I finished radiation!
I walked out of the last radiation appt and felt the flood of tears.
It is over.
The huge bump in the road has ended....
Well sort of, I still have many test scans and doctors appointments in the future. I am just so Thankful no more radiation, chemo, and feeling sick everyday. The next 2 weeks I will still be dealing with the symptoms of radiation, extreme fatigue, nausea, upset stomach, diareah, achiness. It sounds bad, but it is really no big deal in light of everything. I am so thankful to be alive and looking forward to Christmas.
Jesus, family and friends have been with me all the way. I am overwhelmingly greatful!

Annie has become engaged to Josh Womack! We love him and hope this is the beginning of good news in the Johnson house. Still trying to work out the when and where, but it should be in slo county.

You know when you wake up every morning and realize you have to go to work>>>
I wake up and say I get to go to work today! I don't think I will ever complain again.
I like working. I have many different jobs/hobbies/interests and I truly like them all.
My favorite things:
Being anywhere with my husband or family
Teaching art
Teaching Sunday school
Painting murals
Going to church
watching Arika play volleyball (last kid in sports)
Helping friends and family with their lives-weddings/interior design/house colors
Being creative
Doing anything in art with any medium
sewing flannel quilts

I hope all of you can realize that all the things you do in life that make us sooooo busy......

You actually ENJOY!

May you Have the Peace of God that surpasses all understanding..

  1. Yaaaaay! So glad to here the good news about being done! Hopefully, for a long, long, looooong time. I am so thankful for my job. It's such a blessing. What would make it perfect is if I was working in a church, part-time with benefits and paid vacation. The only difference is, I'm not at a church. But even without the extras added on, I still loved my church job better than any job I ever had. But I am thankful to be working and to have my health as it is. I do have to do things to stay healthy, but it gets easier with time.
    God bless you, Bonnie, as you enjoy your family, friends and things you love. Hope to see you when we visit.

  2. Woohooo! I am so excited for you! And Annie and Josh! I hope I get to see you while I am home!
    Love you lots!

  3. Bonnie I am so happy for you. I know you have done well in this whole process and been an encouragment to all who hear your testimony and see you continue to be a positive influence to those around you. Thank you for sharing and being willing to tell the whole story.

  4. Yee-haw! Glad you're done. Those are great reminders and make me thank God for all I have and am able to do. Congrats to Annie and Josh! Merry Christmas and lots of love...
