Beverly has been a special person in my life also, Beverly is the hostess for Pink Saturday, which is for the Awareness of Breast Cancer. Beverly features a website each Saturday, I was the first website she featured and such an honor for me. Beverly has emailed me such encouraging words, as I have been recovering from my 40th surgery.
I have had many complications, and still have many complications,
along my journey of Breast Cancer since 2003.
Each person is asked to share an experience for The Miracle Party.
I would like to share through my journey of Breast Cancer, I am Thankful for all the friends I have and have made through my website. For all the lovely gifts, cards, and food I have received.
Most of all through this journey, my husband Terry, has been my caretaker. Being a caretaker with all we have been through he has stayed at my side, not only taking care of me, but running the household, being my nurse, my hair dresser, my cook, my maid, my list could go on and on. The caretaker job is very hard, demanding, and burdensome. We have stayed close and he is my best friend as I am his, as we have known each other since we were 8 years old. Childhood Sweethearts and married for almost 33 years. I want to hold my glass up and give Cheers to my husband for all the things he has gone through with me. He deserves the Husband of The Years Award!
If had one wish I would give him something so special, that he has dreamed of,
yet he has not been able to do, for he has stayed at my side.
I am Thankful for My Wonderful Simple Man Makin It Do!
I am so honored to share with you a special event,
Beverly will be having on August 28, 2010.
Beverly will be joining a MIRACLE PARTY,
to celebrate Collette’s Recovery and Miracle Makeover sponsored by Guide Post!
