A taste of heaven

by punchmommybelievesinlife


Heaven is a place of perfection. It’s a place where every second feels like unbounded exuberance.

Tapping my toes, staring at the wall, waiting for the door to open to the exam room. When it finally did, I practically leapt out my chair. My captain sat down and after a few excruciating niceties he put both thumbs up. The scan is good. 

In some way I feel blessed to have the chance to feel what it feels like to be told you are cancer free. It feels like a burst of all of the most wonderful things in this world rolled up into one incredible emotion. My one-time seemingly threadbare remission has held steady and strong. I am so thankful.

Soon after we received the news, we went to Candle 79, a famous vegan restaurant. DH and I shared two appetizers and one entree. My Live Zucchini Enchiladas were nothing short of perfection. The cashew cheese, crunchy sprouts, guacamole, cashew sour cream, toasted pumpkin seeds, cucumber-jicama salsa and mole sauce perfectly blended and made each bite a fresh, creamy and crunchy dream. We ended our meal with stewed figs, cashew creme, vanilla ice cream, and toffee sauce.

Today, I had a taste of heaven.
