The story on KVLY didn't air until 10 pm last night and we had to wait out the end of the convention before the start of the news. Then suddenly, it flashed on the screen and I had to laugh that Amy Unruh caught me at the place I inhabit so frequently- my computer desk. As soon as I saw my blog, I instantly thought of all you of that show up to read everyday. I felt at ease instantly.
I loved seeing the boys doing what they love to do, and having Crosby front and center is very typical for us. But then she got me. She got me good. She had asked me to scroll down my screen- and the photo she focused on happened to be the canvas that my sweet friend Sara had made for me: Its not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived. It felt like a heavenly hug from Sara. Amy didn't even ask me about it- she had no idea that she captured my heart right there.
The story is about me and my journey with Stage IV Breast Cancer , but I think Amy got it just right. At the center of my world, is much more than a cancer diagnosis, and what I hope you see is everything that is near to my heart.
She also took a close up of my new cuff bracelet from Kelly Rae Roberts... its says "shine your inner light, soar, always soar, on the brightness of being alive." I love wearing my word of the year.
Tomorrow is our big day- The Vicky Westra Benefit- the auction items continue to roll in much to our amazement and its shaping up to be an awesome event. Please feel welcome to stop by and say hi. I'm fairly certain there is no admission price so if you'd just like to stop by we'd love to see you.
Oh... and we of course left one
