Crossing fingers


Trifextra:  Week Sixty-three

This weekend we're asking for exactly 33 of your own words inspired by the following quote from the book you could win in the WBN giveaway. Good luck!
“It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” ― Paulo CoelhoAlchemist






Anxiety overflowing.
Fingers drum nervously.
Good news or bad news?

Afraid to hope.
Desperate to dream,
To plan, to believe.

Enter the doctor.
The future begins to clear.
Finally the words…

 “Cancer free”.

    1. There is no better news, for certain. It's not fiction, it's for my mom, who has been battling cancer for almost three years. She's not *cured*, but at this moment, she's winning the battle. I was blessed enough to be with her when she got the awesome news. It was, as you can imagine, an incredibly momentous occasion.

      Thanks for reading!

    1. We've been holding our collective breath (as a family) for what seems like forever. I lost my dad to cancer in June, 2010 and 3 months later, my mom found out her cancer was back. I am happy to report that she's beating it. You have no idea how big MY sigh of relief was!
