Whew! It has been a hectic couple of weeks around the Wasson house. We have been busy, busy, busy! Just last night I asked Ryan what happened to the relaxing days of summer? It seems that ever since Charley started back to preschool that our lives have been going full speed. Although things are somewhat crazy, I cherish each day for the simple fact that I am alive and have been blessed with another day......no matter how crazy!
Next week I will be leaving for Salt Lake City, Utah for my training as a patient speaker for Myriad Genetic Testing Lab. I will be joined by 10 - 15 other women who have also tested positive the BRCA 1 or BRCA 2. I am so excited for this opportunity! It is incredibly bittersweet! I realize that this opportunity came to be because I was diagnosed with breast cancer.....something that NO woman should have to face. However, I have always been a positive person when it comes to my breast cancer journey and believe that I have been healed because God has great things planned for my life. I am now seeing a glimpse into those GREAT things.
Whether it is breast cancer, divorce, or the death of a loved one, we will all face tragedy in our lives. I believe that within every tragedy, there is anopportunity to make a difference. I made the choice to Rise Up and use my tragedy to hopefully encourage and inspire women from all over the world......and you can do the same thing!
I can't wait to share all the details of my trip to Utah with all of you! Here I come Park City!
