They were everywhere. Blanketed the ground like a perfumed petal path for a Hawaiian bride. While in Maui, I was the bride, marrying the orange sunset and the sugary sand and the aquamarine salty waters and the luminescent light.
In 2010 I was diagnosed with stage3 breast cancer and survived a year of cancer camp where a Good Witch and her coven poisoned me, cut me and lit me up like the Northern lights. I traveled to the Kingdom of Lost Breasts and came back without mine, and yet still me.
For eight years after I thought I lost that cruel bitch 💃💃💃 but she came back angry seeking revenge. I am Stage4 now and there ain’t no Stage5 folks. By God’s grace, the love of many poured out on me, the silent prayers whispering my name, the demon hasn’t stopped me from living my wild sacred ordinary glorious life. And even, even if I receive my cure in Heaven, earthly body game over, when I die and rise, cancer dies and turns to dust.
I don’t know what battles you face my dear Listener, the heartbreak you barely breathe through, but I just came to say ‘There there now, don’t stop collecting the plumeria, making memories, breathing in the sweetness of your life. Keep going. Silver linings, angels on your path, and serving others in simple kind ways will continue to give purpose and meaning to your life. Keep going. There is a Light no darkness can overcome. Lord I receive it, and share the Good News of Your faithfulness.’
