Dear Friends,

One year ago today I was diagnosed with breast cancer and it has been quite the journey.

I'll never forget those moments leading up to the confirmation of our greatest fear. Thank goodness we were in the hands of such a caring and compassionate doctor. He educated us and calmed our nerves. It was in his loving care that we embarked upon the most incredible 9 months of my life.

I am humbled and grateful for every single person who has stepped forward in our time of crisis. We have been fed some of the most delicious meals, our house has been cleaned and our dogs walked. Gifts of all kinds were left on our doorstep. I have countless cards filled emotion ... and support. I have never felt such love in my life and I can now say without any inkling of a doubt that LOVE DOES HEAL.

As I move forward in my life, beyond cancer, I am learning to never take anything for granted. Life comes at you fast and furious and anything can happen at any time. I vow to pass along the love and to share my wisdom with anyone who will listen. I may not be perfect in my quest, but I will be honest and true and real.

And, on that note, thank you for following my journey as I've babbled on about the mysteries of life. I hope you've found humor in my words or have used them to look inside yourself a little deeper. I hope you feel like you know me a little better.

I have decided to move on to the next chapter in my life and to close my blog out later this week.

Thank you again for your love and support.

Happy Living!



  1. Susan--well, I've enjoyed getting to "know" you through your blog. I understand the decision to close the blog and move on. I've toyed with that idea myself. Happy Living to you too!

  2. Here's to the next step on your journey! :)
