Today at my Quilt Class, one of my students who has been gone battling Cancer...came back for the first time. I was soooooooooo excited to see her, I couldn't wait to hug her and tell her how very glad I am that she has made it through the battle. What an amazing lady she is. I first met her at my Dentist's office, where she works. Everyone loved going there partly because of her and her sweet bubbly personality. She was always happy and a great help to make you feel comfortable and not so scared ( which happens often in a Dentist's office, well it least it does with our family). When she told me last year that she had been diagnosed with cancer, my heart broke...but I knew she would make it... because she is so positive and had a great support group! So seeing her today after her battle...was a treat!
I love this quote ( below ), I really believe that is true. I think we are here to help each other.
I have a new appreciation for this when I talk and share things with all my ladies at work. How blessed I am to be able to see and work with such amazing ladies. We talk everything from our health, our grandkids and kids, recipes, our projects and our Sewing Rooms Projects that never seem to get quite done.
As I think of my life now compared to 5 years ago ( just having had a mastectomy ), it is better than I even imagined. Many of you helped me in my own battle with cancer.
I don't want this Thanksgiving time to pass by, without telling you how sweet you make my life! I love each of you, I pray for you and your families when you are in need; and I thank my Heavenly Father for such an amazing, sweet and talented group of ladies that I am so privileged to be associated with. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am so glad we don't have to go through this life alone...you make the journey.... worth it!
Good night dear friends!
