Twelve years ago my body changed.  Twelve years ago today I was in surgery for eleven hours as I underwent a double mastectomy and reconstruction in the same day.

Thrive where you are planted

Often over the past two years I sometimes found myself questioning why things went down the way they did. I have had times of quietly (sometimes not so quietly) demanding why God/The Universe/The Creator dumped a steaming pile of shit in my lap that I was solely in charge of cleaning up.
