In a kingdom, far away, lived a girl. She had a quiet, ordinary life by most standards. One day, when she was having a particularly bad day, she became familiar with some characters I like to call the Lot sisters. There is Mona ,who likes to think that her life is more tragic than a Shakespearian play. There is B_tcha Lot, who complains endlessly that "life" is not "fair", and there is Whina Lot, who makes listening to her torture. Instead of becoming fast friends with these people who manage to "suck" the life out of life, the girl decided to seek other companions. She made a life-long friends with a different group of Lot sisters. There was Trya Lot, who always seemed to sleep well after putting her heart into every project. There was Smila Lot, who managed to melt even the coldest day,and last but most important, there was Praya Lot , who discovered that sometimes in life you need help from someone much stronger than yourself! Those truly are fabulous to know! Rock on! Normandy

I was trying to get myself in a healthier "place" a couple of monthes ago, and signed up for some "free" tests. The bone density test I came through with flying colors. The mammagram was my first, and although I had always been careful to do "self-exams" and watch for lumps, I was literally "blown away" with the results! I had masses in both breasts and ended up with surgery and reconstruction. Let me tell you that this is alot to handle in just a couple of monthes! I remember back when I first got out of nursing school. Florence Nightingale and I were classmates lol! Anyway, the radical mastectomies of that time were like seeing "train tracks"on these poor woman's chests,and they lost alot of the use of their arms. If there is a bright note in this blog, it is that I was so fortunate to have this happen now. Well, I had my surgeries-They did find cancer in some of the lymph nodes so I am also looking at chemo and radiation in the future. So, what's the "up" part of the story? My mom has been taking fantastic care of me, and although she had a broken back and I had moved in with her to care for her, now she is helping me! So, the long and short of this story is, I believe I was being looked after by an angel through all of this! I have a long road ahead, but feel very lucky to be able to share this with my spark friends! Rock on !!!!!!!!!!!

There is something that you should all know about me if you don't. I love to cook! I am very passionate about it! My mom, who broke her back in a car accident on Christmas eve is also the "best"cook I know! So, at the site of this horrible accident, she was left barely alive, with 2 broken fingers, a broken hand, 2 compression fractures, and an incredible amount of bruising. She spent over 15 hours in 2 emergency rooms to find the extent of her injuries! So, even though I had my house taken by the bank, I knew what I had to do! I moved in with my mom to care for her, and she ended up healing my wounds. No matter how beaten and wounded we are in life, there is always someone who is alot worse! My mom was married to the same man for 65 years-I have people who probably would not be able to stand the likes of me for 15 minutes! And so my project has been to get my mom inspired enough to do what she does best, and cook! So, "pop quiz, hotshot!" What is it in this world that you are truly passionate about! That is the secret to going after this life, and becoming the incredible people we all know you are! I cannot saY YOU ARE "BEAUTIFUL' enough-it is time to quit "apologizing"for who we are, and start recognizing who we were meant to become! Rock on!!!!!

Well, spark friends; it;s been a long, long, time. I see my last blog was on October 13th of last year. Since then, I have 1)had my dad die after a horrible time of trying t o find out what was going on 2)have my mom get in a car accident which broke her back on Christmas eve, and 3)finally lost my house to foreclosure this month. Life has a horrible way of kicking you in the b___ when you think it is finally settling down. "News flash" there is no such thing as a quiet life, and if there was, "who would want to live it?!" As for me, I am happy for the chance to at least have found something worth living for, worth crying for,and ultimately, worth dying for!!!!Rock on my wonderfully precious Spark friends -your fighting spirits never cease to make me smile!

I am so thankful for all of the fantastic things that have come my way! I have been away from spark people for quite some time, and it gave me time to do some heavy thinking! The wolf has "been at my door" as much as everybody elses, and it is very discouraging to have to work 2-3 jobs and still not come out ahead! I am in the process of forclosing on my house of 20 years. My job situation is getting better, but still was pretty sad for a couple of years! So, what is it that I could possibly be thankful for?! Well, I have a great family, and I am happy to spend time with them! I am trying to get my life to be less chaotic (good luck with that!) Anyway, I can always find things to be down about, but on the other hand, I can always find things to be "up" about! My boyfriend's mother, is a perpetual pessimist. If I ask her how she is on any given day, she says "horrible!" Her brain is hearing that every day of her "miserable, terrible, horrible life!" We can always find reasons to think that way, but I choose to try to see how incredible and interesting life can be! We are here for one short minute in the clock of the the universe! Tick, tick! Time to get back on that merry-go-round and have the ride of our lives! Rock on, Spark friends!
