I'm here - at least for now!

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Hi everyone!! It is so good to be back to see you again. I don't know how long this will be as I still get tired easily. I want to thank all of you for your kindness and support while I have been going thru all of this. The infection was found to be in my gum. It's funny because it didn't hurt that much.

Yesterday I treat myself to an afternoon of good things. My hair is growing so fast now because it is summer, so I got it cut again. I really love it. I told my stylist that I'll wait until fall to grow it out, if Idecide that is what I want.

Next I had my finger nails done. I love, love, love the polish she used. I told her there were two polishes I love for summer, so we chose it together. I tell you, my nail tech is great. Anyway, my nails look so pretty.

Then I finished getting a pedicure. She has some new chairs that she was able to get a good deal on. They usually sell for thousands of dollars. While my feet were soaking, I was able to turn on the massage extra. It felt sooooooooo good!! I nearly fell asleep! I did shut my eyes and was able to rest. It was so quiet with just some music in the background. MMMMMMMM so nice!! We put the same color on my toenails as we did on my fingers.

My entire afternoon pleased me so much and relaxed me so much that when I got home, I got in my recliner and watched movies for the evening. I did come to SP for a bit, but couldn't stay on very long. I must apologize for not getting to everyone's blog or page.

When Bob would read your messages from my blog, page, spark mail, and goodies, I felt so good. It always makes me smile when I read the comments, but this time, the mile was closer to a grin. I felt so good that I was receiving payers and good thoughts. I am one who believes one can never get too many prayers and good thoughts sent their way. God and the universe sure have a way of providing what is needed and requested in prayer and those good thoughts. Bob was super in doing all the posts I asked him to do for me. I just couldn't ask to do more.

One of the things Bob told y'all was that I am thinking about a project for my friends. I hope that at least some of yu will be interested in participating. I'll explain more when I feel stronger.

Every day I click to help the Breat Cancer site to fund mamograms for women who can't afford them. Today also left my story of the journey. Can you believe I fit it in to just over two hundred words. I couldn't! We have a 300 word limit and I was afraid I would go over and was proud of myself when I didn't!! here it is:

"Little did I know when I grew out my hair for Locks of Love and had it cut 2 years later, that I would soon be buying my own wigs. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer I was crushed. But the lessons I learned from the entire journey have changed my life forever. The biggest change was truly finding out there are things we can't control, that we must accept, and if we want to survive we must go forward. The next was how very fortunate I am. I had a journal at home that I used to write five things for which I was grateful for each day. My attitude has changed since then to positive everyday with a determination to make someone smile feel better, and raise their self esteem. I smile more and try to give everyone a complment when I first see them. Through it all I had such a wonderful team and a supportive family and friends. I know others don't have that and so my husband and I try to help as much as we can. I am fortunate, too, because this was found early and I am still here with none showing since March of this year."

I hope y'all enjoy.

In a day or two I'll blog about my project for my friends here at Spark. And in case you didn't know, I am grateful for each of you very day. I say prayers for all, not just those in need, every single day. If it is news to you, I love each and every one of you.

This is the picture I used with my story. I really had long hair didn't I. It is two years worth!!

Peace, love, and blessings to each of you.

    So nice to know you are feeling a bit better. And what a nice day of pampering yourself. That had to feel good. I would have loved the massage in the chair. I probably would have just melted and oozed to the floor. Have never had a manicure or pedicure.

    Your hair sure was long. Waht a generous gesture to do that.

    Hope you are on the road to a full recovery and now that the infection has been pinpointed you can get the right treatment for it.

    Donating to Locks of Love really is a good feeling. I donated 3x in 5 years (18", 14", & 12"). Too bad you can't photoshop the hair onto what you look like now so you could show off how fit and fabulous you are now!

    Wow, that's two years' worth? Your hair really does grow fast! Glad you're back, Ev, and for what it's worth - an afternoon of pampering and watching some movies sounds good to me, too. You might not have gotten as much time on the 'net as you'd hoped, but I'd say you had a better time anyhow, lol...

    So glad you feeling a little better. I just had my hair cut after growing it for 2 years for locks of love. I had challenged some of my friends to do the same and they did. It is a great feeling to give.
