May Your 2013 Be Blessed!


may your 2013 be blessed!

Well, it’s here again…New Year’s Eve!  The night when party revelers ring out the old year and ring in the New Year with champagne, family and friends, kisses at midnight and plenty of resolutions for the coming year!  For me, it’s a cancerversary and looking back at last year, I realize how far I’ve come.  https://misifusa.wordpress.com/2012/01/01/a-new-year-a-new-decade-welcome-2012/

Last year at this time, I was full of happiness as I’d lived 10 years since diagnosis of breast cancer.  I was very excited for the coming year as I was sure it would be full of happiness ~ for hadn’t I suffered enough in the last 10 years?  But it didn’t turn out as I’d planned at all for 2012 for in astrology terms, being the year of the dragon, https://misifusa.wordpress.com/2012/08/21/hope-in-the-year-of-the-dragon/  it was going to be a bumpy ride…and it surely was for me.

So today, which happens to coincide with my Mom’s birthday, another first without my Dad since he passed 6 months ago, will be a bittersweet and grateful day for me.  I am grateful that my sister AAngel and I can spend the day with my Mom, lunching at her favorite restaurant, and just enjoying the fact that we are all healthy and together ~ and able to celebrate with her.  However, it is bittersweet because last year, my parents insisted that we begin the new year with a family brunch to celebrate my 10 years so on January 1st, our entire family met for brunch.  We plan on meeting again tomorrow, but it will be sad without my Dad because we’ll officially be starting the year without him.

I’m not one to make resolutions since quite frankly, I break them.  The strain of making resolutions to last a year is too much for me.  On the flip side, I believe that we can begin new habits and break old ones everyday since each dawn ushers in a new day in which to begin again!  It’s not so much this monumental “I have to make resolutions” as it is, this habit needs to change today and because it is a new day, a new moment and new dawn, so shall it be.

So it is with peaceful resolve that I begin this morning…grateful as always to awaken to a new day, and excited to see what gifts will be showered upon my soul today since it is a bit of a celebratory day.  After lunch, tonight we will host and gather some of our family to celebrate another good year’s ending and the birth of a new year as well.

I want to thank each and every one of you for reading my blog, for commenting on it and for your sweet thoughts, prayers and support this year.  I am so grateful to all of you and I appreciate our connections and community!

I wish you a year filled with much

love, understanding, support, health,

wealth, joy, laughter and happy memories.

May your burdens be light, May your smiles be plentiful and

May you feel blessed every morn’ when you awaken!

(yes, I made up the above).

Shine On in 2013!


We Wish You a Merry…


I must admit I plucked this from a FB post from my cousin MAngel…because I loved it. 

I don’t care which way you wish me happiness…just please wish me a joyous season and a Happy New Year!  All this business about the political correctness of saying Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah or Happy Holidays or Joyous Kwanzaa for me is just silliness.  Just wish me happiness…that’s enough for me…and trust that I wish you the same!

To me, the holiday season is  simply about wishing you peace, joy, love and healing! 

I don’t care what holiday you celebrate ~ I just wish you well!

So from our house to yours!

Shine On!


Nothing is more beautiful and unique than you!

Nothing is more beautiful and unique than you!
Is there someone in your life who doesn’t realize how beautiful they are?  We all know a friend who needs to hear this…in fact, that friend may be YOU!  So this card is for all of you from me…Nothing is more beautiful and unique than YOU!
We need to celebrate ourselves, our beauty and our uniqueness.  Each of us is special in our own way and it’s so important that we treat ourselves with love and caring!  Sometimes I’ve heard my inner dialogue to myself and I know that I would never speak that way to my friend…so critical and not friendly at all!  So one of my resolutions this year is to speak to ME as I would to my friends…with love, caring and kindness.
Because we must celebrate our strengths, let them glow and show and share those unique gifts we each have ~ connect with others who are like-minded and rejoice in who we are!  I may not be your idea of beautiful on the outside, which is fine by me…but I hope that my inside beauty shines through to you.
Let your inner beauty shine through to others! 
You have so much to offer ~ please share your uniqueness today!

A New Year ~ A New Decade ~ Welcome 2012!

Happy Anniversary to Me!  Ten years ago, at 1pm on New Year’s Eve, my breast specialist confirmed that I had breast cancer and my life changed in an instant.

I celebrate this day, every year, thankful that I am here yet another year in which to celebrate this special personal milestone in my life and in addition, the giddy anticipation of a fresh new year and the closing of the old one.

This year, I will say, is my personal favorite thus far as I (knock wood) have no pressing health issues other than the ‘new normal’ that I live with daily and my family was with me to celebrate and they are healthy as well.


I happily relinquish the past decade to my chemo-brained memory, noting the blessings I received from God in the gifts of my husband, my children, my family, my friends and ‘friends I hadn’t met yet’ who helped me survive the past 10 years ~ knowing always that I was loved and supported.

My Presents of Presence shall we say…

My plans for 2012 are many, varied and constantly evolving which I adore… I have decided that starting 2012, my NEW DECADE will be something special ~ a mixture of my victory over breast cancer and all that entails and somehow a way to be able to bring all that I’ve learned and experienced to fruition in my life.

It’s a new life for me…a new lease on life, a new chapter in this Journey of Endurance as I like to call my life.  I am open to new experiences ~ I want to share what ‘I know for sure’ a la Oprah, add to the many blessings that I’ve been graced with and to acknowledge that I am so grateful for this Journey of Endurance that my breast cancer has led me on the past 10 years.

So raise a glass with me (because I always see the glass as 1/2 full!) and let’s toast a New Year filled with an abundance of blessings, presence, love, health, wealth, prosperity, happiness, family and joy filled moments for us all!

May 2012 be your best year yet!  And look out, because here I come!
