A year ago was a blur....

I was thinking I can not believe how busy I have been for about 4 months. I am not complaining though. I rather be doing what I am doing then being sick and not able to get up. Last year during the holidays I was going through chemo. It was super hard for me to function and enjoy my girls. So this year we are taking the girls to Disney for Christmas. I decided this back in the Spring. I knew if I felt up to it I wanted to make special memories with them. I know they will never forget watching their Mommy struggle to wake up and care for them but I thought doing something different would fabulous. I will fill you in on our trip this weekend. I am so excited!

Last year a lot of my blog friends made me ornaments for my tree. It meant the world to me. It is a reminder of all the praying and support I received. I truly will never forget it. You all followed me and gave me something to look forward to and I thank you for that. This year I have a request. My Mom gave up her life for me while I was going through my treatments. She drove back and forth to sit with me while I was getting my chemo and stayed with me on the weekends. She was a real trooper. I know it was hard on her but she never complained and I never saw her sad. She always came with a positive attitude that I would fight like a girl. So my favor is I would love for all of you to send her a Christmas card. I am not going to tell her so it will be a surprise. I would like for her to feel the love and support that I did last year. Thank you for always being there:)

I haven't visited you in forever! I'm very sorry. Since school started, it has been hard for me to read blogs and write my own posts. (I teach preschool.) Your one little comment on my blog earlier this year is what motivated me to write more consistently. I can't thank you enough for that! In fact, I actually have 2 blogs going! My other one is Angel Baby.

I'm glad you are feeling so much better this Christmas! You are so sweet to want to bless your mom. I'd be happy to send her a card!

Love and Blessings, Leslie
