Loving Life

UPDATE: Good news!  No changes in the spots so I don't have to go back to the oncologist for 6 months.  Yippee!

A couple of weeks ago, I found this ring, I instantly liked it. "Love Life" is my mantra, always looking for the yumminess around.


Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or any close-up) photo, post it on your blog and come back here and sign MckLinky. Don't forget to visit each other. :)

Then I saw the inside, "Be Brave", and it seemed like fate, destiny, kismet - this ring was for me.  Today, I will see the oncologist.  Today, I will get the verdict.  Today, I will see if I'm still in remission or if those "suspicious areas" need more exploration.  And when I look at those little words, Love Life, I can't help but think also, Be Brave.  I'll let you guys when I know, but that won't be until afternoon.

  1. Funny, when I saw the photo I knew where you were going even before I read the text. My fingers, and everything else I can cross are crossed for ya girl. And with the collective power of the Bloggiverse behind you, what t-cell isn't going to turn and run? (That is what they call those, right? Or am I thinking of something else?)

  28. Hi Lisa,
    I just wanted to say hello to the host as it is my firs visit here. I am sorry to hear about your problems.
    That's a beautiful ring and message or even a good sign.
    I’ve been there too and I can tell you that illness , in most cases, is just a state of mind. If you really "love life", think positive!
    Wish you all the best and I hope all goes well for you!!
