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!

Laughing 'til our sides hurt

How fortunate I am and how grateful!  This was the best Thanksgiving of my life.  All three adult children were present as well as our son-in-law and daughter-in-law and our two grandsons. We sat and chatted, reminisced, updated, reported and solved the world's problems. We laughed a lot. The dogs were well behaved. The chickens provided new amusement. Dinner turned out, Steve's pies were a hit.  Everything, just everything, was perfect this year!

  1. Isn't it wonderful when it all comes together and you can enjoy food, family, health, laughter, etc? We had a perfect Thanksgiving too - not that everything went perfectly (the Turkey was a little dry, the niece showed up late, the kids got jealous of time spent with Uncle Tim, but the whole event was PERFECT!
