I think it’s brave, too.

For me, brave equates to inner strength even in the worst of times. I’m touched by my dear friend’s consideration of my struggle and it’s the best possible compliment I’ve received. Thank you, Jens aka Count Lurpak.

Sharing my experiences with metastatic breast cancer …

This passage by Emily Dickinson sums up beautifully why I strive to honestly share my cancer experience and caregiving of one husband with depression, as well as others who I love and come into my life to give and receive support. I hope you find something in her words that pertains to your life. Giving back rewards us with humanity and humility – making the world a little less lonely for giver and reciever. I thank you for sharing my life’s rollercoaster ride. Keep your seatbelts on!

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain.
If I can ease one life from aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin unto its nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
– Emily Dickinson
