Thank You




How can I thank you? I threw my heart out into the great wide open, imagining it being crushed and flattened...I was so wrong...my fears unjustified. Each and everyone of you have lifted my heart (and spirit) and I cannot thank you enough. All of you are so, so sweet and it really doesn't matter that we are scattered across the nation and the world....and countless miles separate us....I feel like my friends have arrived to comfort me. It really did help sharing this new journey...that's how I'm trying to think of it...I'm glad I did.

I was feeling so much better by yesterday that I was making these daffodils (instead of packing...ha, ha). For me, crafting is quite soothing and calming...and it felt good to be cutting apart egg cartons and creating flowers. I plan on showing you how to make them soon, seemingly, I can't do anything without making a tutorial out of it! :)








Anyway, thank you for your continued prayer as I fly to Bethesda to meet with the new doctor TODAY! I really must go pack!

  5. Know that you are taking my prayers with you!
    And, you are right, your friends have arrived to
    comfort you, now and all along the way! I have
    learned that lesson too, Michelle, words do matter.
    There are a lot of great lessons I have learned on my journey and you will too! "Friends" is one of the best.
    Sending Blessings,
    Tina

  8. I went back to your last post to see what was going on and I hate it that you have to go through this. I can't begin to know how frightening this must be for you, but I can offer prayers, positive thoughts and a shoulder to cry on if you ever need it.

    I don't like to put "bad things" out in blogland either...but, when my mother got sick and then died-the support from people I had never met on these blogs really helped carry me. I felt lifted up knowing that prayer was coming from all directions and so many places and people. I hope you feel that same love and prayer as you fight and win this battle.

    Hugs to you.

  14. This is the first time I've seen your blog but seems I was led to it so that I can add my prayers for your full recovery to excellent health - and for this experience to deepen your faith, for your relationship with Him to reach levels you never imagined, and for you to experience the peace of being fully wrapped in His loving arms. May He bless you and your family with heretofor unimagined blessings.

  15. We were in Savannah on vacation when I read this. Although we don't "know" each other, I think through blogging we all become family. The song "His Eye Is On The Sparrow And I Know He Watches Me" keeps running through my mind....you are a child of God and he will not forsake you. Prayers are going up for a good report and a wise doctor.

    Hugs from Alabama!

  17. Michelle, I am wishing you a safe trip and an excellent doctor as well. I've just recently found your blog and I love it. You are extremely talented and your tutorials are excellent. I too will keep you and your family in my prayers. Even though we've never met I feel as if we are friends and I hope for a speedy and complete recovery!

  18. Michelle...here we are praying for healing and comfort for you and you turn around and show us a beautiful craft. How like you...sharing beauty. These daffodils remind me of renewal, so I think of them as the representation of your journey. You will come through this strengthened and renewed. Hugs.

  19. Michelle: I am new to "knowing you" but what I have read makes me know that you are a very strong woman and you will get through this. My daughter and I both have come through some health matters and staying strong and positive does wonders. When you are able to look back with a clear mind you will see that too. And when you are up to it, I will love learning how to make the daffodils...Good luck, my prayers go with you....Judy

  20. I have a local friend who is also in Bethesda seeking treatment for her cancer. She is feeling the love of all of her facebook friends who are supporting and encouraging her to fight on. You are in good hands.

  21. Can't wait to see the tutorial for these, they are adorable. As always. You are such an inspiration!

  22. I have never been through anything close to this and I feel fear just reading your blog. BUT (which means negate everything prior to the word but) I serve an AWESOME GOD and he works miracles every day. We all have limited time here and look at the impact you are making with your creativity, courage and love for others. You may want to do research on the healing power of laughter. I heard once that a man with cancer said he would only allow happy into his home. So he obtained Candid Camera videos and watched them every day and the rule was only laughter was allowed...The result was LIFE Changing. God Bless You.

  23. My most sincere sympathy for what you are going through! As a breast cancer survivor, I remember the fear and turmoil...and frustrations. If you are interested in seeking a non-chemo way to fight cancer, I've had great success with the protocol on www.tbyil.com. No matter how you choose to fight for your life, know that you are surrounded with love - even from those who are not part of your private homelife!
