Good Grief, Charlie Brown
As Linus once said, "...of all the Charlie Browns, you are the Charlie Browniest." I have loved Charlie Brown since I was a child. He is the eternal optimist and sees only the good in people. Otherwise, why would he continue to play football with Lucy? Why would he stay with Linus in the pumpkin patch when no one else would? Why would he not join another baseball team? Why on earth would he continue to fly that godforsaken kite?

Because he is Charlie Brown! He is going to keep trying, keep believing, and keep putting himself out there.

Yes, today I once again found my inspiriation in Charlie Brown. In conversations this week I kept referring to my big round Charlie Brown head and how it has made wig and hat shopping/wearing difficult. As comical as it may seem, when I started drawing the comparison between myself and Charlie Brown, it actually got me out of my two-day slump. All I have to do is keep trying, keep believeing, and keep putting myself out there.

Like Charlie, I'll find the deeper meaning in life's experiences. Unlike Charlie, I'll never play football with Lucy!

oh, and . . . my baseball team will win!

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
