Hello friends – from the absolute humblest spot I can find in my heart thank you all for your words and care and concern you shared with me as I traveled down this scary road.   I’m relieved and a bevy of other emotions that I can’t seem to peg down, happy to tell you all that the path reports have come back and  – drum roll, I am Cancer free!

Today I made my first trip to town since my surgery, to have my hair cut.  I really needed that, not just the cut, but seeing my friend and her always smiling face.  She treated me to this lovely arrangement that she put together.  I quickly took this picture when I got home and I don’t think I did it justice.  I’m afraid they wilted a bit from having been in the heat of my car for a good couple hours.  It is in the 90’s today, so not a good mix.

I was in need of getting out of the house so while in town, I also took a stroll through the craft store, supplementing my crafting addictions followed by a lunch date with Mr. Cottage.  He took me to my favorite lunch spot, a Thai place that makes me full and content.

I can’t seem to put a finger on my emotions lately.  It is as though I have all these thoughts and feelings that are screaming to be understood and heard, yet I can’t seem to understand them.  I constantly feel like I am raw and waiting for something, I just don’t know what it is.  I wonder is what I’m feeling because I’ve had the shit scared out of me and a reminder to live life fuller ?

See you later, Bye

  1. Congratulations Kim! I can only imagine how relieved you must be and I could not be happier for you. I am sure when the time is right you will be able to sort out all your feelings but for now just enjoy the moment and do what makes you happy because you deserve it. I will be traveling til July but look forward to seeing what you have been up to on my return. =) Take care of yourself! xoxo


    1. Susan – If I recall correctly you have the big event coming up. I know you will make beautiful memories to carry you a life time. I hope you take many photos and share them on your blog. Safe travels and best wishes.

    Wahoo! What a blessing to be cancer free! I am so very happy for you, Kim. I’d say an emotional rollercoaster is to be expected, but that doesn’t make it any easier, just normal. But, it’s good to be normal, huh? Perhaps try some art journaling to get those emotions out and make sense of them? Just a thought. Much peace to your heart, Kim.


    1. Normal schnormal? Are you kidding me. Actually I was thinking about your idea of journaling and I picked up a craft magazine I purchased today and low and behold there was an amazing journal featured inside. I thought about their words and felt a connection. I’ve made journals before, that sit empty, maybe it is time I put some words inside.


  3. What happy news to share! Great to hear you are getting out! Take care and happy healing!


    1. Eleanor – Thanks again for sharing your heartfelt wishes and support. Hope you are creating your beautiful pieces. I miss seeing your work.


  4. The grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence– even though you may be standing in clover. Let your friends be your clover.
