I ♥ Faces: Pink Week

I've been taking a forced vacation from blogging for the last few weeks... it seems like two teaching positions, two kids, two dogs, and whatever else life throws at me has been consuming my every waking moment (and I don't blog well in my sleep).

On the sidelines was the nagging concern of health issues. A pre-30th birthday call announcing that I might be cancerous rocked my world. Two months afterward, my doctor finally returned the test results of my biopsy and has found me to be ovarian cancer free! It's fabulous news, as I'm not quite ready to take on a battle for my health of that magnitude. There are a lot of follow up tests to check on the pesky abnormal cells I'm harboring, but God willing they'll be nothing more than "different from the norm" for the remainder of their collective (my) life. We'll call them eccentric and move on to more important things, like being Mommy.

Here's my entry for this week's theme in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month: My beautiful little girl who hopes to live a long, healthy, and prosperous life where she will one day become an artist, singer, circus performer, whatever she desires.

And as long as we reach for a cure for cancer (and other terrible attackers of our health), she'll do just that.
