"...blooming recklessly..."

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. ~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke

Did you know May is Pampered Chef's Help Whip Cancer month?  So my wonderful neighbor, who is a Pampered Chef consultant, had an open house with a portion of the proceeds going to me!  Would you just look at the amazing spread of food she had!  Everything had a pink theme and was so tasty and delicious.  We had a fun gathering of gals.  I felt rotten on Wednesday for most of the day and was curious about whether or not I could attend.  But there I was, from chemo to a party in just 48 hours... I continue to feel so blessed.  And while I was enjoying myself at the party, another hot and delicious meal had been delivered to our door for the boys to eat. Thank you to the Spaeth family!

  1. Wonderful Spring photos Vicky!

    It must be challenging trying to balance your physical and emotional limits with your desire to acknowledge and recognize all the love and kindness being sent your way. Hope you find the balance that errs on the side of your well-being and recovery.

    Warm thoughts and a gentle hug being sent your way. (((hug)))

  2. Beautiful photos of spring and blossoms and hope! Wonderful.
