Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies!~ Thank you all so much for your comments yesterday! I have forgotten to thank you for your thoughts and prayers for the family concerning my husband's aunt. I'm so sorry about that . I appreciate it so much!
Before I get on with the rest of my post, I want to talk to candidly about a subject that is very important to me and hopefully will be to you as well. When was the last time you did a self breat exam?? I'm being serious. Do you do it when you think about it, once a year, once a month (like you should) or never?? When I was doing this I wondered about how many of you take the time to do it. Now please don't think I was being a pervert because I thought of you while doing it. I just know that even with today's knowledge and how high the risk is, there are still women , and yes men, who do not partake in the ritual. Almost two and a half years ago, I went with my mother for a mamogram. She hadn't had one for eons. But her doctor found something that concerned him and told her to have it done. A week later she got the results and it confirmed our fears. In just a very few days , she and I were at the surgeon's office for a consultation. She would have to have a mastectomy . I asked the surgeon how comfortable he was with the size of the lump and he told us that there was hope and that he unfortunately sees that size all of the time. You know what size it was ? It was about the size of a quarter , but spherical and starting to spill out on one side. He sees that size so much because people do not take the time to examine themselves. I mean really examine themselves. It's not just a matter and poking around a little bit. Get on the internet and educate yourself about how to do it.Keep a journal of each months findings, ask your doctor or the American Cancer Society or whatever your local cancer organization you have if you're not in America , and get a self -exam card to hang in your shower. Just do it! You owe it to yourself and your family! :) Btw....my mom is getting ready to head into her second year of remission!
Ok, now let's get on with something a little more pleasant. I worked some more on Mrs. O'Leary and it filled the door in all of the way. Now it looks like a door and not a cellphone! This is soooo much fun to work on ! I'll be sad when it's over ,but I have a ton of other patterns that I can stitch up , so I certainly won't be bored!:)
This may sound silly , but when I was finished with LHN's Little House Neighborhood, I really really missed working on it . So much so that I was "stuck" and couldn't think for several days what to stitch! Like I said, silly!
I thought I would leave you today with a little list of some blogs for you to checkout this weekend.Some of these may be some you've seen and some may not. So without further ado, here they are:
Well, that it for me today. Thank you all for stopping by and sharing some of your time with me. Hope you all have a super weekend!!
'till next time,
Don't be a stranger,
