What does my blog mean to me?
This blog at this time in my life is so much more than I would have ever expected. I started my blog a little over 16 months ago for reasons of non-other than to write about my life; where I had been, what is occurring today, where am I going into the future. That was it, nothing really special in that I am just an ordinary person living an ordinary life. Over the past year as you know life threw me a curveball, an unexpected event that would lead me through a journey with cancer. This blog now is an important part of my support that I have from you; my supporters, my cheering section, my shoulders to cry on, my rocks of faith. In the past couple of weeks, I thought about giving up my writings and completely deleting my WP blog. That is how this cancer is affecting me; it wants me to give up and call it quits. But, I am stronger than that and I have you my wonderful friends, who I truly appreciate seeing each and every day. So my blog will continue.
What animal would I choose to be?
This was and is a difficult question for me as I honestly do not know what animal I would be. There are animals that display strength, animals that are weaker in appearance; then there are animals that are fighters and animals that are cuddlers. I think I am all the above depending on the day, how I am feeling and what I am in need of to take on each day as it comes. Today with the current happenings in my life, I choose a canine, yes a dog. Maybe that comes across as an easy pick amongst all animals in the world. But think about it; dogs display strength and sometimes appear weak in appearance; they can be fighters and they can certainly be cuddlers. My dog Roxy depends on me as I depend on others. I choose to be a dog.
