Survivors - Life Defining Moments


Our lives will be full of defining moments, but those moments don't have to define us. Author unknown

My lovely Nurse took it on my iPad not the best quality.

I am not sure if today is a defining moment or not .

I dropped my boys at school and in the few minutes it took to drive to the Cancer Care Centre this song played.



The station was tuned to my husband's choice , in a vehicle I didn't expect to drive today. I didn't bother changing the station.

I heard these lyrics , for the first time . It kind of made my heart sing, as I joined in.


Thank you Matthew West for " Survivors "

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, oh

You've been dropped like a dream to the floor
You've been told not to try anymore
But you're wakened from yesterday's war
'Cause you're a survivor

And your strength has been stolen away
And your faith has been worn to a fray
But you live to live on one more day
'Cause you're a survivor

And nothing can stop you now
Nothing can back you down
You never give up, you never give in
You're a survivor, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh

For the phone call that tore you apart
For the fear that gripped your heart
For the moment you saw who you are
And what you're made of

For the cancer that stole all your hair
For the smile like you just don't care
For your hope in midnight prayer
You're a survivor, yeah, yeah, yeah

And nothing can stop you now
Nothing can back you down
You never give up, you never give in
You're a survivor, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh

I'm convinced neither death nor life
Neither demons nor angels of light
Shadows present a future bright
Can separate us

From the love that will lead us on
To the hope when all hope is gone
'Til the day heaven calls us home
We are survivors

And nothing can stop us now
Nothing can back us down
We never give up, we never give in

And nothing can stop us now
Nothing can back us down
We never give up, we never give in
'Cause we are survivors

We are, we are, we are, yeah
Oh, we are survivors
Whoa, we are survivors

Whoa, whoa, whoa, oh

Oh boy . Just what I needed to hear. I am so grateful to be here.Though, lucky you couldn't hear me singing.

Sadly, I flicked on Facebook as I waited to be called for my last Herceptin, an IV treatment I've been having for a year {every 3 weeks}. The beautiful SJ whose video I posted Friday , passed away yesterday. She was on Today - tonight 2-3 wks ago, speaking about her race against time to be married to her sweetheart. She also leaves behind a little boy, one year old.

Again , though I only knew SJ through our online FB group. I am deeply saddened. Life is so unfair. SJ lost her sister to Breast cancer 3 yrs ago.

A stark reminder too , that every day is a gift, not GIVEN.

God creates defining moments in our lives so that we can see ourselves first and then discover just how much we really, really need Him.
