Anna's Day
I could not let this day pass without wishing my mother a very happy birthday. My mother is a great teacher. During the course of my life she has taught me so much about life and taught me to appreciate so many things. Let’s see, if I made a list it would include:

-Faith in God is the first priority
-Family is definitely next
-A love for Frank Sinatra and Big Band music
-Loyalty and Dedication
-Perseverance and Determination
-How to make home made pasta (and other traditions!)
-Selflessness and Humility
-Acceptance and Appreciation
-How to say the Rosary
-To be a good friend
-To love generously and unconditionally
-To enjoy laughter often (except on Fridays!)

This list would go on forever! The wisdom my mother has passed along to my sisters and me is endless! I am most thankful for the example she has set as a strong woman who has been a nurturer, protector, and confidant. She has taught me by example what it means to be courageous and brave. When someone points out how similar I am to my mother, the only thing I can say is, “Thank you.”

Happy Birthday, Mom! I’d whistle a tune for you, but you never taught me how to whistle!

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.
