    Hi Julie, Fourteen days ago, is such a short time ago. It is about the same for me. Facing new challenges and new successes to come too. Just wanted you to know that I am grateful that I found this place. And that I love for your photo above. Beautiful! Maeve

    Does any of this resonate?

    Waiting for surgery.. Wonder if this resonates with anyone else.
    So much to get done. Kids to visit and tell. Teens to get ready.

    Friends wanting extra time and assurance that I will do whatever it takes. Husband to not take granted. Motel room to order. Events to cancel. Neighbors (who told them?) being concerned and giving advice that neither applies nor is helpful. Some woman I hardly know at all crying that she was just getting to be my friend and now I am die-ing (where did that notion come from?.. both the die-ing and the friendship. I do not even remember her name).

    So many ludicrous things and people hugging me.. People I never hugged before hugging me.

    Girl friends wanting time, and me being so happy to be with them and just be normal and funny, and laugh. Then they gave me mums for my yard where I can see them from my kitchen window, and I feel sooo loved and happy.

    Hyper awareness to the beauty of my life, and the peace of staying in it, or even leaving it. This is real, and will remain so.
    Wishing Drs. had believed me sooner that something was wrong, and done more than the pap test. Wish I could be as good an advocate for myself as I am for others.

    Whirling thoughts and my stomach hurts so bad. 6 months of feeling like I had my period and am sooo tired of it.
    Worn out and still need to keep going.. Only doing the absolute essentials.. Amazed at the women who went before me in this journey.. Amazed indeed.
    Grateful to all here
