After a little over eight years, I thought it time I start blogging about that dreaded disease I had the displeasure to experience, which seems so long ago. Yes, folks, I’m talking about cancer. Breast cancer to be more specific. Or as I called them, “The Intruders”. I remember it like it was yesterday. The norm was to have your first mammogram at the age of forty, so a month after I turned that golden age, I schedule my first mammogram. The day came, and I was a little nervous not knowing what to expect. Thank goodness, the technician had wonderful bedside manners, and was very compassionate all the while explaining what was happening step-by-step. The standard procedure is to be notified at a later date after two radiologists read the film results.
I ended up receiving written correspondence from the facility. After reading it, I wasn’t really too concerned…
Truth be told, delivering or confessing shortcomings to loved ones may end up hurting or destroying relationships. Decide your actions using caution. Always use kindness and love, especially towards yourself. ❤
The months of August to January were a whirlwind of life events. First time meet-ups, new friendships, impending divorce, holidays, then marriage reconciliation. A new discovery of feelings and self-love had risen within me. Courage and strength surfaced and peaked to their highest levels. A voice that was once suppressed is now clearly heard loud and proud. I’m falling in love again and on a daily basis. It’s only the beginning of my new life. Good things happen each day, and still, the best is yet to come.

And the next thing you know, well, the scene was quite outrageous
My head was pounding as I woke in a hotel in Vegas
Corinne was sprawled out on the couch and starting to come round
Carolina on the floor, Ms. Kind was nowhere found
Strange clothing strewn across the floor, emptied bottles of booze
A gap where I once had a tooth, Corinne had new tattoos And in the other rooms we found a tiger and a…
And we finally met in California
on November 6 2015!
On Nov 5th I announced in my post “When Bloggership Will Meet” that something very special was about to happening and it truly happened we met here in California with Erika Kind, Marissa Bergen, Corinne and Me!!! We had great time and it was so wonderful to met the beautiful ladies behind their Blogs! It was indeed an emotional and beautiful day fulfilled with joy and happiness being able to hear our voices and hug each other
lots of smiles and sharing about us this time not behind a keyboard ❤
Our meeting venue was at this Starbucks!
While sipping a delicious Peppermint Mocha one of my favorite, we enjoyed our great time together talking a lot, and laughing a lot like friends that know each other from years and years, it was amazing how…
My eyes were open, but may as well have been squeezed closed tight. You appeared, and my eyes came into focus once again. The connection had always been there, but I had been blinded with distraction. Believe it or not, our paths have crossed in the past, but not to this extent. Naturally orchestrated, all was meant to be. Adoring pain, guilty as charged. Graciously, your affection, kindness, patience and understanding are admirably expressed. Although our paths may never cross again, I am eternally grateful, for my soul has been saved, and you don’t even realize it. With my complete sincerity, thank you.
