We Can Rebuild Her
Better than she was before… Better, Stronger, Happier. A Breast Cancer Journal

One Rawkin’ Reaction

At a 40th birthday bash last night, Mark and I ran into an acquaintance from our early days of parenting.

She asked about JustOneMoreBook! and I told her we’d replaced it with a breast cancer blog.

“When did you have that?!” was her shocked response.

That beautiful, knee-jerk, past-tense reaction swelled me with glee. And it’s been echoing in my head ever since.

Cancer in the past tense.
The distant past tense.

Like a bad cold
or a fall
or a notch on my belt.

Thank you, Ashley. For being the first.

    Very soon, you will have another blog inspiring more and more people. Hopefully it will be about teaching because you are an excellent teacher. Bisous Andrea…Have fun at PAB!

    Its all in the perspective, I love sculptures! Dad looks small, not tall, perhaps could fit in the behind-the bike trailer. Don't worry about the bumps in the road. Happy summer Lucy and Bayla.
