Dr. Phil calls them "defining moments."
I don't know if I would have started taking photographs for arty reasons or just for fun if I had not been given a good camera. I would have not had the idea to buy one for myself. I also think that if I had not met some photo buddies, that it would have never occurred to me to go out on photo field trips. It has been the most rewarding "just for fun" thing I have enjoyed. I will do it until I can no longer hold a camera or see through the viewfinder. I can't help it. I am addicted.
2. Fall 2004: long wintery time. Enough said about that.
3. September 2008: Meeting the hormone specialist that diagnosed my Catamenial Epilepsy. His words "I have seen this and know what this is" brought tears to my seizurey eyes. :)
4. October 2005: My parents moved to Missouri. I had not lived by my family my entire adult life until my folks moved to Missouri. It has been wonderful. To see them for Sunday dinners, to have our friends join us in Popper Holler, to build a strong steady friendship with them, and to see the children bond and grow closer to them has been so rewarding. I know they should not be on the "We Love Missouri" marketing team, but I am soo glad they have come to be with us. They is why they came. To grow closer to us. Mission accomplished.
7.Speaking of cancer, you know what is coming next.
October 2006: Read all about it here....
I could write a book about the journey of terminal cancer, from the outsiders point of view,
but I know I do not have the skills to do it. This journey is hard.
