About this blog

I was diagnosed with breast cancer on June 11, 2010. As a result of my treatment, I have lymphedema in my left arm. I draw my strength from the Lord, as well as my family's Scots-Irish heritage. Our Graham's were a tough and scrappy bunch of fighters on the Scottish/English border. They came to America and continued to fight when necessary: in the American Revolution; the Civil War; and my brother is a Captain in the U.S. Army. My ancestors settled this country against all odds. My great-grandmothers on both sides of the family were pioneer women who settled the West. Along with that heritage, and the full armor of God, I am walking the walk and fighting the good fight.

Happy feet

The pedicure felt great! I walked into the salon and a friend was there getting a manicure and pedicure as well. Her boys are the same age as Olivier. Now that they are at the middle school, we rarely see each other.  The elementary school was much more conducive to chit chatting parents! Anyway, it was fun to catch up and chat.

My shins were a little sore, so the massage felt great.  I went in there and asked for it all! A scrub/masque on my feet and legs? Yes!   Paraffin dip? YES! Flower? Yes!

And I didn't even smudge them getting into the car!
