You are such a lovely positive person. I don't think I will do it, it would make depressing reading.

First, I want to thank you for such  a positive comment in my journal.  I didn't really understand exactly what I was seeking until you wrote it, and you're right.  sometimes things just get jumbled up in my head  and it takes a while to sort through it all, lol. I'm hoping this is a good day for you.  I have lost 2 aunts to breast cancer, I'm glad you are another survivor.  Great entry, I should take the time to do this myself.
