First, I would like to say I am thankful for creative places to snooze and cuddle. I am also thankful that I was safe through the thunderstorm that we had today. We don’t get them often.
I would like to take this moment to be thankful for our health. Even Georgia. She is still with us. The Woman had a conversation with a friend. Her friend was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago and this was their first opportunity to sit and chat.
The Woman was moved by the sincerity in what was said. As they chatted–all those things that make you wonder what could have caused this to happen, her friend said “I don’t worry about “why me” very much. I mean the first answer that always came up was why NOT me?”
We are thankful to have our lives touched by someone who has found so many positive learning experiences from something so traumatic. We can only hope that in some small way we can pass on that wisdom to others.

Chey, we are very glad that Georgia is still with you. It sounds like your mom’s friend has a great attitude. Our dad’s mom is a breast cancer survivor, and our mom’s dad is a prostate cancer survivor. Nearly everyone knows someone who has been affected by one of these two cancers.
Your Mom’s friend sounds very smart. I hope she fights very hard!
Gandalf & Grayson says
