:4)
Make you day EXTRAORDINARY!!!
“Keep your eyes on the prize, and that is you. You must always find time for self care. We tend to always cater to others but if we don’t invest in ourselves and take care of our well being we are not able to be of service to others.
“Keep your head up and think of 3 things that makes you smile. If you focus your energy on the good things then your day will manifest into great day.”
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.~ Philippians 4:8
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. Psalm 150:6
Jesus answered and said to him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this.” John 13:7
The new year has begun. It’s time to set new goals, dream bigger, explore new experiences that will push you into the great person you are meant to be. It’s time to release the fears, step out on faith and strengthen the gifts you have. It is the time to be intentional of being sincere of others and remove the selfish ways that may block your blessings. Unclutter the thoughts of “I can’t” and get it done in 2021.

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is cancer that originates in your lymphatic system, the disease-fighting network spread throughout your body. In non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, tumors develop from lymphocytes — a type of white blood cell. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is more common than the other general type of lymphoma — Hodgkin lymphoma.
