This picture was taken in September, 2006 while
visiting my sweet Aunt back home in Arkansas.
 You can read about that visit here if you like,
Much has changed since that visit.
My dear Aunt has since lost most
of her eyesight and is in an assisted
living facility.
Little did I know that day, waiting for me
when we returned home would be a message
from the radiologist asking me to come in
for another look at a recent mammogram.
To make a very long story short, I had a
needle biopsy... the results were not good.
 I had surgery, followed by six months
of chemotherapy.
At that time, I couldn't imagine
ever feeling well enough to
walk a mile, much less a 5k race!
This weekend, three friends and I
walked the Susan G. Komen 5k
Race for the Cure held in Bossier City.
The two of us who are survivors
and our two precious
friends & supporters joined with
 about four thousand
other folks seeking a cure.
We never know what tomorrow
will bring, but God does and
walks through that day with us.
 I've learned to cherish the time spent
with family and friends, knowing
we may never pass this "same way" again.
I am thankful for each morning and for
sweet friends who bless me just by
their presence. We had a blast!
I didn't make it to the cotton patch
last week....still on my list of things to do.
'til next time............

This is so welcome after a week of
100+ temps.
Planning a little trip to "smell the cotton" this week.
 Hopefully, I will have
some new "cotton" pictures to share.
Looking forward to Fall.

Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and, oh, so mellow.
Looking forward to the mellow
 days of autumn.
