Trying to Get Back into the Swing of Blogging Again.

Posted on: August 31, 2010

Me, a month before the stage 3 colon cancer was detected. Deceptically healthy looking,

Early August’s news that I had colon cancer kind of rocked my world a tad. For several days I struggled with the feeling that I shouldn’t bother to blog. I was worried about how I would feel and whether anyone even cared if I blogged or not. It didn’t seem to be that important in the grand scheme of things but after the first week of treatment, I realized something. That was . . . whether or not anyone reads my blog not, I really missed it. I like looking for things to share with others. I like the writing aspect. I have decided that while I might not post as often as I have in the past while I am on my journey to “good health” I am going to try and keep up the blog.

I’m asking those who read this to be patient with me over the next few months as I work my way through this challenging time.

I’m glad you will keep blogging. Those of us who follow you care about you. We want to hear about what and how you’re feeling.
Besides, keeping up a routine can help you stay productive and positive. Positivity and prayer made miracles happen. 🙂

Thanks so much for all your support. I now have internet in the new place so hope to have more opportunities to blog.


Hi Peg, Thinking of you this morning when I was writing. Stay strong and whip this thing. So happy you are still blogging when you have time and energy. Positive healing thoughts and prayers headed your way!

Thanks Dorothia.

I think of you often as well. I appreciate all your healing thoughts and prayers. They keep my spirits up when I have a challenging day.

My Favorites:

I love the children's movies Wizard of Oz and the Neverending Story. Both movies make me feel the lesson that hope is alive and well. After seeing UP this past week, it just might have a chance at being added to this list.

I love the cool colors of blues and purples.Those colors are peaceful for me.

I love The Velveteen Rabbit. Even as an adult, I still feel the urge to cry when he becomes real. I know, silly, but a good book can make me laugh and cry as it takes me on a magical journey.
