New Beginnings


I'm on the threshold,
so to speak,
or am I going through a doorway
into a new world,
a new life....
the battle with the big C.
I had always thought that Craig,
my dear husband,
was 'the big C'...
but there's a bigger one out there:
CANCER!

I was just diagnosed yesterday...
and if you're game,
I'll take you along on this journey.
I'm still staying focused on my art,
but I will also have to focus on
overcoming the really big C
for a while.

So come on along,
if you're game!

As always, 
I welcome your comments -
perhaps more of you will have something to say
in the days to come!

I did a good bit of sewing
and thinking today.
Also went to the gym
and pumped some iron.
Life is good!

Happy Friday Everyone!

peace to you!!

Oh no Judy, not you too! I'm so, so sorry. I'll be thinking of you very, very hard.
I hope you are able to feel my thoughts in some way. Wish I could give you a BIG HUG in real life, but you just have to settle for a cyberhug.
