caring, sharing and having hope

I am dedicating this post to the Uniboob Club!! Taking my lead from Cliff over at WIXY's Gone Bananas, he does such a great job introducing bloggers, I want to comment on how beautiful this Blog by Cristina is.

First off as many of you may already know, my mother died of cancer and I watched her weather away to nothing from this horrible disease. Cancer sucks. What Christina has done is not only create the most beautiful dedication blog about cancer, she has made it so that the family members of survivors and hero's have a place where they can tell their story.

I gotta tell you, when I first started blogging I had no idea how powerful this wonderful tool really is, until I came into this world, my world was so much smaller. i feel so very connected and that I have a voice and that I have people who have common interests and hobbies and there is a connection here that I never knew existed. The last post I read from The Uniboob Club, was about a woman who had lost her battle with lung cancer, the same as mom, but the story is told by her daughter and her husband and I could just hear them both sharing their story as I read along and it is so heartfelt and wonderful. If you get a chance stop on by just click one of my links to Christina's Blog or click on my blog roll link to the left of my blog. Have a read watch the home video and leave some words of encouragement, as they are so very helpful and welcome in this community. Thanks for reading and to those who leave me comments, I really love everything you have to say today's thought;"I am more and more convinced that our happiness or unhappiness depends more on the way we meet the events of life than on the nature of those events themselves."

I read that post and thought how sad to die at a relatively young age. Glad that you blogged about it here.

I am sorry that you lost your mom so young! Mine died suddenly when she was 58! It rocked me to my very soul since we had so much unfinished business. I will check out the blog you recommended. Love the quote here too! Hang in there Honey! Love, Lisa
