Since it is October
and October is Breast Cancer Awareness month
I decided I need to write about something that is close to my heart.
In fact, it's actually so close to my heart that I barely mention it.
I dont like to expose that part of my heart to many people.
It just hurts too badly.
I hate the C word.
The C word I am talking about today is...
My sister has been gone now for 4 years.
She died from cancer on June 13, 2008.
She was only 29 years old.
The year my sister died of cancer my grandmother died from cancer as well.
This cancer thing is rough.
It scars so many left behind.
But there is a reason.
God has a reason.
He needs this tragic thing to happen to open up other peoples hearts and minds.
Cancer throws every piece of your life into perspective.
As I wanted to write a long and lengthy post about cancer,
I just can't.
It has been 4 years and I still can't talk about it.
I can sit here and write and tell you that God has spoken to me through this expereince though.
The most amazing part is that I know that I will see my sister again.
She had a rocky past but her future is bright and she is standing by her maker.
THAT, THAT RIGHT THERE makes everything ok.
It eases my heart.
I came across the video of a girl name Jenn.
She passed away from Ovarian cancer this past week.
Please watch this video it is simply beautiful.
I dare you to not cry knowing that she did not beat her battle.
