• Watching Dolphin Tale with my daughter, who sweetly put her hand on what little hair I had on my head and started rubbing it gently – “you’re pretty , Mommy”, she said. Now, that’s some unconditional love
  • Trying to feel useful by going to Target to do a little shopping after my 3rd or 4th chemo, needing something on the other end of the store, and not being able to make it across to the other side despite leaning on the shopping cart for support


  • Trying to shop, again, but this time at WalMart.  I was feeling yucky, had yet another cold and was totally bald.  I had a baseball hat on and thought I looked pretty inconspicuous.  A woman approached me and asked if I was a survivor – I said “I’m trying to be.”  She shared with me that she was a 10 year survivor, gave me a big hug, and told me I would be fine. It was exactly what I needed to hear, not to mention a much better shopping experience than Target! (no offense, Target – you know I love you!)


  • Anemia – no fun.  ‘Nuff said

    God bless you! I really am so glad to see what a fighter you are! God blessed me with my kiddos to keep me company when I feel so alone dealing with new issues from lupus. They make you feel so loved! This made me smile.
