Sad times but we all must move on!

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

It has been too long since my last update. Unfortunately my niece (Cathy's Quilt) lost her battle with cancer but taught me many lessons about life in her last days. One of the most important things was a reminder that in the end all we have is our health. Because she couldn't control what happened to her, I am determined to do all I can each day to keep myself as healthy as possible. I am also determined to remain an active participant on Sparkpeople because having support is what keeps me going every day!
A big thank you to all the people on here for your encouragement and prayers. I appreciate all of you so much.

    I hope you are processing the loss well and will continue on your journey to being healthy. Perhaps you can dedicate your new healthy lifestyle to your niece who won't get the chance to be healthy again? I know you will make it because you are strong.

    You will make it.

    So sorry for your loss. It is a great reminder for all of us to can take care of ourselves. Your niece could not control what happened to her, but many health issues are controllable and we should do our best to take care of our bodies. Take care!
