    I discovered your sweet blog this morning, and look forward to reading – so many inspiring ideas, and will peek in often. I had breast cancer and a mastectomy almost 6 years ago. My heart and prayers are with you and so very much want to encourage you to take one-step-at-a-time. You are doing so admirably well!

    SON-shiny hugs … Dori

    I’m blessed by your thankful list. You were the one before me at Ann’s today, so I came by for a visit. Your list shows you are truly living out the hard eucharisteo. I thank God for you!

    I have been following your blog for a couple months now–not knowing how to respond to the challenges you face, but praying for you. Today, I just thought I’d let you know : )
