Words Have Power

October 2001 – my mother was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer.

I was devastated.

My mom, not so much.

A woman of great strength and character, she wasn’t going to let cancer get in her way.

She declared “I have things to do, people to see and places to go.” She was determined to live to see her only grandchild at the time, my son, graduate from high school.

There’s energy and power in words. I believe we speak things into existence.

We can use our words to heal or destroy.

My mom likes to say when you are born your book is written. I’d like to add “feel free to edit accordingly.”

My mom had surgery, endured chemo and radiation, but most importantly she chose to edit her book and use her words to heal.

Seventeen years later, she is still doing those things, seeing those people and definitely going places.

 In the face of adversity, how will you use your words?
