Today, I'm in recovery mode after a long 32kms walk around the Bay Run in Five Dock, Sydney. It was a glorious day, but 6 hours in the sun finally took its toll, and I ended up sleeping from 4pm in the afternoon until 9.30am this morning! The only enticement to get out of bed was a healthy breakfast lovingly cooked by my hubby, followed by a very therapeutic massage...I know, I'm blessed!

‘Happiness is the meaning and purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.’ Aristotle.
Happiness means different things to different people. To me, the pinnacle of happiness is to be blessed. Family and friends may have noticed that I don't often use the word "luck". It's usually, "Oh, what a blessing", or "You are so blessed"!
What could be better than to be blessed by God. The most amazing thing about it, is that He blesses us in the most unlikely of circumstances. Even in hard times or tragedy, we’re blessed.
You know, when my brother was making the video for my recent fundraiser dinner, he asked if I could send him some photos of when I was having chemo. It was the strangest thing, but every single photo I found, I had a huge smile across my face. Even in the one with my bald head for all the world to see, I have the cheesiest grin ever!

"My Road to Paris" Fundraiser Dinner was held on Saturday night...and after hours of planning, I'm extremely pleased to say it was a huge success! Amazing food, fun atmosphere and awesome entertainment! Thank you to each and every person who attended and participated in any way!!
I feel like shouting from the rooftops...WE DID IT! Together, we exceeded my fundraising target of $10,000! Thanks to all of my beautiful sponsors and supporters, we've now raised a whopping total of $13,522.00 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF)!
