I am speaking in church tomorrow and have been trying to figure out what to say all morning.
While doing some research on the Internet, I came across this video.
It brought me to tears. It reminded me of my own mom and how so much of life as she knew it was taken from her when she was a young mother. At age 35, she went through chemotherapy, radiation, and a bone marrow transplant. Her physical body was never the same again--but to me, she was the most beautiful woman on the planet.
I love what the woman in this video says: "I am Stephanie Nielson. And I am not my body."
