No Questions Today

I know I said I wasn't going to post today but I just feel very moved to do so. First I wanted to show you all this beautiful picture that we had done just the other day. It's my sister and I holding my mom's hand. We have said all along that the only things that have stayed the same about our mom are her heart and her hands so this is very meaningful to us.

Also I must say thank you to Julie from Flip this Body and Bobby from The Bestest Blog. They have both posted beautiful sentiments about my mom and I on their blogs. So I encourage you to visit each of their blogs! They are two of the nicest bloggers I've ever met!!! Not only have they mentioned us but they have set up a way for other bloggers or anyone in general to make donations to the American Cancer Society in my mom's name, Dee Myers. This means so much to my sister and I!

This Friday I will be walking in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life to raise money for a cure. I believe very deeply in ACS and the work they do! In fact the ACS provided my mom with a beautiful wig for free!! So please if you do feel moved to do something visit Bestest Blog to contribute! Again thank you Julie and Bobby!

I am hanging in there fairly well. This whole process has been very traumatic for me. So today is actually a bit of a celebration of some ways. When I woke up this morning I realized that today is my mom's first full day in heaven and that this is her first full day pain free, worry free, and medication free in a long time. That is a blessing to me. I will miss her each day for the rest of my life I have no doubt about that but she fought the hard fight and has found her way home.

You're right. She is finally at peace. Thank God, she can now rest without pain.

And it's the least I can do. And I always do the very least. :-)

Hello Jessie,

I do love the picture. My sincerest condolences on your recent lost of your mother. Actually one of our own Tasters as well as her husband are both cancer survivors.

Wishing you the best.

That "anonymous" is a spammer (or two). You need to enable "word verification." Your loyal readers will understand.

Those links are especially annoying at a time like this. They ruined a memorial site I had up for my son Jim (died Aug 22, 2001). They took over the "guest book."

Again, our hearts go out to you in your loss.

Hey Jessie,

I just wanted to pass along my condolences on your lost.

I also have finally returned the favour of you adding a link to The Ordinary Adventures of Tomas to your blogs and have since added links to your 2 blogs. I hope Tomas and his ordinary adventures can provide a few laughs for you.

Once again I'm sorry for your loss.
