Kill Cancer Day

I've made it! Today I see Dr. W and then have my last scheduled chemo treatment. Early on in the chemo journey, I had this idea (taken from a sermon and actually the illustration was kind of morbid, but I adapted!) to fill up a jar with marbles and each day move one over until it was the final day of chemo and the jar was empty. I got the kids involved, and I can't say we kept up with it religiously, but we did minimally keep up, and I was always aware of those two jars. Well, this morning, that jar is EMPTY.

Now, let's start praying RIGHT NOW that it stays empty! 

P.S. Becky bought me these beautiful glass jars from Anthropologie, the only thing I own from that store although I drool over their newsletters often.

Gives new meaning to the phrase, "glass is half empty or half full." Yours is empty and full all at the same time! Blessings to all....
