Happy Times at Home Together

The title of this post suggests I'm feeling good. In spite of the current condition of my cancer and the seemingly endless treatments (which unfortunately will need to continue into 2013), for the most part I am feeling good. However, today I'm feeling a little I wanted to post something happy that I can look at from time to time when I feel this way - to cheer myself up. :-)

This picture was taken on one of the happiest days of my life. It was actually just a few weeks ago. I had an idea to take some pictures of my kids and me while they were home from college for a few days. I wanted to make my bald-headedness (from the chemo) something to laugh about and to let other folks (who may be dealing with cancer or some other devastating illness) know that even when you and your family are struggling through the difficulties of the disease/treatment/etc., it's important to take advantage of special happy moments and have fun when you can.

So that's exactly what Megan, Milo, and I did; and we had a LOT of fun that day! I'm not very skilled at making videos; but I think in spite of that, this one turned out pretty good...and I'm proud to share it:


  1. You have the most beautiful smile! I bet your post will find it's way into someone's heart for inspiration, just when it is needed the most. Cindy, it is great that you thought this way, when you just as easily could have moaned about wishing things different. Just one of the reasons I admire you. Hugs!!

  2. Thank you so much for your kind words, Peggy. I've missed hanging out with you and the gang at GCU. I just haven't had the energy to do much. But now that I've discovered Zentangles, I'm going to try to make more artwork while I'm out and about getting my treatments...and hopefully I'll be able to create more cards with this new art style. :-)

    Thanks for coming by and commenting. :-) I appreciate hearing from you. xox

  3. Hi,

    I have a quick question about your blog, would you mind emailing me when you get a chance?



  4. You didn't give me your email address. Also, I'm going out of town for an extended trip; so don't be surprised if you don't hear back from me for quite awhile.


  5. Just discovered your blog. Enjoy reading them.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery and sending you lots of love..
