Before I forget, here’s my five for today (focusing on the physical since that’s harder for me):
1. I have lovely almond shaped eyes
2. My body is a healthy one – I almost never get sick.
3. I have naturally curly hair and when people used to ask who did my perm, I’d answer “God” (hee!)
4. Even if they aren’t strong, my nails grow and grow and grow. I can cut them all today and in a week they’d be back to where they are now.
5. Despite a sprained knee in 1997 and many, MANY sprained ankles as a teen, my legs are strong(ish) and carry me where I need to go.
Thanks to Anita for taking me up on the challenge. Anyone else want to join in?
In addition to being a chemo card angel, I decided to be a card angel for a senior citizen. I’m good at cards and letters and think this would be a nice way to brighten someone’s day. I love sending stuff to my chemobuddy and really get into it. So, why not, hey? I already have one with this nice lady in Cali whom I met through work and I send her a note each week now. She called to stop meds for her cat and was so so so sad about him passing away. My heart went out to her. She said he was a particular breed of cat that isn’t found all that often and wanted another but didn’t know of anyone who raised them. I suggested she Google it and see and she said she didn’t have a computer (can you imagine???). After we hung up, I was nudged to do a bit of research on it, found about 10 breeders in her area on Google and sent them to her with a nice note. I didn’t sign my full name, just Lisa. She tracked me down and said that she got the note just when she was feeling particularly sad about losing Cougar and it amazed her that someone would take the time to do that. Especially so since I didn’t even know her. So, we decided to be pen pals! :) Cool, hey?
Anyway, so I signed on to be an angel to a senior buddy. I am thinking that it is no small coincidence that my first and most loved baby doll was named (guess what?) Angel.
