All I have to say is that I feel very happy about life lately.

I don't quite know why I'm in such a good mood-- the last round of chemo absolutely sucked, and I've got this whole cancer thing hanging over my head... yet for some reason, I just can't shake this quiet, glad feeling.

I love and admire my friends, I adore my family (from good ol' Grandpa to brand-new AJ), and it's just so damned pretty outside. I may have cancer, but I still feel vibrantly alive and connected, and I'm eager to see what tomorrow brings.

Life is so sweet. I hope you are able to draw the same conclusion as you navigate through your days because I believe there is happiness to be found all around us. You just have to be looking.


  1. Thanks for this, Shelly. You're something else.

  2. I'm happier knowing you are happy :) -mo

  3. My sweet sophie is next to me talking in her sleep. Nothing should sour me today

  4. yes, and clara, my daughter, just learned how to give 'kisses', the big, slobbery, open-mouthed kind. She seems thrilled when someone asks, leaning forward with pride and eagerness. Sending 'kisses' today, as well as a sleeve to wipe your mouth with :), Jules
