You are all of course not surprised that I had Steve take my picture in the treatment room… for “posterity” he says to the ladies across the way. But really I had to share the smile on my face — after the nurse had a tough time with these incredibly strong VEINS of mine…. and had to re-launch the needle — (a few times – third time is a charm – right?!) and then ripping that bandage off my slightly hairy arms just was nasty pain….. not that I am complainer….. 🙂
Yes – I have the Optimist Creed framed on a shelf (a gift from Stephanie Haberkorn back in my day as a Relay specialist covering 3 counties in Northeast Colorado – I needed it back then too!). I subscribe to Jon Gordon’s Energy Bus emails giving a positive outlook daily and I truly love the Energy Bus and all of Jon’s books! I believe in motivation, positive thinking, visualization and that winning is 70% mental and 30% physical — in some cases 100% mental! 🙂
And yes that maybe a grey hair, not that I had any before I discovered this cancer…. so I am blaming cancer… but at 46 with no grey hair, no coloring ever in my life — I am so blessed! 🙂
SO here I am – Day 1 of my 4 month trek…..
