For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself.  For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful. I unplugged and reconnected with nature and it made me incredibly happy. This enabled me to see ME for the first time in what seemed like forever and I started to understand what was missing in my life, what I needed and what I no longer needed.  For a very long time I have equated

Thanks for the memories

I love dancing. I grew up in a home where dancing was an everyday event. I can still see my mom dancing around to Tom Jones's "Whats new pussycat" while making supper. My dad, ever the charmer, was no slouch either. He could do the foxtrot like there was nobody's business. 

The dancing is one of the things I miss the most about my youth and so in the spirit of being thankful, mom, dad, thanks for the wonderful memories. I miss you both. 

And to you my readers, I offer you my favorite dance - The Tango.

Laura, I dedicate this picture to you........happy dancing!
