Today is a good day. I am 35 and I am a cancer survivor. Not a bad gig after all! Funny how randomly yesterday, I saw this commercial Yes, I cried.. Not because it's Ricky Martin... but because it's a little more real than it was when the commercial was first aired.

I will be grateful for ever 3/14 that comes along. May there be another 50 of them. Come on, how cute will I be as a little 85 year old?? Friggin adorable I bet. I will shrink because of the early menopause. So picture it, me 4'6 carrying around a little purse wearing glasses. I envision being a little like Sophia from the Golden Girls... ahhh.

A friend has requested prayers. She is having some testing done today on a lump or two that she found. Please keep her in your prayers.

Also, I just wanted to say how amazing people can be. In the past two weeks, I have heard from people I know, people who know people that I know, and complete strangers about the Reader's Digest article. It's so wonderful to hear how it touched people. One such example was the most beautiful card from a bunch of Mary Kay women in New England who read my article at one of their weekly meetings. And the other was a bracelet I recieved from a woman who owns her own jewelry making company. She read my article and sent me a pink ribbon bracelet just so I would know someone was thinking of me. Pretty awesome and touching!!

It's been an amazing experience so far. Life continues to be good despite bumps in the road. Mom is coming along. She had her second infusion monday. I suspect today will be kind of crappy for her. Please keep her in your prayers. She's a tough cookie, and will get through this, but prayers and love are definitely appreciated. And pray for Dad too. I know this is tough on him. And of course, pray for me, just because.

So here's to another 50 3/14's with cake for me!


  1. Happy Birthday My Princess!!!
    All my love,

  2. You and Grandma always did like Sophia. Go for it!
