Returned home this week from our now annual family trip to Tulum, Mexico.
There is something that happens to me when I go on this trip. I leave cancer behind. No hand jell, no fear of germs, suddenly every ache and pain leaves and I am free. I am Donna the vacationer, not Donna the cancer patient.
It was back to reality this week with a chemo injection yesterday, but I am not letting go of that woman lounging on the beach without a care in the world.
And while the hand sanitizer is back and the body aches will soon return, I am ready to take on 2018 and remember the girl that is free and who’s really looking forward to her next vacation.
Happy New Year
