Merry Christmas from sunny south Florida!
We're having a great time visiting family and catching up with friends. I have spent the past two afternoons out by the pool just soaking up the warm, sunny weather. This is exactly what I needed.
And how's this for a "feel good" story... I went to a local nail salon to get a pedicure this morning. As I was sitting in the spa chair, I told the woman who was working on my feet that I had just finished chemo and was so excited to be able to get a pedicure again. I went to pay for my service and someone had paid for my pedicure.
I found out it was a woman who was getting a pedicure two chairs down from me. Unbelieveable. I gave her a big hug and thanked her and told her she really didn't need to do that but she insisted.
I told her that she needed to promise me that she would do her self-exams and get her annual mammograms and she promised. We hugged and I left the salon with yet another example of how huge some people's hearts can be. Amazing.
I know that when I get through this -- I will definitely need to pay it forward.
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season spent with those you love.
