A Surprise Package

The other day a surprise package arrived. It contained a gorgeous, soft, hand knitted scarf. There was sweet card, and no signature. No return address.

It was from a reader of my blog, whose name I don't know, whom I've never met.

Constantly, especially in my car as I listen to music, I think about how lucky I am. This tumor has been a lucky charm. I feel like my life is absolutely amazing. A hero by my side who constantly loves me through amazing changes, an unbelievable family who supports me in every single way, friends who always keep me laughing and hugging me when I need to cry, and the support from people whom I've never met, but love me as if we'd been friends for an eternity. I've been introduced to a whole new world because of this little nugget. I have the opportunity to share my life, and for the first true time, I feel like I actually have something important to talk about. This story, of my journey, is raw and honest. I'm sure I sometimes sound foolish, or ridiculous, but that's a part of who I am.

I'm so insanely grateful for all of the support. I have the best group of people cheering me on, keeping space for me in their heart. I couldn't ask for anything more.

I don't really have a solid opinion about lives being predestined. I don't exactly believe that everything happens for a reason. I do, however, believe that this tumor has brought the best out of me. This is a challenge, and I'm grateful to have the chance to share it with all of you.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, and a very, very special thank you to the unbelievably talented maker of the scarf. I'm humbled by the fact that you took the time to make a scarf just for me, "to keep me warm in those cold Wenatchee winters." I can't tell a lie, it made me cry with happy tears. I'm so truly grateful for all of your love and kindness. Thank you.

Photo of the scarf coming soon! :)
