Sitting on the Edge

This past week I have been sitting on the edge ,waiting for results.  I recently had my yearly mammogram when  just a few days passed by and I got a call back saying they wanted me to come back and get some more pictures taken. Ugggh...it is amazing how fast you can be set back on your heels when there is a possibility of a life altering  situation lurking in your future. Your mind plays all kinds of tricks on you.   I am very fortunate and blessed that everything has turned out to be just fine for me.  There are many women putting  off  getting a mammogram because they are afraid of the actual test.  If this is the case for you, wouldn't it be better to catch it early ?   I am praying for all the women that I know  that are  suffering with breast cancer ,the ones that have survived and the ones that need to have the courage to make the appointment.  I am moving away from the edge and I hope that you will too.

Happiness

The sum of happiness is made up of a thousand details. A little kindness done one less fortunate gives the heart a beat of pleasure that no millinery or laces or jewels can possibly inspire.
To overcome prejudice is more satisfying than a ten-course dinner.
To subdue a difficulty and smother a selfish disire is to become strong and splendid.
If life is worth living at all, it is worth living in a state of progress and improvement.
If we moan and groan, filling the air with dissatisfaction and gloom, we can scarcely hope to partake of much contentment.
All you need is a good thump on the back by some cheerful soul who has faith in you, and promise to yourself that you will face your work and your worries cheerfully,-(Selected)
