A Breath of Fresh Air

It is courage, courage, courage, that raises the blood of life to crimson splendor. Live bravely and present a brave front to adversity.

MUSIC: "Let there be Peace on Earth"

n order to write a post, I have to be inspired...this morning it's just not happening. So instead I've decided to share a few of my fall photos with you. I think they are breathtaking..not because I took them, but because of the beauty that our fall season offers us.

'Tis easy enough to be pleasant, when life flows like a song. But the man worthwhile is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong.

If you are having a bad day, or if there's just no sunshine in your neighborhood today, maybe my pictures will help to get your day going. I think this is a beautiful season, even if it does remind us that winter is close at hand.

Some of my viewers have probably had a
difficult week with medical tests, chemo or
radiation treatments, as well as anxiety of what
lies ahead.

Hopefully some of these pictures will help to bring a breath of fresh air to your difficult days.

It's been great meeting some of you this week as well through the chat forum and also through your emails. We all share that common thread of cancer and we can all appreciate the stress and uncertainties it brings to every family.

Your photos are awesome Deb - thanks for sharing them. I am in high scanxiety mode today, having just gotten the call that my new scans will be this Monday Oct 27. So the mind runs and the stomach rolls. I'll see my onc Thurs Oct 30 for results, so it'll be a lonnnnng week for me.

I'm reading a 'lite read' book at the moment called Three Songs for Courage - about teenage love & angst in the 50s, but the best part is that each chapter starts with a quote from Odawa Sachem Amos Littlebird, one which I find so appropriate for your website

"Friendship makes prosperity more shining, and lessens adversity by dividing and sharing it"

Thanks again for all you do.

I was having a bad day due to side effects but after looking at those beautiful pictures, it helped me forget about my pain.

once again, your words and pictures bring my anxiety level down a notch (maybe even two!)
Thanks for sharing!
