And you don’t waste anytime and we are glad for it! Y’all! Look what we did! And I mean We, as in anyone who is reading/following Trent and the rest of GP6. Look what we did. I was experiencing some doubt regarding this here blog recently and I would be lying to you if I didn’t admit to some weird feelings about this thing that’s happening, but I’m working through that. So, here’s the deal, one of my super soul sister’s (Betty) took it upon herself to nominate our blog to be featured on the I Had Cancer website, which is dedicated to the support of any and all individuals who have been touched by cancer – totally in our wheelhouse, right? Well, I don’t know how to…so I’ll just let you read what we got today.
First of all, happy new year! We’ve spent a lot of time poring over the submissions sent in and after careful consideration, we’re very happy to announce that your submission, Confessions From the Cancer House, will be specially mentioned for IHadCancer’s 2016 Blog Awards. Congratulations! It is already live on our site and will be published across our social media accounts this evening.
We will be spending the next few weeks sharing the article featuring your blog and other amazing authors, so if you would like to help us spread the word and gloat a little (deservedly!), please do so. You can tag us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter as well as use the hashtag #IHCblogawards.
Thank you so much for participating, and congratulations again!
The IHadCancer Team
Uhhh, ok. Wait. What?! No way. No. Way. For Real?! So like, we’re really helping people and stuff?! Really? Really. LOOK WHAT WE DID! LOOK AT GOD!
Thank you, I Had Cancer! This is unbelievable and we are STOKED! Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping us to spread our message of hope and faith, and grace, to any and all who will listen. Thank you.
I wanted to quit, several times. I almost always want whatever I’ve put out there back immediately after I’ve hit post, but I click that little button anyway. I promised myself that if I could just have confirmation of just one person finding something here that gave them some sort of relief from the isolation that is cancer I would keep writing. Then, you. I’d hear from you that something I was experiencing was true and real to you as well. And, as cheesebally as it sounds, you kept me going. Listen, I know it’s not Pulitzer. I get that, but for me, all I want to do is help. And we’re doing that. We’re making a difference. I cannot tell you how GOOD that feels. Y’all, let’s just soak that up for a second…
Incredible. Thank you. I can keep going now. I will keep going now.
All the love.
To my dear friends who truly understand my grief – Kristy, Candace, Brandy, Sara, Rebecca, Diedre, Haley, Mandy, Ralph, Kathleen, Kat, Tracy, Adrienne, John, Jon, Meta, Jesse, Jess, Matt, Elizabeth. Amber. Rebecca. Loss transforms a person. When I write I think of you.
To The Crew – you know who you are and I hope you know what you mean to me. If not – My feelings for you are probably kind of obscene, it goes way past love. Some other level shit. Soul-shit. God-shit. Thank you. Namaste.
And to my family who have unashamedly allowed me to put our lives on blast, like all the way live, for 2 1/2 years because they love me and they love Trent. That’s all. I know it’s not easy, but you know what it means to us, so it means something to you and that’s awesome. My bebes. Robbie. Frank. My love. Trent.
Oh yeah, here’s the link. We’re third from the top.
I’ll update us soon. For now, just this.
