A little bit about myself. I'm a 44 year old mom of 5. That's not a typo! I have been blessed with a large family. I have 3 grown children. One a mother to my beautiful grandbabies, another a teacher and my son is studying music at NYU. I also have my babies (that's what I call them) 11 and 10 years old at home. My youngest son, Jared has autism. He's so smart and teaches me something everyday! My daughter, Emily is so much fun to be around and I love that we're besties (well she's not a teenager yet). At the age of 37, I found a lump. Turns out I had multifocal tumors in my breast. I also found out I had a particularly aggressive form of breast cancer. I went through chemo for months and then surgery after the tumors had shrunk. It's been almost 7 years since my diagnosis. I must say that my journey through breast cancer allowed me to take a step back and re-evaluate my life. I was so stressed worrying about Jared's autism and trying to "fix" him that I wasn't enjoying all that he had to offer. I now take each day as a blessing. I have a wonderful husband, great kids and know that life is too short to worry about the little stuff. I now live in the present and not what the future might hold.
As for my weight...over the past couple of years the pounds started adding up. I chalked it up to having to go through menopause early due to cancer treatment. I have made so many excuses, but really it's all about what I put in my mouth everyday. I hope to make healthier food choices because I LOVE food. I enjoy sitting around the kitchen table with my family and eating and talking. I can't give that up! So here's to a new healthy start and to losing these extra pounds!

    The little things fit perfectly into our hearts. I cherish them too.

    Several years ago, during a much anticipated meteor shower, my daughter and I drove out to a field at 1 a.m. and waited. We took blankets and pillows and travel mugs of cocoa. We laid on top of the roof of my car and watched as the "stars" flashed across the night sky.

    Enjoy that moon with your son. You'll tell the stories forever.

    What a pleasure it is sharing this journey with you!

    Hi sweet thing!

    I think when I first started visiting your page you hadn't completed your bio about yourself at the time. I read it this morning for the first time. How inspiring! You have been through a great deal of hardship but also, you have been offered some of the most incredible blessings. For you to realize and take full advantage of those gifts is such an incredible feat when it would have been easier to give up. I am in awe of you and am so glad to have read your story!

    To answer your question, we took a trip to Sedona Arizona and then went to Vegas afterwards. Have you ever been to Sedona? If not, I think it may suit you. It's quite an inspirational place to visit. If you ever decide to go, let me know. There are some things you shouldn't miss.

    Have a fantastic week!
