I made it!

Guys, my weekend was mostly HORRIBLE.  I was nauseous and tired and my head hurt.  I don't even really remember what we did on Saturday afternoon.  For me, I think it involved sleeping.  I thought I was going to puke several times.  I can't remember the last time I felt so awful.

And today?  It's like someone flipped a switch.  Aside from feeling a bit tired and craving mushroom gravy, I think I'm fine.  And I made it.  I made it through the weekend.  It amazes me to be on the other side, but here I am!  I don't take the credit.  There was a lot of prayer involved, both my own and yours. 

The best part of my weekend was little things.  A letter from a friend reminding me I'm not alone.  Going to church with the family.  Watching Daria in bed.  Buttered toast.  Ice water.  Hugs from my kids.  Gentle kisses from my husband.

It's really all about the little things, isn't it?  Finding joy in the little things.

Other than calling the scheduler to find out when I'm supposed to show up next time, I plan to banish cancer to the back burner for the next week or so.  Today I'll be catching up, so if I owe you an email or a phone call or a picture, I'll get on it.  I hope to do some sewing.  The kids and I will be working hard on our school week.  Lots to do.  :)


  1. We are so glad to hear you are feeling better. We wish we lived closer so we could help out during bad weekends like this. We miss and love you guys. Hope you have an excellent week. Love, Poppy and Nana

  2. So glad you're on the other side:) And I think cancer should just stay on that back burner, though it will be great when it gets off the stove, period! Keep kickin' ass and we'll all keep praying! Love, Jessica:)

  3. We are so glad you are feeling better!!! Enjoy all the little things this week. Life is really about the little things. We love you and will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Mom and Dad

  4. Every night when we say our prayers the kids name a few things to pray for and every night Mary prays for you ;)
    We love you, Sheri!
