A kick in the behind!

Lately I've found myself in a spot I vowed last October I wouldn't allow myself to be in.  I've been the whiny "why me" victim.  It's so unattractive, but with the news last week of more chemo in my future it was hard to to fight the backwards tumble.  I just want to move forward, not backward and to me Chemo is a step back.

I found myself looking at my nails today and am amazed at the havoc chemo wreaked on them.  Take a look, but I must warn you it's not for the faint of heart.


They are brittle, discolored, and look at those lines!  If you look carefully, you can see 4 lines.  One for each round of chemo I endured.

I also found myself admiring my how well my hair was coming in.  Then I got pissed cause I knew it would start falling out again when chemo resumed.

So I stopped, I pulled myself up, kicked myself in the ass and said "enough",  So what does one do to lift their spirits?  If your me, you get inky!  And there was no better way to do that then with the Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval collection from Catherine Pooler Designs. The sentiment from one of the sets in this collection was a perfect reminder of what I need to do!  And I couldn't help but smile after looking at all those cute little happy faces I added with a stamp that has been sitting in my stash FOREVER!

I can feel my spirits lifting already!!

OMG, I have just rejoined Stamp Nation and came across your website and am near tears after reading some of your blog. WOW what an amazing attitude and person you are as I don't know if I would be the same (although we all say that and I hope that I would be but who knows until they are put in that position). I am praying (I don't do this often enough but will give it an almighty try) that everything will be ok for you and your family and you most certainly "kick it's butt!!!"

Much love from Karen from down under
