"Thank You" Thank You

Hi Helene,
Thought about you a lot today while I was getting my walking in. Then I get home and see a card in my mailbox from you. I couldn't wait to read it because I had no idea what it was for...I should be sending YOU cards!! So I open it to see that it is a thank you for the chemo goodies and company from a couple of weeks ago. You really made my day because I really feel like "what comes around, goes around". I remember very vividly how much it meant to me when friends and neighbors did the smallest things to help me out when Scott was sick. I truly feel like this is a full-circle moment for me and I couldn't be more humbled to be a part of your life.

For those of you who don't know me: my husband, Scott was diagnosed with a non-hodgkins lymphona exactly 10 years ago this month. My daughter was 4 weeks old and my son was 3 years old at the time we found out. Needless to say, it was an extremely trying time for my family and every ounce of help was greatly appreciated. My family did not live close by so I truly counted on others to help when they could.

You are so inspirational and strong and I absolutely adore you. Hope you are finding today a GREAT DAY!
