Breast cancer awareness month

As a Breast cancer survivor of 9yrs, I find I have different reactions to Breast cancer awareness month even on a day to day basis. 

Sometimes I resent the reminder that 9yrs ago this month I was recovering from a mastectomy & fretting over starting chemotherapy. That our first wedding anniversary & my 40th birthday was over-shadowed by my recovery.

Other times I’m grateful & humble I’ve made it 9yrs past some of the worst days of my life. 

Mostly I wish for every awareness campaign there were equal amounts of energy put towards finding a cure.

08Jan21 When I was  taking the pic of Neurmal, Noble came hopping in to see what the excitement was about.  He’s getting around really well these days (about 2 months post surgery), but he does like to keep near the wall for steadying himself. Which is something I totally understand.  #tripodkitty #threeleggedcatsofinstagram

No texting while walking down steps Use Handrails". I saw this while out shopping and had to laugh because it was at the bottom of the stairs!  I sure hope there's a sign at the top of the stairs too!  #cf21 #hope #sillysigns #dumbpeople
24Jan21  There was a fire a few suburbs away. The wind changed and the smoke started coming in our direction. When the sun went down you could see the glow of the fire in the distance. Fortunately some much welcome rain came through and helped put it out.  #2021pad #fire #wildfiresmoke
17Jan21 You would think we were about to get some rain but it passed right over us. It sure looked ominous for awhile though!  This was taken outside a friend's place.  #2021pad #rainclouds #ominous #norain #nofilter
14Jan21  Ever feel like you're being watched??? Neurmal is waiting for me to fill the food bowl.  She obviously needs food ... she's nothing but fur!  LOL!  #2021pad #catsofinstagram
