    Celebration

    Yesterday I had a first, you would think that at the age of 61 I have all my first's but yesterday the 28th I had a HAIR CUT. the stylist was able to cut 1 inch off the back and top. Now I have a sexy shot cut that I feel great about, This was in celebration of my check up on Friday the 26th. I am going into my 8 month of remission when a year ago I was given about 6 months. My Dr. said that alot is due to my positive attitude and my outlook during my 6months of rad. and chemo. I am thankfull for everyday I have and for the blessing that the God gave me the chance to see my Greatgrand son born. Also I talked to alot of cancer patients that are either in treatment or in remission. This is so rewarding for me I have always enjoyed helping other. I am sorry that I don't write on here often, but I am very busy. I care for my 86 year old father, and my disabled sister. I also have a elderly son that has diability issue. I am raising a garden this year and have been canning vegatables. and freezing alot of different kinds of berries and apple, Love been able to do this. I thank God for giving me each and everday. It is so wonderfull to have faith. Good Day to everyone and please rely on God to help you thur this difficult time, and Please Please never give up. I am a living example of that. Love and Prays
