Ohh ohh we’re living on a prayer! That seems to be the motto of my life.
Before I start this post, let me welcome you to my blog party and also tell you a little about myself and my family. My name is Heather George, and I am a vibrant semi young mother of three. Easton is 11, Elijah is 7, and Emma Grace is 6. I am married to Mark, the most amazing man on the planet in my opinion.
I semi-homeschool Easton and Elijah (with the help of a local school), and I wouldn’t trade that for the world. I plan on homeschooling full time next year, with the help of an umbrella school.

This week marks the halfway point of my chemo (you can clap!) and I want to celebrate it with you! If you are new to my blog, I have brain cancer. I had a malignant tumor (anaplastic astrocytoma) removed last May and underwent chemo and radiation simultaneously for 6 weeks and had a month off, then started my full year of chemo. I am on a 5 day on, 23 day off cycle and I am six months in (or out!) of that treatment!
Like I said, You can clap!
The surgeon that preformed my crainiotomy gave me a prognosis 3-5 years to live. God says in His word that only He knows the number of my days. Only He knows the number of hairs (or lack there of ) on my head. Only he knows what the future holds for my life, and I am trusting the great physician…
God has been so very very good to my family. If you have read my blog, you will know that I am a firm believer, I make no excuses about my faith, and I hold nothing back when it comes to where my trust lies. I often say that my cancer did not take my God by surprise, and either way this ends well for me! That doesn’t mean that I don’t (often) have stern talks with God, and ask “why” over and over (and over and over) again. Trust me, I do, but I figure He has broad enough shoulders to handle it! I also live life to the fullest, I embrace each day for the gift that it is, and I cherish every.single.moment I have with my family.
Take a moment and look around my blog. Click on the many things I have in my sidebar (Yes, I know I have a ton!) but before you leave, if you dont read anything else, please read “The Name” and “The Cancer” and “Emma Grace” up top in the left sidebar. I promise you that you will not leave here empty and you will not leave here hopeless.
More than anything, I want you to leave here with hope… hope that you can face any circumstance with Christ by your side. And when you are not strong enough to walk, He will carry you, like he has done me and my family through the many trials of our lives.
Thanks for stopping by!
