A peacock without plumage! lol


So this is me again....the day after letting my hair scatter to all four winds that blew that day....I have been going out without head covering in hopes that other people who are self conscious about something about themselves say a BIG ...."SO WHAT?" It is not the size and shapes of our bodies that defines us....it is who we are in our hearts and the hearts of those that love us that determines our true character and self worth.


Your self worth is what you deem upon yourself...........carry yourself high and others will follow suit....be strong and other will see you strong, be compassionate and others will show compassion....


Life is good and I am blessed and I am thankful for every moment. It is not the cancer that causes me to weep, it is the love that I receive unconditionally, from family, friends and strangers that I have only met in my heart....the simple, loving bond of human connection is what fills my heart as well as my eyes with tears....you are all so precious to me and I love you dearly!


Lovingly,


Kimberleigh

i happened to stumble upon your page.. i guess that was either due to my snooping around blogs or fate. i'd like to think of it as the latter. although i've been on your page for less than 2 minutes, i took a quick look around and would like to wish you nothing but happiness, joy and love. please do not give up on your fight, have faith.. have hope.. stay strong. hugs and kisses, amy.
p.s. thank you for the story on Shane. i will definitely be writing him a card!

I wish I was as strong as you Kim. I wish I had the support system you've been blessed with. You're beautiful inside and out!

When I had chemo before and lost all my hair, I would get so frustrated because I'd spend so much time trying to make it appear that I had eye lashes and eyebrows and then I'd start sweating and it would melt away. LOL

Love you, Lahoma

Joined this blog yesterday. I came across your photo. I just wanted to say your
pic shows a beautiful woman who does not let an illness define her. I see someone who is strong and ready to live. By the way I don't see a woman without
hair. I did not read your blog as not to invade your privacy, But I did read
the words attached to the photo. The picture is a moment in time, A snapshot
of your Courage, and Determination. Your eyes are the mirrors to your sole.
Your sole is where your beauty and strengh lie, not on your head...May God
Bless You. Take Care. nascarroxxs8

manda2177 said...

So many people visit your journal to read of your courage and fortitude.  If you, and anyone else reading this, has a moment, can you stop by and offer Holly some of your courage?  She suffered a miscarriage this morning, and I thought it would be nice if the J-world was able to embrace her and support her, as they have so lovingly done for you and so many others.

I appreciate anything you can say or do to help.
