she said yes....

Almost a year ago, my oldest son met a wonderful young lady. She is one of those rare people who is beautiful inside and out. When you meet her for the first time you feel as if she's been part of the family forever...

She met mom and they were able to spend some time together. Of course mom liked her immediately just like the rest of us did...

This past weekend my son proposed to her... It was so sweet. He paid attention to every detail from the custom designed ring to the horse and carriage ride, where he asked her to be his bride. It's so wonderful to see happiness and romance still exists...
Those precious moments somehow make all of the sadness and pain of life worth it all....

And I know mom is smiling, because she said "yes"........

It takes days, months, and years sometimes to find happiness in life after you have lost a person who is so dear to you...and when that happiness shines on you, you know that the love you feel, the brightness of it, is your mom smiling down from above.

Hi!

Amidst all the sadness you've experienced, there's suddenly something to be joyful about! My brother (after a messy divorce) has now announced his wedding plans to a lovely woman. My regret was that Mum wouldn't be here to witness this happy event. However, you know, I'm sure she's happily smiling down on us all, and she'll be there on the wedding day, I assure you, in our hearts and minds.

I'm sure your Mom is rejoicing with the others in your family!

Take care.

I'm slowly working through your archives, because you have such an inspiring way of sharing the difficulties and joys of life.

This entry proves that happiness can grow out of difficulty, and than good things happen to those who deserve it.

I know she's smiling, too.

(written September of 2005) I have learned much in the last nine months. I have read that ovarian cancer whispers. I say it screams. It just needs someone to listen. The American Cancer Society statistics for ovarian cancer estimate that there will be 22,220 new cases and 16,210 deaths in 2005. This is a death rate FOUR TIMES that of breast cancer.Almost 70 percent of women with the common epithelial ovarian cancer are not diagnosed until the disease is advanced in stage. The 5-year survival rate for these women is only 15 to 20 percent. This is unacceptable. Women need to be made more aware of the symptoms, and doctors need to listen to their patients. Especially when the patient tells them that they fear they have ovca, as my mother did for almost a year before she was finally diagnosed. It’s so sad and senseless when a woman knows the symptoms but can’t get anyone to listen to what she is saying.
