The past, present, and future walked into a bar together. It was tense. 🤪

Fantastic!!! Thank you for the joke and the hugs. Smiling instead of frowning here.

I sometimes am flummoxed to create my own funny and/or uplifting messages. I will choose to hold you in the light, for strength and healing. And sometimes laughter!

Just now catching up - thinking of you and sending love, light, a big hug, and just a bit of hell-raising. <3

The hell-raising part makes me smile! 😃

Still waiting for pathology, and hoping for one flavor over another, even though doing so seems like folly.

Beginning to feel like I have been sucked into a black hole!

Uh oh - maybe I need to up the ante on that hell-raising. Sending you good thoughts and all well-wishes. If I can offer an ear, I’m all yours.

Maybe it’s just because I am in the pre-treatment stage, but every test seems to turn up another thing that warrants further investigation. 🤷‍♀️

And it might not always be clear what’s curiosity and what’s concern. And there’s always the waiting. Unsettling for sure. It sounds like your team is thoughtful and careful. And there’s lots of thoughts and caring from over here in 3muses land 💕

Not clear… true. I’m not unsettled or worried about the tests or results… what they yield is reality. I am grateful for a doctor and medical staff that I believe is acting in my best interest. Is it true? I don’t know, but it’s sure better than believing they are not.

There is a weed growing in my mental space around this because I’m allowing my mind to water it. Thank you Beverly. I can stop watering it now.

Thank you Kathy. I gratefully accept! Thank you for reaching out.

After a fast and furious week, things are now on hold until I meet the oncologist next Monday.

Doing my best to live in the present moment. For almost a week… I don’t have to think about about C! 🎉

In a recent hedgehog call (Can you believe some of our TCW animal groups are still thriving?) I learned you didn’t join the most recent safari. Sorry to hear. RD said she has thousands of photos… I’m wondering if she is sharing some of them with you.

When we find the courage to share our truth with the world it’s interesting how resources show up to honor that courage. What is a resource? What is a friend? What is your friend in need? What is a friend indeed?

How do we learn? Who do we learn from? Is all learning observation? At what age does it begin? What is Wisdom? What is Fear? What is Worry? What is Beauty? What is Courage?

Because I have made sure others understand my interests, people share the most amazing things. Here’s an example of one of the amazing things that showed up for me and all I had to do was follow the link a friend provided because they know what I’m interested in…

“COURAGE has roots. She sleeps on a futon on the floor and lives close to the ground. Courage looks you straight in the eye. She’s not impressed with powertrippers and she knows first aid. Courage is not afraid to weep and she’s not afraid to pray, even when she’s not sure who she’s praying to. When Courage walks, it is clear that she has made the journey from loneliness to solitude. The people who told me she is stern we’re not lying, they just forgot to mention that she is kind.” ~J. Ruth Gendler

Did I mention that I believe she is fierce too?

Oh yes! She is definitely Fierce too!
