Missing Arizona

Home is where the Heart is... I think Mom left a little piece in Arizona. We had such an amazing time together! I still feel like it was just the other day and I miss her being here so much. Our special 10 days together was much needed away from normal life and worries. She came between radiation and chemo to relax and recuperate before treatments begin again. Words can not even describe how strong and determined she is. However, even the strongest people need an extreme amount of support and encouragement often. It's not easy. I could tell that her visit was not a walk in the park, but she pushed herself in good ways to enjoy herself. Just like she pushes herself to try and get out of bed each day and walk into the treatment room. It also took patience, love and encouragement on my part to help her get through some days. I wish I was there with her and look forward to seeing her again soon. I'll share a few of my favorite photos for you. Please continue to keep Mom in your thoughts and prayers but more important please let her know! Thank you so much!
