Happy Dance!

There were lots of reasons to celebrate today. I live in a great country which I love. I am still rejoicing in the news that the oncologist delivered yesterday. I had great moments sharing the news with friends and family today.

Fireworks are set to go off soon but I am going to be horizontal by then. I have an early morning dentist appointment and am feeling a bit tired after an emotional couple of days. I must admit though that I am doing a happy dance. I am hopeful that God has granted me a couple of more years to live and serve. As I sat in church today, I gave thanks for living in a country that has free medical care. I cannot imagine having to pay for the number of scans, tests, and surgery I have had. I am also grateful to live in a country that allows people of different backgrounds to have prayed openly for me–faith and freedom are guaranteed.

What do you value about being a citizen of your country?
Why is a happy dance on your agenda today?

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!

    Suzanne, I am so happy to hear your good news. You have such reason to celebrate and yes we do live in a great country. I have enjoyed all your posts you have written with such honesty throughout your journey. You are truly being who you really are. You will do what you need to do in order to give back to the world and that clearly seems to do the work of ” to serve” as you say. I see you on the path of happiness and I am so glad. This indeed life changing experience seems to have been a big turning point in your life.

    So glad you have been given more years of life to serve. I’m grateful to have a friend like you in the world.

    Getting ready now for another funeral. My friends dad from LIC passed away…..lots of funerals lately. Will write more later.

    Life is a gift not to waste.

    Love, Karen

    Thanks so much, Karen. I really appreciate your insights into my reader as a reader who knows me. It has been such a crazy ride and while it is still not over I am definitely able to exhale. I’m sorry to hear you’ve got another funeral. Peace to you and the family who is mourning the loss of their dad.
