"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."


Some little milestones...

My Day +100 was last week! I've been so caught up in living my life that I actually forgot it was Day +100 until the day was almost over! I think that's a good thing. Life has been sweet and I am treasuring every minute of it. We've lost so many strong, wonderful souls over the past year and to let the unkown take over my life would be an injustice to their memory and for all others who have lost their battle with this disease. I heard this morning Roy Scheider lost his battle to a blood cancer - Multiple Myeloma, it's closely related to Lymphoma.

So when people like sweet Amy do the things they do to help people like me, it makes me so happy and honored to know them. If you click the link to your left, you will see she has almost hit her goal of $3,400 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training! She had this ingenious idea of creating Super Bowl squares, half the proceeds went to her TnT marathon funds, and the other half went to the squares. She sold 100 at $20 a piece. How cool was that? She is so close to her goal....she will definitely hit it by April!

Work is falling into place, everything seems to be coming back rather quickly. The memory thing is a hit or miss still. I am going to try my hand at some memory games, hoping those work. If anything, I can at least have an excuse to play games...right? :)

Thank you for all your continued prayers, I really do believe in the power of them. If I could ask to include in your prayers the following fellow Hodge friends who are undergoing or about to undergo sct's themselves: Bekah, Haydee, Scott, Darcy and Peggy. Wishing you all into remission soon!

With much love,
