I think my eyebrows are thinning, but I also lost a couple pounds and feel like my clothes fit much better, and I can wear some things that I never could squeeze into before!
Hell of a way to lose weight though, huh?
I am also feeling very sentimental and grateful, but this is good,
and I am so much closer to God, and praying constantly!
I'm finding it very easy to share my faith these days, and don't miss an opportunity,
while people are actually listening to me.
I am really happy, despite the fact that I am fighting a life-threatening disease!
I guess it's because of all the love and attention my dear family and friends are giving me!
I feel stronger, and more courageous, although I do get weak, tired and achy sometimes,
but it passes. It's because of promises, like the one I found in Psalms 31:24
I find new meaning in words such as " hope", and "courage" as I claim them as my new favorite words, my affirmations. I am claiming these promises, believing them more profoundly.
I don't really want to be around any negativity, but it really "can't touch me".
I don't take it personal, in other words, as I am getting tougher. A tough old bird, I am.
So there are lots of good things coming out of this dreadful breast cancer experience.
|Painting after chemo today! Poor selfie though.|
Be of good courage and he shall strengthen your heart,
all ye that hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24
Still working, I painted today after Chemo.
No, I am not taking it easy, my dears, I can't.
Maybe later I won't be able to do as much,
but I am trying to stay very active
and keep things normal.
|Mom and me making a joyful noise!|
I had a nice little visit with my Mom too.
We talk on the phone every day, but she hadn't actually seen me
and I wanted her to believe me, that I really feel pretty good.
She keeps asking, "Are you telling me the truth? Do you really feel okay?"
We still sing our song every night over the phone, it's a ritual, very sweet.
Tonight we sang our song together in person.
|Mom's hands, holding the hymn book.|
This is the song she sings with me every night.

I've been celebrating Thanksgiving each day, with a different part of my family,
love being with them!
and I am not sick of turkey, I love it, and I still want more pumpkin pie.
Tomorrow, I'll get me some at sister Beverly's and I'll see all the rest of my lovies!
May you be blessed with family and friends
and lots of Thanksgiving gatherings and fun too!
Then we'll be ready to all start Christmas!
