Remember The Rooster

Over the last couple of days, I have received so much support from family, friends, and my extended online community with regard to my diagnosis with cervical cancer. Right now, I'm a little overwhelmed with the shock of this news and all the kind words. It may take me a little while to properly respond to all of you who have offered me so much, so please accept my thanks here for the time being.

As I am kind of numb and speechless right now, this entry is actually brought to you courtesy of an e-mail I received from Neil of Citizen of the Month fame. He wrote to tell me to be strong like the rooster I presently have in my masthead, and he accompanied his support with this lovely inspirational attachment:


Thank you, Neil, for being so thoughtful at a time when you and Sophia are waiting for her test results. All the best to the two of you.

Although, that rooster appears to have only one leg, and I do hope that I get to keep both of mine.
