10 yrs. Ago Today

This was a Book of Me challenge to use a photo from 10 yrs. ago and journal about what was going on in my life at that time.

10 yrs. ago I was diagnosed with Endometrial Cancer. Undergoing many tests, procedures, a total hysterectomy, internal radiation, etc. I feel I am a stronger person and that everything happens for a reason. This is a milestone that I am forever thankful for.

Photo of me and my 2 brothers and 2 sisters, Easter 1962.
I'm the little redhead second from the right.

Journaling: This photo is very special to me because it's of the 5 of us and I don't have many of those as my oldest sister Linda was killed in a car accident when I was 9 and she 19. I feel like I was cheated because we didn't have much time together. This is how we always dressed for Easter with the girls all wearing white dresses, bonnets, and having little purses. The boys in suits. I love that this photo is in color so that I can see all the facial details. We didn't have many colored photos in those days. I sometimes wonder how different our family would be if she were still here.
