over the last week - small little things have been happening to me to remind me how spectacular the world really is and how good-willed people are .. for example:
i WON the give-away at Inspired Design - Debby thank you SO much - i won a Kate Spade bangle, now the tough part is figuring out which one to choose! - HELP!
i was in the pharmacy wearing my Repetto yellow flats - as i'm waiting this security guard tells me he 'likes my shoes' - i think 'ok awkward, lemme just say thank you and he'll move on' - so i thank the guy - then he proceeds to tell me 'it's like walking on sunshine' - AUHAH moment - every time now i wear these shoes i'm going to think 'it's like walking on sunshine' - how can you not have an amazing day knowing that?! - Thank You strange security guard!
guess what shows up at my Mom's house yesterday?! - yup; limited edition Tory Burch Edye bag in red! - i've been on the search for a great red bag, this will go in a dust bag till September then i'll break it out!
my twig coat rack also showed up this week - tonight i plan to put it together
my West Elm storage bed set is being delivered tomorrow - i'm so over the moon with all the extra storage i will have in my bedroom and all the 'final touches' i can add to my room!
for all the small things that make me happy in the world
thank you universe
i needed that!
ANY SMALL THINGS GOING ON AROUND YOU THAT HAVE MADE YOU SMILE?!?!
i'll be a road warrior today - we meet with another surgeon today - and hopefully will get a surgery date for my Mom and her hiatel hernia, which is a major-major surgery - as much as i don't look forward to the 'after' of the surgery i hope this takes care of my Moms stomach issues -- after that she needs to see pain management neurologist to deal with her neuropathy from the chemo, her neuropathy is so bad she can't drive and walk/standing is extremely difficult -- in addition to the hernia surgery they are also taking her ovaries out in that same surgery -- then her final decision will be to have a double mastectomy or not (she got a lumpectomy when she got her cancer removed) - then hopefully no more surgeries for awhile!
Thank You again for all your continued support - cancer is one ugly battle wished upon nobody - but it can also be a blessing to live your life the best way you know how too - if you let it, it can open the doors to wonderful places and people - for this i am grateful! -- and more then anything else, it has made my connection to my Mom and myself stronger then ever before - we now have the ultimate bond!
