As most of you know and for those who do not, my 32 year old daughter had cancer ,for the second time in her life,during 2008.
She began chemotherapy on June 10, 2008 and her last chemotherapy and radiation treatment was given on December 10, 2008.
We took pictures all along the way of Amy's journey. Some of the pictures will go in a collage and some will be put away until she knows what she wants to do with them. But this picture featuring Amy as a Butterfly and beautiful Maggie as Raggedy Andy, she allowed me to use on my blog.
This is the picture of my daughter, Amy, on October 31, 2008.
She had such Hope for plans that night. Halloween is always a biggie for Amy. She spends a lot of time deciding and planning what her costume will be.
I tease her that when she is 80 years old she will still be wearing a costume on Halloween.
When we arrived at the clinic and she passed out her bags of candy and Dr. Dexeus posed with her, she was found to have a 102 temp. This is a pretty serious situation for someone who has a low white count and cannot fight off infection like a normal healthy immune system.
Amy the Butterfly and Raggedy Andy, the most beautiful R.N. named Maggie posed for me so I could have a picture. I found it so poignant that Raggedy Andy was handing the Butterfly her "broken wings."
So many people across the blogging community have "BROKEN WINGS."

Thank You for stopping by for a visit today. I love to have you visit. It is my desire to pray for those who have a need and bring encouragement to those who need "Hope." There is no greater joy than to be able to lift up someone spirits.
Put your shoulders back and say, "I'M BEAUTIFUL!"
Put on a strand of Pearls...if you don't have a strand like me....go to the Dollar Store and buy a string.......wear them proudly...no one that matters can tell from a distance...lol...lol (you know real pearls or not...it is not the pearls that make you feel better...it is the att-i-tude toward yourself that has improved and when you feel better...there is HOPE
I am reminded of the beautiful christian, who looked at her friends and said, "I am so weak I cannot left my arms and praise the Lord." She knew she was going to die but she wanted to lift her arms in Praise to the Father. Each friend got on each side of the bed and lovingly lifted her arms so she could Praise the Lord.
That is what we must do for each other when our friends are sick, are broken hearted, and just don't know what tomorrow holds and they don't want to really know.....we have to lovingly lift their arms so they can Praise the Lord.
Jesus and the Wisdom Of the Holy Spirit is our only answer to save America...to bring jobs...to give us the wisdom to create jobs...to comfort us...to protect us...to be a friend that will stick closer than a brother...to love us
NOW FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR,
THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN.
~HEBREWS 11:1 KJV
