PRAYER FOR ANIMALS

Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals, especially for animals who are suffering; for animals that are overworked, underfed and cruelly treated; for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat their wings against bars; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death.

We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals, and so to share the blessings of the merciful.

 by:  Albert Schweitzer

Breast cancer Journey and THANKSGIVING 2017

I always try to live by the saying that “everyday may not be good, but there’s always something to be thankful for...”— this rings so much truer now during my breast cancer journey.

It all started during my routine mammogram.  The tech during that one August morning said she needed to take more pictures.  I already got a bit worried then but just brushed it off.

A few days after, I got a call back to come in for a diagnostic mammogram this time around plus ultrasound.  I was then told by the breast care nurse that 2 abnormalities were found (Bi-RAD 4/suspicious) and that I needed to have a biopsy done the next week.  

I had a core-needle biopsy done and not to scare off those of you who might need to have one, I find this type of biopsy so barbaric!  I was in so much pain!  But then again each one of us have a different threshold to pain...so what may be painful to me might just be a pinch to you. 

BUT...the biopsy pain I endured then was no comparison to the pain I felt in my ear, my entire body, my soul...upon getting the results call that I have breast cancer.

My heart sank...

Though I’ve already faced breast cancer though my mother whom by GOD’s grace is a 12 years survivor now and still going...I’ve always been the caregiver and not the one who will need caring for...

My first ever surgery was then scheduled 2 weeks after. I was so scared, my faith falters...

Dear GOD, equip me with your strength as I face my biggest challenges.

 Surgery day came...all I can do is offer my life to GOD...

 ...and as if in a blink of an eye it was all over!  

Feeling woozy from the general anesthesia didn’t hinder the clarity of seeing the relieved faces of my loved ones. I felt calmness...

When I said, “My foot is slipping,”your unfailing love, Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me,your consolation brought me joy. ~ Psalm 94:18:19

My post-op recovery is going amazingly well!  I’m already up and about early on and especially after the drainage bulbs were removed.  My family and I just came back from a thanksgiving trip to San Juan Capistrano Mission, California where the Shine of St. Peregrine (Patron Saint of cancer patients and survivors) is located inside the Serra Chapel.

Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment. ~ Matthew 9:22

Thanksgiving is upon us and I thank GOD for my healing!  It took GOD, St. Peregrine, faith, family and friends to see me through.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Love and light to all!

...with You, MY HEART IS WHOLE AGAIN and so I'M BACK...

Missing you comes in waves and tonight I'm doing something about it...I'm taking baby steps to write on you again, my SkippyHeart.com junk pile of emotions blog.

How do I start though?

by...

...an inspiration
...an advocacy
...a poem

or...

with or without an audience, as before, let me just whisper from my heart knowing that somehow your heart would hear even a whimper of my heartbeat...

so here it goes...

with background music playing...

I miss you, I miss you...
there's no other way to say it...
and I...I can't deny it...

BUT life's been trying to knock me down as of the past year through early February. My 17 year old cat, Sammy crossed-over the Rainbow Bridge.

...and to top it all off, my mother had an accident and had to stay at the hospital for almost 3 weeks.  Thank You po, LORD for your AMAZING GRACE, she is doing so well into recovery now.

MY HEART WAS BROKEN, I hurt deeply during those trying times...

But then again, KNOWING THAT GOD IS AND AS ALWAYS BY MY SIDE...is more than enough for my heart to heal and be whole again. HE stood by me and gave strenght!

so, from my heart to yours...I'M BACK!
