November 29, 2008 a Sad Day

Today, I learned that I'm not prepared for death. I lost a dear friend that I met on this website. I keep telling myself that I'm okay with dying, that I accept it. After learning about her passing, I found that it's sad for those left behind. That's the part that hurts the most.

The day my life changed!

In August of 2008, I was sitting in my OBGYN's office and was told that a large tumor was found in my uterus. I had an ultrasound a couple of days before and was told by the radiologist that I had fibroids. I was not worried and knew there were ways to remove them. Well, what a surprise to hear this was not benign, but malignant. I was shocked and speechless. I then had to go home and tell my husband and 4 children. This was the day my world stood still, seeing the shock and dismay in their eyes. I said that the doctor had a plan in place to cure me and there was nothing to worry about.


I am a caretaker for 2 sisters. 92 and 90. The 90 year old has been diagnosied with advanced lung cancer and " given " 6 months.

Malnourished Snow Angel

I apologize for this being such dark lighting but I was out in my backyard at around 11:00pm in my pj's, flailing around on the ground to make this angel in less than an inch of snow. The snow melted with day break so I had to take the picture at night while the snow was still there, 'Carpe diem', you know...I seized the moment.

This is my snow angel and if you squint really hard...you can see the wings.
