some fun

Cool art that will mess with your head!

How many horses in this picture? You should find 7.
I found 5.

Look at the middle column.
Where does it end?

Do you see four people?

Who is the tallest?

A face? . Or, the word 'liar' ?

What do you see here?
Do you see the word "LIFT"?
Or, a bunch of black splotches ?


I found all of them right away.

good news bad news

Recently, my doctor discovered that I had two lumps; one in my breast and the other in my thyroid.
I have had a number of ultrasounds done on both, as well as a number of other tests ( blood, etc.) ... it was time to go see a specialist.

After three months of waiting, I finally had my appointment today. Thankfully, my Mom was by my side to keep me confident and be my second set of ears.
I have major anxiety about medical issues and can not focus on all the things they said to me. I always focus on the worst scenario presented, whether it is about me or not and that is all I hear.

Thank you Mom for being there!

Good news.

The doctor (a very nice man) dismissed the lump in my breast. He said that it would be something to watch, but not to worry about.

Bad news.

The thyroid has a lump and a biopsy had to be taken, which was done today.
There's nothing like starting your morning off with a huge needle in your throat.
I will have the test results back in three weeks.

I will likely have to have the lump removed. It will be sent to pathology and if it comes back showing anything... like cancer, then he will do a second surgery and remove the thyroid.

Scary....YES... but I have my family behind me, and they are holding me up.
I told my Mom today this is really hard for me to deal with because I am a MOM.

Life is precious... tell your children, family and friends that you love them every chance you have!
Hugs and kisses are a must!
If you come home late and your children are in bed sleeping, go in and kiss them and let them know you love them even if it is just a whisper.
Let your partner know that you love them... you care and you are there.
We all forget that the little things are important. In a long term relation we dismiss a lot of the little things. They are as important now as they were on that first date!
Love to live.
Live to love.
Live for love.
Be happy.

Thank you for reading my post today!
Remember to have your yearly check ups!

I will be taking a few days off of blogging.
