It's so hard for me to believe how much has changed in the last six months! Six months ago tonight, my mom and I had just gotten home from taking my girls to my aunt that was going to watch them during my first surgery for breast cancer. I fought tears as I kissed them… Continue reading Six long months ago…..
Cancer....Stupid cancer!! Our culture teaches us all about four letter words that can be so hurtful and angry.

Being hard on ourselves is what we do! Well, here I am, supposedly seven days into this 31 day challenge, and… Continue reading Day #5….geez, this perfection thing!
