My Smallest Blessings

I don't know if you can see it.. But My Smallest Blessing.. is a the lil teeny weenie scar that is next to my tattoo. I have about 75 of these all over my body.

They are all different shapes, colors and even sizes ranging from a small spec to a long 6 inch scar on my back.

The reason why I see these scars as My Smallest Blessings is because each of these scars are places where small cancers have been removed from my body. Each of these scars are the pain and suffering of the last 8 years. They are my growth. My courage. My badges of honor.

But mostly these little scars are My Smallest Blessings because each of these scars stopped my cancer from spreading. Each of these scars was as far as my cancer got to go.

So for that... I am so blessed x 75.

My Smallest Blessings comes from The Southern Housewife..
