Beautiful You...

They are so very brave, they are so very beautiful, all the women that come to the hospital for their treatments, hoping to get rid of the poison that is trying to eat away their body, and their souls. I can tell at first glance that they are fighters, they are striving to conquer the beast. They come in with a smile and they leave with hope. I admire the ladies for their strength, their beauty.

Please join me at CAS-tastic Wednesday Challenge - Focus On Sentiments! I'd love to check out your clean and simple creation that packs a punch with just a few words. This week's sponsor is Your Next Stamp. Check out the below design team links for some out of this world creations:

  12. this is simply elegant. I love it! and your story choked me up a bit- one of my best friend's husbands was given miraculous news yesterday- his chemo worked!
    So glad you had a nice weekend away- hope it completely relaxed & recharged you!
    And thank you for leaving such kind words for me- they mean the world...
    (and yes, vintage cream is a hybrid & generally does give pretty good coverage...)
