BREAST CANCER…THOSE TWO WORDS HAD TURNED MY ENTIRE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN
Even, now, after the mastectomy and reconstruction, and weeks of chemo, treatments, I felt alone, hopeless. I had grown up in my church, going to church and leaning on my faith. But where was God in all of this? “Here’s a little something to lift your spirits, ” my mother said when she visited one day before I started back to work. She handed me a small gift bow. Inside was a porcelain angel with her hand resting on her chin. “Thank you. It’s lovely, “I said but I needed the assurance a porcelain peace couldn’t bring.
A couple of weeks later, when I returned to work, I noticed an unfamiliar object on my desk. I moved closer…an angel made of resin. I turned her over. “Angel of Healing” was written on the bottom’. The people I loved were trying to comfort me, even if God went silent. Then a package arrived from my niece. “Serenity Angel” was inside. And I wasn’t even an angel collector. Why the theme”. I started to think maybe God was there for me after all, when a gift from another kind coworker arrived a beautiful Angel of hope candle holder.
A thought flickered in my mind, and finally I heard God say, “I am with you, always.”
Something I am reminded of every day, surrounded by my growing angel collection
