GOD's Goodness and Great News

Good day friends and family! I pray that you are all having a wonderfully blessed day in our LORD! The sun has been shining beautifully all day, and the temps have been in the lower 80's. PERFECT for this gal. :D
 
So how have you dear folks been? I have been doing very well. GOD has been so good! And I have been blessed with boat loads of energy upon finishing chemo in September. As a matter of fact, I think I feel more physically better than before my surgery. Praise GOD for that. :D
 
So what has life looked like since the end of chemo? A lot more on the calm and normal side. Daily housework, cooking, crafting, and spending time with family, and these girls...
 
 
Who have been very generous in their egg giving. With 5 eggs a day, we are currently swimming in them...


 
I had my first cup of regular coffee last week. I avoided regular coffee during chemo as it can cause dehydration, and works out the liver even more. Boy, was that caffeine kick nice! :D
 
 
I have also been enjoying a normal appetite. Although it has been a weird feeling to go from getting sick at the though of food, to wanting to eat everything in sight! :D So I am trying to replenish my body with all the nutrients it has been lacking in the last few months. I found this at Whole Foods last week, and have LOVED every crunchy, nutrient dense bite. :)
 
 
With the appetite I have, it's a good thing I am able to work out again. ;D I basically had to start over in my weight lifting (I was at 135 pounds in my deadlift prior to the surgery). You will never know how good it felt to lift that iron after 3 months of not touching them. Being sweaty never felt so good! :D
 
 
I recently discovered my favorite part of having no hair. No knots and tangles when riding with my Jeep top back. Oh yes.
 


I was able to go a road trip to West Virginia with my family (minus Justin) last weekend. It was such a blessing and joy to spend time enjoying some fall foliage... 

 
 
and some off roading with the Jeep.
 

Yes, GOD has been so good of late. So good, that on October 5th I was told there is no sign of cancer in my body...
 

Celebratory lunch at Outback with my love...
 
Yes my dear friends, GOD is good, ALL the time. :)
 

 
What goodness has been in your life of late?
 
Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
