As we all say goodbye to July and the summer is official more than 1/2 over ...it seems like the mode of anticipation is winding down and the dread of oncoming winter has begun. At least for me a native Virginian it has!!
This week came with some big surprises - 1st my doula (birth coach) who helped deliver my son, helped deliver a baby on the freeway this week! Welcome Cynthia Freeway and congratulations for the successful delivery Wendy! 2nd one of my dear friends who has been supporting her mother through a breast cancer experience announced her mother's surgery and scans produced FREE and CLEAR results! So congratulations to Tricia and her family.
This serves as a great reminder that life comes with many ups and downs - moments of fear and concern - but then moments of celebration arise and carry us forward. Please celebrate this week in honor of friends Wendy and Tricia and those that they care for.
