Sunsets make me happy...

After the last depressing post I wanted to share with you something that has always made me happy. Sunsets by the water. This is the sunset on Easter- I had to stop and take a picture. It was breath-taking. Don't you agree?

I also wanted to thank you all for your support. It really means a lot to me.

I have finished my craft area in the new house and I did some impulse shopping yesterday to make me feel better and bought me a brand new EXPRESSION II!!! It should be here next week. Can't wait until I can lose myself in learning how to use it.

Sorry it's been a little while but...

We got the results back from the biopsy and my mother has lung cancer. We go today to Roswell Park Cancer Institute this morning to meet with her team of doctors and find out what treatments they have planned for her. Roswell is supposed to be the best- and I am glad that the doctors have referred her there.  My brother and I are taking it pretty hard and I know that she is scared but is pretending to be strong.  Her strategy is to ignore it until she has to face it and honestly, if I were in her shoes I would not  be able to do that.  I am a dweller.  With the house move, her new diagnosis, and Keith's father having a heart attack last week I have had about all I can take for now. I am trying to give my girls the attention that they need but it is really hard.  I have told my oldest that Grandma has cancer but my 10 year old would take it VERY hard- so I have told her that Grandma is sick but have not given her any details.
Sorry to have put this out there for you all but- I needed to get it all out and my best friend is my mother and I do not want to let her know how scared I am.  I am supposed to be the strong one who is taking care of everything. :)

We are leaving in a little bit.  Please wish us luck.
