Where I'm From

I am from the wet green city, from libraries and board games, diaries and crazy socks.
From Barbie's and bike rides.
I am from the 70's carpet and steep driveway, red roses and running through sprinklers.
I am from Sunday potlucks and loud laughs.  
From Holtz's and Suttons and Clingmans. From Beulah and Gertrude.
I am from worry and stubbornness.

I am from fierce love.
From reading books and weekend visits to Grandparent's.
I am from sanctification, from bended knees and complete surrender.
I'm from Oregon and Revolutionary Heroes, and the first Doctor in Colorado. 
 From canned green beans and fresh pressed cider. From  famous cookies and hot rolls on Thanksgiving.
From the Air Force guy who fell in love with his best friend's sister, the German's and their Babka and dimples.
I am from high school journals with tattered photos, year books and keepsake boxes holding in them moments, tears, laughs and love.

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!!
