This isn't a great picture but the photographer is very cute. She takes all kinds of pictures with my camera.
Okay now a little story about myself........
One thing I didn't mention on my profile was that I am a cancer survivor. I had a form of sarcomas in my leg. I had three surgeries, no chemo and no radiation. My kind of cancer is more common in young children and actually quite rare. Wondering how long I have been cancer free------20 years and one month. Cancer changed my life in so many ways.
The morning after my second surgery (first surgery I was misdiagnosed) I woke up crying. I didn't realize that my husband was still home and the our three children were already off to school. He came into the bedroom and asked what was wrong. I said, " I just feel like something is wrong." He said, "There is something wrong, the doctor called last night after you fell asleep and said that you have cancer." The first thing I said was, "But I want to have grandkids." Well I survived and now have 6 beautiful unique little grandchildren. God is so good.
When I was diagnosed I was selling real estate. I couldn't handle adults for awhile. I felt they were having a hard time dealing with me having cancer and I didn't want to talk about it all the time. I went to work in a day care. I would rock those babies and forget my troubles. My husband was my rock. I couldn't make decisions and he took over. I healed and began my new life. While working at that day care I met a little boy that needed a home.....he moved into our home less than one year after my last surgery. I also had always wanted to be a clown. I knew I needed laughter in my laugh SO I went to ClownTown and learned to be a clown. I also went back to college and got a degree in Early Childhood. I had loved children all my life and this was the greatest therapy ever.
I honestly can't believe it has been 20 years. I am thankful for all 20 of those wonderful years. So there you have it....my cancer story.
