Snap back to reality, Oh there goes gravity....

Thanks to my mom's friend Glenda and all that donated to our wedding, we were able to take a fabulous 8 day honeymoon to London and Paris.  Those of you who are my friends on facebook, sorry for the photo overload. I just wanted to remember every moment. Those were two places on my bucket list I can now check off.  We had a wonderful time, taking in all of the architecture and culture.  It made me forget about cancer, doctors, time...  I was immersed in the present, breathing in the beauty of it all (Except when we got to Paris and I was breathing in garbage since the workers were on strike).  But the shopkeepers tried to move it all to buildings that weren't in use to keep customers coming in.

We saw all of the major sites we wanted.  Brent got to walk down Abbey Road and I got to go to the Louvre.  We saw Notre Dame and even lit a candle while praying everything would be okay, and the cancer would not take me.  That's about the only time I thought about it, maybe because it was such an amazing church.  We took bus tours and were total tourists, it was great.  I'm sure most of you have seen all of the pics, but for those who haven't, I'm going to add some of my favorites below.

Now we are back to reality.  I have scans and results this Friday so will be heading  back to Atlanta Thursday.  It was so nice not to worry or think about this hand we've been dealt and just be.  But, now is the time I have to give it to God.  It's in His hands. I will update you all on Friday.

Thank you all for your continuous and relentless prayers.  Please keep them coming, we appreciate them so much.  And we are all praying for the victims and families of the Pulse Nightclub Orlando massacre.  No matter what the motive was, this was a senseless tragedy.  I can't even watch without crying.  Life can change, or end, for you or your loved ones at any moment.  Hold them close, tell them they are loved, because tomorrow is not promised to anyone.

Buckingham Palace

This statue means "Anything is Possible".  It was my favorite.
