These lilies are from my co workers garden and they smell fantastic. She brought them in for me to celebrate my completion of radiation. It really was a big day for me. 35 mornings driving almost 50 miles round trip. I didn't miss one appointment, because I knew they would tack it on at the end. Believe me, there were mornings I sat at my kitchen table staring into my coffee cup wondering if it was worth it. I know it was, I'm cancer free and I'm done!These beautiful flowers were sent to my office by my dear friends Paula and Jeff. I know they have bee cheering me on from the middle of their wheat fields in OR. Paula and I have talked and emailed our way through this journey together. She traveled higher mountains and rougher roads with her son, who turned 30 this year. Paula, you've been such a support to me, and I thank you for your friendship!
So once again, I close by saying,
Take time to smell the roses....or lilies...or whatever flower you happen to be passing by.


  1. Hi Sharon, I have been thinking about you a lot this past week. I have a friend going in today to get the results of her mammo, they wouldn't give them to her over the phone, she is scared to hear what they have to tell her.

    I am so happy for you that you are done and cancer free CONGRATS!!

  2. Woooo bring out the champagne, tequilla and what ever else, because it's time to party!!!
    I'm so incredibly happy for you, and I truely take it as an honor to tell the people in my life the MY Aunt is officially a breast cancer survivor!
    You really are an inspiration to us all!

    Love you!
