And So it began

"ONCE UPON A TIME"....there came along this little lump...insignificant really when you compare it to the entire world of lumps. That is, right up to the point that it wasn't...insignificant I mean............... and so began my journey.

A NEWER SHADE OF I more then SURVIVE...I am learning to THRIVE...

OF COURSE... we all know things are bound to get a little crazy with a surprise around most every corner...not to mention an assortment of bumps and bruises along the way...but I am ever thankful for them all...they have all made me who I am. So buckle up, hold on tight and enjoy the ride thru what I lovingly refer to as LIFE

      Seriously......I should be feeling better by now (3 wks past chemo) with many things associated with this can't compare your journey and hope to mimic it...&...your body gets destroyed differently than anyone else’s so it will take its own time and process to rebuild. For real!!! I thought I would bounce right back and get skads of stuff done in this 4 week period before radiation....WRONG!!!! I am "butt draggin pooped" it is back to naps that suddenly hit right out of the blue

     I know my appetite hasn't missed me too much cause it's still I quickly discovered trying to eat a strawberry....on the upside...I can handle tomatoes (in uber small doses & not often). But I have a fav oriental soup...tried it last night....ROOKIE MOVE.....yes I was really sick. It didn't give me any "icky taste/flavor" eating it but soon as I was done. Sadly...nausea has seemed to take up permanent residence with me....not happy & migraines have shifted into high gear (especially in the evening) all my big plans for this "time off"....RETHINK the POSSIBLE.

      I have to tell you....I am a smidge busier then I have been in the past. Remember that I told you this gift of BLOGGING (computer knowledge to do it all) came about because of a calling (assignment) I was given in church last year to teach an online religion class (Old Testament) to students 14-18 who all lived out of town. The terror I felt and the VERY limited computer skills made this look like trying to climb Everest. I know I could never consider trying to learn all this (including how to do Power Points and then present them to the class over the net using Meeting Place) needed skills all alone so I turned to prayer and the Savior to help lift this burden and terror. Within 3 weeks I was jumpin around the class sight and commenting back to the kids (that is when I decided to type like I think/talk and not get all "fruffy") Talk about Power Points....I have made some INCREDIBLE slides for class and some for the Blog (see the top) and I give all the praise to the Lord and thank Him for the generous gift of healing my mind and having it all make sense to me.

     Sadly when I got sick they removed me from my class so I could focus on me and getting better and so I have REALLY missed it but have found new uses for it just doing pictures for people and this blog. Now wouldn't you know that 3 wks ago...VoR was asked to teach a religion class for 18-30yr olds and you guessed it.....I am creating all his PP for his class..duh!!! I'm a smidge rusty so I have taken what "AWAKE TIME". I have but overall....I gotta be honest and say I LOVE IT!!! and it helps that I still "WOW" him with them. That is the part I love about our are always given callings that stretch and make you grow and prepare you for other opportunities you could never see coming
