To my wonderful Mother...
at 8:43 AM
As this whole thing started to play out , my mind was so consumed with grief and fear that I knew I needed an outlet. I was an avid blog follower but most times I was just a plain lurker. I would escape into blogland just to divert my thoughts elsewhere.
I had been doing makeovers for awhile and at that point and strangely enough I always felt I was being led in that direction by a higher force. I knew someday I would find the answer why... well you could have knocked me over with a feather when I finally realized what it was. If you are troubled, doing something creative helps you work through it... that is so true, believe me.
The day we were told that the cancer had spread to the brain and the spine was like living the nightmare all over again. Guided by my higher being I opened the link "Create New Blog"... I was totally clueless, but I love a challenge and it wasn't too long before I was whipping in and out of it like an old pro. It was the very thing that I needed. It gave me a purpose to continue and a reason to use that creative gene that I inherited from my mother... and helped me to document my journey along the way.
Monday, February 22nd, 2010 we lost the most precious treasure we had... you will be so sadly missed. I dedicate this to you Mom you have always inspired me to carry on, no matter what the circumstances were. I love you and will miss you immensely .
