{ crazy time }

wanted to let you all know that my sister Jo,
will most likely be heading to hospice within the week in Tennessee...
which means that I will be heading to Tennessee with my Mom.
not sure when, will let you know.
in the meantime,
I will continue to work here, on my Christmas/Winter things,
trying to keep my mind and hands occupied...
want to THANK all of you for your friendship, support,
thoughts and prayers for me, and my family
throughout this entire journey...
Breast Cancer not only affects the person diagnosed with the disease,
it is an insidious, dark and evil thing that wraps itself around
that person's entire family and network of friends...
please have your yearly breast exams, self-check every night,
and if you do find something take care of it right away.
Wishing you all Peace & Wellness~
Blessed be,
