It Takes a Village

I’d like to take a brief intermission from my rambling soliloquies to properly acknowledge my supporting cast:  my friends and family.

Thank you all for your kind words of support.  Your emails and phone calls have heartened me in periods of sadness.  They have reassured me when I waver.  Your stories of friends, aunts, sisters, and mothers who have all fought and survived are inspiring.  When you hear the statistic that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, you realize that it can (and, unfortunately, in all likelihood, will) hit pretty close to home.

Thank you to my friend Eva who very kindly conferred, organized, and set up the Lotsa HelpingHands site.  When I first logged onto the site and saw the list of generous souls who are offering their time and resources to help us, I lost my composure, something I have managed to avoid for the most part thus far.  Yes, you made me cry, people!

Thank you to my dear family.  Thanks for letting me slide on the housework, cooking, and general responsibilities.  Sadly, things aren’t too different now that I’m slacking, are they :)?

And thank you to my perfect husband who loves me unreservedly regardless of how imperfect I am and how even more imperfect I will soon be.  We’re now coming up on 25 years of couplehood!
