My goal is to balance my life with better healthy eating habits and exercise, as well as living my life with simplicity and grace.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer on May 26th, 2010. I had a lumpectomy on my birthday, June 8th ( I gave myself the gift of life) and received my birthday wish of no nodes!! I finished radiation treatments (33) on August 25th, had a full hysterectomy on September 17th. I will start hormone therapy soon.
I cherish each day and all its beauty....I took back my life the day I was diagnosed and I am not looking back but forward...appreciating all that is to come my way!!

    Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, "This is the real me," and when you have found that attitude, follow it.

    "May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.”

    There's a lesson in everything we do, if we just have eyes to see it. It's not what happens to us that matters as much as how we take the experience and make something of it.
