Hello Again…

Hello Dear Readers,

I realize time has gotten the best of me again.  Time and a host of other variables — illness, fatigue, pain, busy schedules, etc.

But I can say with complete sincerity that not a day has passed when my thoughts haven’t turned to you.

You have been on my mind.  Every single day.  I miss the outlet.  I miss the conversations.  I miss the connections I’ve made with so many of you.  And I miss those special few friends who were strangers before my first post and who I met through this blog.

And though you would never know it from my silence, your comments and emails and facebook messages have reached me.  They have touched and helped me.  And I’m certain they have helped others, too.

To my newest visitors and followers, thank you for being here.  Thank you for your comments and for taking the time to read, follow, and in some cases, share your personal stories.  Even if I don’t write a response right away, know that your words have touched me deeply, that your stories have touched others, and that you are not alone.

And thank you to those of you who have been with me for longer.  Your continued support and readership and comments always mean so much.

Thank you for helping me change the way people think about cancer.  Thank you for helping to create a platform where those who have been touched by cancer in one way or another can have a voice.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences.  It is so flattering, touching, humbling to read your comments.  You are all amazing.  And you have helped me far more than I could ever express.


And I realize it is fluffy Pinktober again…  I hope to have a new Breast Cancer Awareness Month post up tonight or tomorrow…  In the meantime, from what of seen, a good deal of what I wrote 2 years ago in National No Bra Day & Breast Cancer Awareness Month — OR — Please Put That Pink Can Of Soup Down & Put Your Bra Back On  still applies…


Thanks for reading…  Take care & talk to you soon — I promise!
