I had a full weekend this past weekend...The Relay for Life Cancer Crop was this weekend at the Scrapbook Corner...Friday, Saturday and Sunday! I had never been to a crop like this before and it was really wonderful....great food, contests, prizes and fellowship with others....and all the money went to cancer research for all kinds of cancer. I am looking forward to the next one. I met alot of new people that share in this passion of paper well as got to spend alot of time with Lisa and Kimberly....Channel 4 did a great story on the event on the 10:00 news last night....Lisa and Kimberly are now TV stars! All the food and prizes were donated, so all the money went to benefit cancer....representatives from the Cancer Society were there with games, prizes and setting up the food etc....what wonderful people! Can't believe that I stayed up until midnight on Friday and Saturday night both....I am usually in bed way before then!

Friday night Lisa, Kimberly and I attended the visitation for Anita....I already miss her so much. I get up every morning thinking of her and wishing that I could talk to her....she will be greatly be missed by every life she touched with her humor, inspiration, encouragement, strength, faith and courage...she was an amazing person and certainly knew the art of friendship....I know that I was blessed by her friendship....she will live in my heart forever!

On Sunday, I met Mica for breakfast and then went to church...have not been able to go in four weeks because of chemo and this leg infection....I can already tell that this boost has made me feel better and that in spite of getting chemo again this morning, I will have a better week! It makes such a difference to me being able to start my week with church. After church, went back and finished the crop....I don't think anyone wanted it to was nice meeting new friends and laughing and sharing stories with them. What a great thing for the Scrapbook Corner to host such an awesome that place!

Chemo again today..ready to continue "Fighting Like a Girl", but sure will miss my team member, sweet Anita!

The Relay crop sounds like so much fun! I hope I can join y'all next year.

Thinking of you and chemo, praying that you'll be comfortable and that somebody will make you laugh.

Love you,
