One of life's little bumps in the road...

Today I went in for my annual check up with my Obgyn.  He found a lump on my breast.  A rather large one at that. I never expected to hear that from him. I don't know why, I just never thought, it would happen to me. But, I guess that is how we all think until it does happen to us. He doesn't think it's cancerous, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. So, I guess I will be going for my mammogram tomorrow. How appropriate during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  That's something all women should stay on top of. But, I think with the fear we all carry deep down inside, so many of us avoid getting those mammograms because we are afraid of what they might find or we are foolish enough to think it will never happen to us. Days like these I wish my Grandmother was still around. She always had a way of making me feel like everything will be just fine. She always said your a Rush woman and we are strong women and can get through just about anything. So, what do I do when I come home from the doctor? Cook greens, mash potatoes, gravy and BBQ ribs.  It's comfort food. Whenever I'm missing her, I cook the things she used to cook a lot of. For some reason, it makes me feel a little better. If I can offer any advise to anyone, get your check ups and mammograms and never forget to tell the ones you love how much you love them.
