Lucky Girl

There is a bowl in our living room that is filled with cards, letters and even handmade drawings. These are all  another reminder of how lucky a girl I am.   Since I have gone "public" with my diagnosis, the continual influx of mail has amazed me and this bowl of cards does not even include all the emails I have received and stored in my inbox.

I was inspired to go through this bowl this past weekend.

It was overwhelming how many there were and yet, I sorted and read through them all as if I have never seen them before.  Individually, they have their own meaning- They make me laugh, smile, cry and give me comfort.  As a whole, something even more amazing can be felt -All the love and support that I have received and continue to receive.  Without all of that and all of you, I could not do this.  Thank you everyone.

  Just like one giant hug from all of you. 
Wonder Woman- Always my favorite super hero
Who wouldn't want that? 
Cool chicks of course.
You can say that again.
No sugar coating that one.
I have to say, there are a few perks.  
The Greenman- is the guardian of all living things and symbolizes growth and renewal. 
In the first corner, me.  In the second corner, the Big C.

Handmade cards always have special meanings.  I'm still climbing up the stormy side but I will be riding down that sunshine hill one day.
