Girly Chat Link Up: That time you were really lucky....

09 March 2017
Time for another girly chat link up! This month's topic about being lucky and talking about that one time you were really lucky! I have to say I don't think I'm that lucky because I normally never win anything so when I was thinking about this writing this post nothing was really coming to me. I did win tickets on Twitter to see Il Divo which was amazing but that is basically my only good lucky moment. It is funny when people often think of being lucky they only think of winning something when really we are so lucky in many ways.

I kept on trying to figure something out that was more exciting then Il Divo tickets and it hit me! If you have been reading my blog for awhile or know me in person you know I had a cancer scare back in 2009. I was told I needed chemo before I could have surgery to remove the tumor from my ovary. It was all very scary and upsetting. I luckily had an amazing specialist in Halifax who just didn't think it was cancer and she decided my best option was surgery and soon. No chemo just get in there and take out whatever was in there. Two weeks later I was having surgery to have this mass removed. I had never had surgery before and having surgery on your stomach makes you feel like you're 100 years old! You don't realize how much you use those muscles. It was a long 6 week recovery but I did it and I got a call from Dr. Rittenburg that it wasn't cancer she was right! It was actually my ovary who decided to just be a little crazy and didn't want to be a part of my body anymore. I have watched people deal with cancer, I have watched families of those dealing with cancer, I have been a part of those families and I cannot begin to tell you how lucky I am that I didn't have cancer. I'm here.

This reminded me of how lucky I am when it comes to my family. I honestly don't know how I would function without them. We have close family and I always feel bad for those who don't have same. When someone says they don't really get along with their siblings that basically boggles my mind because mine are my best friends. The older I have often the more I realize how awesome my parents have been. Yup, I really got the best when it comes to family and not just my immediate family my whole family/friends are all pretty awesome!

Final thought...There is going to be all kind of lucky stories today with the link up and I'm excited to read them but I want everyone to remember today how lucky we are to be alive and well. Yes, we all have our problems we are dealing with but just don't take things for granted because they can change in second.

  1. You are so right, being a live and well is extremely lucky! It is something that I don't take for granted after seeing a close friend of mine struggling with breast cancer recently (thank goodness she is in remission right now). Also, close and supportive family makes us lucky as well. I loved reading your post! Have a great day!

  2. Thank you for linking up with us! I love this story and it's so true, luck can be interrupted in so many different ways. I always say if we don't have our faith or our health than we have nothing. I am so happy to hear everything worked out for you. I too have had a few different scares and I am beyond thankful and "lucky" that the results have always been benign. Live every day to the fullest <3 Beautifully Candid

  6. Oh goodness gracious. Thank goodness you ended up not having the chemo. That would have been so crazy to go through all of that only to find out it wasn't even cancer. Thank you for linking up with us today!

  7. Wow, what a story! So glad you followed the direction of someone else and didn't just do the chemo right away. I'm so glad everything was OK!! I know exactly what you mean about surgery on your stomach, I just had that and it's insane how much you use those muscles everyday then all of the sudden, can't! I love your outlook on life, I feel the same way :)
