For a while, I couldn’t help but look at you like a traitor. Like you had let me down in an unforgivable way. I couldn’t understand how after everything I’ve done for you, you could allow this to happen.
I’m not angry anymore.
I now see that cancer was something beyond your control. The enemy can find ways to infiltrate even the most secure places.
Body, you’ve proven yourself. You’ve shown me that you are clean and healthy and unbelievably strong. You’ve protected me from something that I was so afraid I couldn’t withstand; the dreaded chemo.
I am alive and well. Very well.
Last night you took me salsa dancing and I laughed until my cheeks hurt.
This morning you took me for a 5k run in the rain and I felt pure endorphin filled joy.
I know you’re not perfect, in fact we both have our issues. But I see you now for the amazing gifts that you hold. I can’t wait to see what else you’re capable of.
