Surprises I actually like!

When I got the mail today, I stared at the padded envelope in my hand and thought "I didn't order anything..."

But look!
A package courtesy of Catherine with the sweetest show of support... a strength necklace.

This, for the person who cried on the way home from learning her diagnosis while listening to Christina A.guilera sing "Fighter" on the radio... "I am a fighter... I ain't gonna stop..." Ah well. I'll get there. I know there will be many many tears between now and the point in the future when I finish treatment and (hopefully) get clear scans, and this will be one more thing that will help me get through it.
It's perfect Catherine. Many many hugs and thanks.
And of course, we need one of me wearing it, with my new short do:

That Catherine is a very good egg :) The necklace is just beautiful - and it looks so good on you with your short new 'do! :)

P.S. Very cool that our birthdays are so close together! Knowing you're also a Taurus makes me think you'll be stubborn enough to beat anything that comes your way ;)

Hi Lisa, I've been MIA for quite along while and I finally caught up on your blog...I am thinking of you. You've got the strength, endurance and determination to fight this. I know you'll win.
