She always maintained her positive attitude. Never once blaming Deity for this horrible disease that all but sucked the life out of her. She never once complained. She took the chance to search for family members and do her genealogy.
Yes readers, this lady is my hero.
She no longer works at our school. I miss seeing her and haven't taken the opportunity to visit her much anymore. She made a full recovery and is taking steps back to "normalcy".
I've been thinking about Mrs. M a lot the last week. Facebook has been doing a "Breast Cancer Awareness" thing where ladies have been posting their bra color. Many have wrote how stupid and worthless it was. "Shouldn't we spend our energies elsewhere? Like collecting money?" Although I didn't participate (Chadd just didn't think it'd look right since we have a joint account.) I don't think it was a completely stupid idea. Why? It got me thinking of Mrs. M and how even at 42 breast cancer is a threat. It's a reality. It reminded me that I need to be diligent in checking and making my health a priority.
If nothing else, people posting their bra colors got me thinking. Isn't that in itself worth it?
