The waiting is over … the wondering, the worrying, the fear. I had a breast biopsy last week, and today I got the call I had been wanting, yet was frightened to receive. Every time the phone rang the last few days, my heart would begin to beat nervously in my chest. Every time I would think of the possibilities and cry in fear, my sweet dog, Lexie, would look at me with her sad eyes and lick my hand. My husband, friends, and family were encouraging, sympathetic, kind, loving, and caring. But still, despite all their reassurances and blessings and kind wishes, I was frightened. I prayed and prayed …
Today the call came from the doctor’s office … and it is negative! I laughed; I cried; I got on my knees and thanked God; I hugged my Lexie—PRAISE THE LORD! I called all my friends and family and they were all so happy for me, glad, relieved, laughing, joyous.
After much sadness, today is a day to be happy; today is a day of good news! I am eating Chinese and cheesecake tonight and celebrating with dear friends!
Thank you for letting me share my joy with you.
