Ring That BELL!

There are so many words and emotions attached to the events of yesterday and the events of the past 6 months. Bonds formed, lives forever changed, and a fighter I never knew existed.
MD Anderson (the cancer center in Houston) has a bell in the chemotherapy area. After completion of chemotherapy the patients get to ring the bell to signify the end and the beginning (the inscription reads: "to life").

Yesterday marked my sister's final day of chemo...battle #1 fought and completed!!

May we all take her bravery and be reminded that the end of one chapter is truly just the beginning of the next. Do not stop or stall just because you hit one goal, one obstacle, one day. Ring your bell and allow the sound to change, shape, and propel you forward.


Thank you so much for all of your prayers and thoughts. They are working!!
