MAMMOGRAPHY DAY

TL 10-17 MAMMOGRAPHY DAY

Today is MAMMOGRAPHY DAY!  The “what-if’s” are frightening, but it’s important to get the test done so you know where you stand.  The sooner it is found, the better.  Nothing good comes from waiting.  I’ve lost so many friends and family to this awful cancer.  I have yearly screenings and I encourage you to do the same.

Lucinda Berry Hill has written several poems to encourage those who are currently fighting this battle.

A GIFT FROM THE PAST2

WHEN NO MEANS YES

A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS2

BECAUSE I KNOW JESUS2

EVERY DAY STEPS

I PRAYED FOR YOU

IN HIS CARE2

PRAYER BY PRAYER

WHERE YOUR BEAUTY LIES2

BEAUTIFUL REBEKAH

CLAIMED AND LOVED

HE'LL MAKE IT GOOD

HE IS FAITHFUL

HIS LOVE IS EXTRA-LARGE

IN HIS ARMS

KEEP YOUR CHIN UP 2

LIFT WITH YOUR KNEES2

LIKE A FLOWER IN A FIELD2

MASTER OF MY THOUGHTS2

RIGHT AWAY I PRAYED

LEANING

It’s my prayer that these poems speak peace and courage to your soul today.

For several years I’ve collected Longaberger baskets.  My favorite ones are the HORIZON OF HOPE.  I don’t have very many, but I have displayed them prominently in my home in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

If you like baskets of any kind, maybe you would like to join my new group on facebook called I’M A BASKET CASE!!!  Here’s the direct link:   https://www.facebook.com/groups/669536513153216/

After having a mammogram a few years ago, I was contacted and told it was “suspicious” and asked to go back for another one.  I had a few days to sit and think, worry and pray (can you worry and pray at the same time – yes!)  When I got back to the clinic, they explained all of the procedures I’d have to undergo if the second test came back “suspicious”.  The technician explained all about breast biopsy and what to expect.  I was fighting tears – I just kept praying the test would not show anything odd.

I’m so thankful – the second test was not “suspicious” so I got a clean bill of health and was told I could wait a year for the next mammogram.  Thank You, Lord!

If you have not gone in for a mammogram – please GO!  You need to stay on top of your health.  🙂
