On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Just one of those days

First my daughter woke up with a 102º temperature after a night of coughing. Then the ATM machine ate my card this afternoon. Things went downhill from there. Beulie did everything wrong in her training class. After we left she pooped in the parking lot and came home and peed on the living room rug. My perfect puppy, the one I'm counting on to excel in advanced training and get placed with someone who really, really needs her!

To console myself, although I didn't get home until almost 10:00 pm, totally fried, I painted this cheerful flower. I have no idea what it is, but it was the best thing that happened all day.

    It's pretty. I love that pink color. Sorry about your crappy day; hopefully today will be much better!

  2. I can see why this cheered you up - it's a very cheerful flower. Hope today is a better day.


  3. You are so right. Observing something outside of ourselves; using mind, brain and body; and getting immediate feedback can put us back into Flow and remind us that deep contentment IS still available to us.Hope tomorrow is a MUCH better day.

  4. Hi Amy, Cheryl and KPW -- Today was such a much better day! Thank you so much - Barbara
