Picking up the pieces and moving on...   |   Thursday, August 19, 2010

I'm gathering strength each day to move forward and try to remain positive. This so isn't like me and I'm not sure what the deal is... loosing a friend, loosing two friends, loosing someone my own age, feeling vulnerable, feeling helpless???
I need to keep my eyes on the prize, live my life to give back and move forward! I am reminded of the prayer we often see...
"Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can, and
the wisdom to know the difference." This is all something I can't change, but I do have the power to change some things... and I am more determined to make these women feel so good about themselves. And to make other women just starting their journey through cancer, feel brave and less afraid of the process.

Today's post is a 'teaser.' We have so many amazing and beautiful women to come over the next couple days, with incredible stories! I've got to get busy... I've only got a couple images to share this morning, but will have lots more to share over the next several days... stay tuned.

Please remember, there are some things in life we can't do a darn thing about, but there are so many others that we do have the power to control... our attitude is one. Be happy. Be content and love without restraint. Thank you all so much for standing by me through this very emotional struggle.

You wrote, "I need to keep my eyes on the prize, live my life to give back and move forward!" Bless you, that is probably true, but your sense of grief and loss and helplessness is real and it asks for a little time. Painful as that is, it is an essential part of our humanity. So I hope you'll allow yourself to stay with the pain for a while.

I am so sorry about this double tragedy. Almost beyond belief. What a story. I expect you feel some real anger that these two beautiful women have been taken from us. I am moved by your descriptions of how this project is affecting you, as well as how you are affecting the lives of others. It is a beautiful witness to God's Love and I know God is well pleased!

To my friend: Diva you are a strong and resourceful woman. I find strenth in knowing that you are handling your illness well. I know that you have your ups and downs, but you always have something positive to say. Keep your head up my super star. You always know that you have a friend in me. We are the original Divas!!!!

In that picture that is more than a woman, she is the absolute image of a survivor, the essence of change, and the outcome of success. I love u big cuzz n no matter what u go through u will always have us, to make u smile when it seems difficult and to uplift you spirit when u feel like there is no spirit to uplift. I love u get better soon.
P.s. And if anybody ask tell the Im working a very important case for the F.B.I.
