“And now it came to pass that the burdens which were laid upon Alma and his brethren were made light; yea, the Lord did strengthen them that they could bear up their burdens with ease, and they did submit cheerfully and with patience to all the will of the Lord.”
I have read this scripture many times in my life, but it now has a new meaning to me. I feel that I can personally relate to this scripture. Cancer sucks, but how is it possible to feel blessed at the same time? Justin and I often talk about how lucky he has been during this cancer process. This new chemo has allowed him to continue to work and go to school. He isn’t throwing up all the time and sick in bed. We feel like the people in this scripture, the Lord has eased our burdens. We feel so lucky that we are able to live a semi normal life with the burden of cancer. Justin recently got scan results back and the tumor looked slightly smaller. Another example of the Lord given us strength to keep moving forward.
I felt prompted to write a blog after we went boating on the 4th of July. Justin continues to amaze me with his positive attitude. He does not want cancer to define him. He does not want cancer to hold him back. He continues on with life and never looks back. We went boating on the 4th of July and he proved cancer wrong. He had a fun day surfing and doing it all with only 1 and half lung. He truly is an inspiration!
My cousin Whitney made this awesome video of the boating trip!
