"i chose to make sadness my softness,
uncertainty my openness,
my weak days my tend-to-me days,
my brokenness my beautifulness and my scars my strength"
i got news two weeks ago that my friend jennifer got the news that her cancer is back.
and that is not using x-rated words on the blog. because you know that i really want to way f*&k cancer. in capital letters. a million times over. it just never, ever stops.
i wrote a lot about jennifer on the blog previously when she was going through her fights and we did a happy mail campaign that you can read about here.
well, it is time to start another happy mail campaign. jennifer has surgery at the university of washington (same place i have had my surgeries) on the 25th so she will be in the best hands.
if you have been reading this blog long enough you know what a happy mail campaign is but just in case you haven't, let me explain it.
the goal is for jennifer (and if you would like to send mail to her awesome husband/caregiver mikei know that he would appreciate it as well) is to get one piece of happy mail (a card that just cheers her on while she recovers, a card to make her laugh and/or letting her know that good vibes are being sent her way) every week while she is recovering and making her way through whatever comes next.
if you would like to participate in the happy mail campaign, all you need to do is let me know that you want to be part of it and make sure that i know how to contact you. i will assign you a week and you send the mail and it is as simple and lovely as that.
i know first hand how nice it is to open your mailbox and see kindness and not the bills overwhelming your box. names you know. names you don't know it. just love. it is basically the best.m
i hope you will join me in bringing some cheer to the jennifer and mike.
please let me know by friday and i will get things organized over the weekend to assign the weeks.
thanks all, you are the best.
wherever jennifer and mike fight, we fight.
because we love fighters, and they are two of the strongest i am lucky enough to know.
sending much love to you jennifer and mike. all the goodness, mojo, and prayers are coming your way.
and soon some happy mail too.
love you guys.
