A part of me wants to make sure I am living all of life that is out there for me to live. Every little drop of it. But at the same time, I want to make sure that in that space of living, I allow it to change me.
I need to change the physiology of my body so that it doesn't continue to grow cancer, to host cancer, to know cancer. If I don't feed my brain with new thoughts, and nourish my soul with sustenance of a spiritual kind, then how will I ever overcome cancer? Chemo, radiation and surgery are only a few tools in the arsenal needed to combat cancer.
When Karen @ This Old House II, mentioned that she had made a new header for my blog, I was excited. I love the warmth I feel when I visit hers, the vibe is inviting and I love visiting her corner of the world. She brings it to life through her photos and talents as a photographer. Please go visit, you won't be disappointed!
But before I could accept Karen's gracious offer, I had to let go of the old. I would be taking down Gitz's beautiful header and blog makeover she surprised me with last spring. Yet, somehow, I knew she'd want me to move forward. I've saved Sara's header and will make it into a piece of art to have displayed on my desk. So I took a big breath and said yes to Karen. I am still coming from a place of yes, a place of, I'll try, a place of one thing different.
And look at the beauty Karen created for me? I love the shabby-chique feel of it. The warmth, and of course my love of the color blue all combining to give me a new look to my bloggy home. Thank you Karen!
I have lab work tomorrow, Dr. Panwalkar, and then chemo.
And later this morning I have an incredibly humbling event happening, and I will be sure to come back and share with you when I am back on my feet later this week!
