Pants & Skirts

No, this is not one of those cliched blog posts about the over discussed issue of Christian women wearing skirts v. pants, which is obviously something to which no one will ever find the real answer and, upon which, there will never be a settled agreement.
Rather, it is simply something I wanted to write so that I would have a new blog post.
For a few years now, I've mostly worn skirts, simply because I feel more feminine in them, and like them better; however, because I will be starting my treatments next week I want to be comfy, Mommy and I plan to shop for a pair of jeans and a pair of comfy pants as, a skirt will not be so comfortable going through all of this. Mommy, too, purchased some pants for herself.
So, it isn't that I don't want to feel feminine in these coming few months, but I want to feel comfy, and there's nothing wrong with that.
Anyway, I'm not really sure why I wanted to write this, seeing as it's rather boring, just thought I'd point out that I don't think women wearing pants is wrong, if they do it in a modest, feminine fashion. It's highly possible that when all this is over I will go back to just skirts, but I don't know, we will see.

This, however, is how I would love to dress all the time:

Grace be with you.

God Is So Good!

Monday, we went to my Oncologist to find out the results of the scans and there are NO more tumors, praise the Lord!
So, next Tuesday we will see the Dr. that is going to put the port in me and then the next day or Thursday, he will perform the surgery and then we will go straight from there to the Cancer Center to have my chemo and will be there for 5 hours. It's kind of funny, the Dr. that is going to perform the surgery doesn't see patients on Tuesdays because that is his surgery day, but my Oncologist made sure he would see me.
I will have 3 rounds of chemo over a period of nine weeks and then 3 rounds of radiation, I don't remember how long though.

I have the best family in the world, so loving and caring: when we left the Oncologist, Mommy and I went to where my Aunt Nana works and I went in to tell her and she hugged me tight and we walked outside together to talk with Mommy (she waited in the car) and she was just so happy and stuff. She said that my Uncle (her hubby, of course) had called her like 3 times to ask if she heard anything. The appointment was at 2:30 and she said that he called at 2:45 to ask if she's heard anything and asked if she could call us, I'm thinking he kind of cares about me. When Mommy called Memaw, she started crying when Mommy told her, then when she called Mawmaw, she started bawling, and she called Tommy and could tell that he was trying to keep himself from crying, of course Chris was so thankful as well, when Mommy called him; my brothers are the best. Mawmaw told Daddy that when she called Great Uncle Bill (her brother), they were both crying. Yes, I have the best family in the world. God is so good.
Oh, also, when Mommy & I got home that day, Daddy had gotten me a dozen roses on his way home and had them waiting for me on the table, they're so pretty!

Because of the treatments, my hair will fall out, so the other night Mommy cut my hair real short (I cried) and we're donating it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. We would've gone with Locks of Love but I read up about it and those wigs are not free and are expensive, whereas Pantene Beautiful Lengths is for women who lost their hair due to cancer treatments and their wigs are free.
I do kind of like my hair now, but do plan on letting it grow out long again when it comes back.
My long hair:


So, that's what it's going to be for a couple more weeks before it falls out.


The Lord has blessed us with some rain, and there was a storm this morning. I was awakened by probably the loudest clap of thunder I have ever heard, wow it was loud. It's still grey outside, and kinda windy, hopefully we have more storms coming our way, Lord willing.

Hope you are having a blessed day!
Grace be with you.
