We’re all survivors of one thing or another, I suppose. I survived breast cancer. Or maybe I should say I am surviving breast cancer because anyone who has ever had cancer knows that their “survivor” status can change at any moment.
Life doesn’t return to normal after cancer invades it. But after the incisions heal and the treatment ends and the hair grows back, life does eventually return to a new kind of normal. And then it’s time to think less about surviving and more about living.
Life is God’s gift to us–a precious and wonderful gift wrapped up in a pretty pink ribbon. I kind of wish mine didn’t include breast cancer, but nevertheless I am choosing to embrace my life and to enjoy every moment of it. Because life after breast cancer is a gift. I like to call it A New Shade of Pink.
