A Door With A Statement

Since it's October, our school, like many others, is celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One of the many interesting activities is the Door Decorating Contest. Contest or not, I got excited when I heard about it. I welcome every opportunity to work on something am passionate about. I worked on my door and transformed it into an inspiration board that would greet me each morning as I come to school.

I had my regular tests and scans done last week and the results are very good. I have been in remission for two years and 10 months now. I can't wait to be out of the three-year window... and beyond! For now, let's live, laugh, love... just celebrate life!











Did I mention my door won first place? Teehee. Like what I said, contest or not... 

but who wouldn't be thrilled with these dainty, pink stuff -especially the pink carry-all and the fluffy socks and towel!

To the Door Decorating Committee, thank you, guys! Love each piece.

And the race continues...

Dearest Tes - your upbeat message and your spirit are so important in the fight against cancer. No wonder you are celebrating - as I am sure you do every single day - a cancer free life and the good wishes from all of us who love you and cheer your success. The message you pass on to your students is vital, as well.

Hi Tess, I want to congratulate you for the good results! Yey! God has been kind to you and your family. Seeing the photos of your nieces, your life is just a handful.

These door art are so meticulously done, and a well deserved title of "the craftista" in you.

Keep up the good work with a good and positive outlook. Hurray!
