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.

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

Crochet Charm

I love hand made clothing. I used to sew up a storm when I was in Fashion Design school (not that I had any choice!) and I loved the fact that I wasn't limited to a certain color or pattern. I could make anything I wanted. My mom was a great knitter and could crochet afghans with her eyes closed. I however, did not inherit that gene and so I must admire the handiwork of those that did such as Ninela from Sub rosa. Check out some of her handiwork below (I especially love the wedding dress - it's so very romantic!).

What a beautiful wedding dress! I can just visualize a knight in shining armor coming to her side!
